Ace of spades? 

First reports are sometimes (often) inaccurate, but the claim is that we finally got him.

Apparently Saddam didn't put up much of a fight, and his bunker was really quite pathetic. Contrast this to the conditions under which Uday and Qusay were killed -- they were holed up in a much stronger lair, and it took a lot of fighting to kill them. Also consider that Saddam was captured in Tikrit, his hometown and the most obvious place one would search for him. I could be wrong, but I'm inclined to interpret these signs as evidence that support for Saddam is much weaker then it used to be.
