The CIA outsmarted Tariq Aziz.

"According to Sky News sources, the CIA planted a false rumor with the British television network that Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz had defected, hoping Aziz would go on Iraqi television to deny it. He did. The CIA tracked him back to a bunker, and the Navy and the Air Force destroyed it with cruise missiles and bombs."

Think they're using a similar strategy with Saddam?
