As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

So it weren't US troops who found Saddam?
Not that it plays a role, but all reports had left the idea that US troops have found Saddam because of the fabulous work of US intelligence. I even thought the soldiers would get the reward for Saddams head.
But as several sources report now, Saddam was given over to the Kurds by one of his Clan/ Family or so and they handed him to the US troops.
Okay, I know what several people will say now - who cares who caught him what counts is that he's captured.
Hmm, this is just in parts correct, because it is indeed important how he was captured. Especially when officials let the idea come up it was different. I don't say they lied, that will others do who know the speech by word, but they let the impression come that it happened the way that american and UK intelligence had given the directions and the US troops went there and got him.
It's said it was the British Sunday Express and of course Al Jazeera jumps on it. If it were only Al Jazeera I'd have my doubts but with a British source behind it sounds pretty serious.
