“SIGINT [signals intelligence] revealed that what was left of Saddam Hussein’s regime refused to accept the fact that they had been defeated. As late as April 8 [2003], the day before Baghdad fell, intercepted Iraqi satellite phone messages showed that Hussein’s son Qusay, the Republican Guard commander, continued to believe that Iraq was winning the war, with Republican Guard commanders telling him of ‘high American casualties and defeats of the allied forces in various cities.’ ”
