Saddam Foiled By His Wife?

I realize that's it's a tabloid, but this Sunday Times article reports that Saddam's second wife Samira was in touch with him by phone in the weeks before his capture, and the tracking of those calls by the Mossad contributed to his ultimate apprehension. Seems she wanted more money. Take it with a grain of salt. It's compelling reading even if it's unconfirmed reporting. (via Drudge)

And here's the account that it was a Kurdish military intelligence unit that tipped the U.S. military to Saddam's whereabouts.
