Though it wasn’t known whether or not Saddam Hussein was still alive, “On July 3, 2003, [Coalition Provisional Authority leader] Ambassador [L. Paul] Bremer offered a reward of up to $25 million for the capture of Saddam or confirmation of his whereabouts. ‘Until we know for sure,’ Bremer said, Saddam and his family would ‘continue to cast a shadow of fear over this country.’ ”
