Bremer: Saddam should be captured or killed
Saddam Hussein must be captured or killed so he can no longer be a rallying point for anti-US, British fighters in Iraq, the top U.S. official in the country said Sunday.
Paul Bremer, the chief civilian administrator of Iraq, said there were still leftover Baath Party members and perhaps "terrorists" from neighboring states fighting U.S. and British soldiers, who drew succor from Saddam's apparent survival.
"I think it is important that we either catch him or kill him," Bremer told the British Broadcasting Corp.. "There is no doubt that the fact that we have not been able to show his fate allows the remnants on the Baath regime to go around the bazaars and villages and say Saddam will come back so do not cooperate with the coalition."
