Andrew Card, US White House Chief of Staff, said Saddam Hussein was dead Wednesday when he hosted the first edition of "Ask the White House", an online interactive forum.
Question: Is there any new information on the location of Saddam Hussein? And can the war be deemed successful in terms of eliminating the security threat to the United States and other countries if Saddam is not killed or captured?
Answer: He is not likely to be in Quincy, Braintree, or my home-town of Holbrook. I think he is dead. The good news is that his regime is no longer a threat to the people of Iraq nor to the US or our allies.
