SEARCH AND DESTROY TEAMS IN BAGHDAD PRESS HOTELBaghdad (IP News)
Groups of US Marines and Soldiers roamed freely about Baghdad today. Several small bands were seen going from room to room in the Palestine Hotel, apparently searching for someone or something.
The troops were overheard saying "He's got to be here" and "This things just not over til we find him" and "when we get him I want him first"
When questioned if they thought Saddam Hussein might be in the hotel, they would not deny the possibility, but did state that he was not the object of the search.
"Arnett, you bastard, get out here" yelled one as they moved on down the hall...
