Tom Casey, deputy spokesman at the US State Department, said that contrary to reports, former Iraqi dictator Saddam remained in American hands. Casey said the information he had was provided by the US Embassy in Baghdad. "I don't have any more details to offer you," he told reporters at the State Department. Casey reiterated the Bush administration's view that "we think it's very important there be acountability." He said "it was up to the Iraqis" to formally request that Saddam be brought forward for execution. Asked when that might occur, Casey said, "I really don't have a timeline on this."
