Hussein was so paranoid, it took two days for his TOP generals to get in touch with him. He used his phone TWICE, in the past ten years. He built all those palaces, and employed up to ten lookalikes at a time, with full accompaniment of limos and security, to keep everyone guessing as to his whereabouts.
Hussein was a survivor, and we were lucky to find his spider-hole, after the war. If we could have killed him, we would have...no question about it. We missed him numerous times, with barrages of bunker-busting missiles, due to his deceptive strategies. If Mossad knew where he was, they'd have told us, and he'd be dead now.
