Former Secretary of Defense "Donald Rumsfeld has revealed that Saddam Hussein took out a $60million hit on his [Rumsfeld's] daughters in revenge for the slaying of his two sons. The ex-U.S. Secretary of Defense said that the former Iraqi dictator offered the bounty to anybody who brought him both girls' heads. He was given the warning in a October 2003 meeting by which time U.S. forces had killed Saddam's sons Uday and Qusay and his 14-year-old grandson Mustapha. A similar threat was made to George W Bush's two daughters Jenna and Barbara, but the President had Secret Service protection which made him feel safer."
