Another nab in Iraq, with steely knives and oily guns

This NY Times article recounts how our guys nabbed one of Saddam’s "lifelong bodyguards;" he had to be overpowered. They also got documents, etc. It seems to me that getting Saddam’s bodyguards (and about a dozen were nabbed just before we got Saddam’s sons) might be more important than anything else in our search for Saddam. It indicates to me that we really are getting ever closer to finding him. Also note the comment of the Colonel in charge of the operation as he described that the bodyguard struggled to get free. Was he surprised? His answer: "Were we surprised? He’s a bodyguard. That’s why we went in with our steely knives and oily guns." This well-spoken Colonel has a sense of humor.
