The US has caught Saddam's brother in law. He was disguised as a peasant...just like Saddam probably is now. Saddam must feel a little uncomfortable regarding this news.

US forces have arrested Arshad Yassin, a brother-in-law of Saddam Hussein who was also his personal helicopter pilot and a senior figure in his close protection force until the early 1990s, a high ranking Iraqi police officer said today.

Yassin, who held the rank of airforce lieutenant general, and another officer of the protection force of the former president, Major Radman Ali Al-Huraimus were arrested yesterday, in a village 40km south of the northern oil city of Kirkuk, the officer said.

He said a US force was airlifted to the village and stormed the house where the two were hiding, disguised as peasants.
