U.S. Intelligence sources believe Saddam Hussein and other leading Iraqi leaders may have been inside the compound targeted by the U.S. cruise missile attacks.
Unidentified sources report medical attention was summoned to the compound after cruise missiles and a bunker-busting bomb struck the area. There is no confirmed evidence yet that Saddam or his sons were wounded or killed.
Officials say it appears Iraq's military structure is in disarray and that no one appears to have been in overall command of Iraqi military operation since the strike. U.S. Officials say if Saddam has not been killed or wounded maybe the attack has weakened his trust in his inner circle.
Following a briefing for members of the U.S. House of Representatives Thursday night, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says the U.S. is talking with Iraqis about the possibility of surrender or a coup against Saddam Hussein.
