Reportedly Said At Capture

Japan Today

NEW YORK -- Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein said, "Don't shoot," when captured by U.S. troops at a farmhouse near his hometown of Tikrit, according to the U.S. weekly magazine Newsweek in its latest issue. After asking the U.S. military not to shoot him, Saddam said, "I am Saddam Hussein, the president of the Republic of Iraq," Newsweek said, quoting a military source.
The weekly magazine Time, quoting a U.S. intelligence official who read the transcript of the initial interrogation report, said Saddam was taken to Baghdad airport. When asked if Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, Time said Saddam told U.S. interrogators, "No, of course not. The U.S. dreamed them up itself to have a reason to go to war with us."
