There was no immediate reaction from Washington. The ex-minister, dubbed "Comical Ali" for proclaiming the defeat of U.S. forces even as they moved into Baghdad, had been hiding out at a relative's house watching satellite TV, but was caught on Monday night, the paper said in a report from Baghdad. "He has some serious talking to do ... this time," a "senior coalition source" was quoted as saying. There was no independent confirmation of the story and no other sourcing.

How much do you want to bet they end up putting him on stage telling jokes to the troops? The last I heard the US didn't even consider him important enough to arrest.

"Caught"? Bull; didn't he try to give himself up repeatedly and was sent away with parting words along the lines of "We don't want you."?
