  •  Not on a surgical decapitation strike (none)
    They were attacking early specifically to go after Saddam in his bunker with cruise missiles and bunker-busters.They wanted to kill Saddam as the first strike of the war and have the leaderless forces of Iraq surrender as a result of Saddam getting killed.

    If Saddam gets word one that they know what bunker he's in and it's targeted, Saddam moves to safety.

    This is a state secret of the highest order. "Location of Pacific fleet N of Midway Island before Battle of Midway" type of state secret. "D-Day is June 6th and the target is Normandy, not Calais" type of state secret. Revealing these type of secrets is like right there with Benedict Arnold handing the British the keys to West Point. HIGH TREASON.
