On December 13, 2003, “Saddam Hussein was found by a team of U.S. Special Forces hiding in a hole six feet underground nine miles from his hometown of Tikrit. …The president [Bush] gave a short televised speech. ‘This afternoon, I have a message for the Iraqi people,’ he said. ‘This event brings further assurance that the torture chambers and the secret police are gone forever.’ ”
