Sisters to claim bodies of Hussein brothers

The two daughters of Saddam Hussein in exile in Jordan, will claim the bodies of their brothers, Udey and Qusay, it is being reported. One of the daughters also said that the fall of Baghdad was a "great shock" and blamed it on the betrayal by associates of the deposed tyrant (although she probably said leader). The daughters are in Jordan.

James Taranto had the best line on this one when it was reported that the coalition was going to hold the bodies until a family member could claim them: "Watch out Sadam, I think this is a trap..."

If weren’t so civilized we would probably kill the daughters when they showed up, so that Saddam would know that all his seed had perished.
