WASHINGTON — The United States struck a "leadership target" in Baghdad Monday, military officials said.

The target was believed to be one or more of the top government or military leaders in Saddam Hussein's regime, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The strike was the result of "time sensitive" intelligence, meaning information which needed to be acted on quickly, the officials said.

The military officials said they did not know the identity of the target of the strike, or whether the target or targets had been killed.

I pray they got him too, but I fear that even his death won't end things abruptly there...

I don't think the kurds would like that... especially after all the help they've given us in the north...

but I agree... there should be the begginings of a new government started ASAP... one that includes representatives from all of the "factions"

I just don't think the steadfast loyal fanatics are going to be laying down their guns so easliy... now they have a martyr...

I hope the attack was successful. I heard the bomb explodes at over 10,000 celcius, that has got to be pretty hot. I wonder what the body looks like after being near the explosion of that explosion.

If this attack is successful, victory will be a lot easier to attain (it isn't like it hasn't been easy already, we are already chillin in his palace in Baghdad)
