"I am the President of Iraq and I am willing to negotiate."
An Army officer says Saddam Hussein spoke those words as he was captured over the weekend.
This morning Saddam faces more questions from U-S interrogators.
It WAS hoped that his capture would bring an end to the deadly attacks in Iraq, but this morning there's more violence.
Two suicide bombings today in Baghdad have killed eight Iraqi policemen, and injured 14 others.
Aleen Sirgany joins us now from Washington with the latest.

SADDAM HUSSEIN MAY BE IN CUSTODY BUT THE INSURGENCY CONTINUES. THIS MORNING BOMBS WENT OFF AT TWO POLICE STATIONS IN THE BAGHDAD AREA... KILLING AROUND A DOZEN PEOPLE. ON SUNDAY 17 DIED WHEN ANOTHER POLICE STATION WAS TARGETTED.

"we got the big fish, but there's a million little fish, there's little fish everywhere." :05
U-S INTERROGATORS HAVE REPORTEDLY ALREADY ASKED SADDAM ABOUT HIS ROLE IN THE ONGOING ATTACKS. THE FORMER DICTATOR IS ALSO BEING DRILLED ABOUT WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION BUT SO FAR U-S OFFICIALS SAY HE HAS BEEN UNCOOPERATIVE. AND WHILE CERTAIN TACTICS MAY LOOSEN SADDAM'S TONGUE... MILITARY LEADERS SAY EVERYTHING IS BEING DONE BY THE BOOK.

THE SEARCH FOR SADDAM ENDED WHEN SOLDIERS FOUND HIM SATURDAY IN A COFFIN-SIZED BUNKER OUTSIDE HIS HOMETOWN OF TIKRIT. THERE ARE REPORTS HE HAS TAKEN OUT OF THE COUNTRY. THE QUESTION NOW: HOW TO PUNISH HIM?. ONE OPTION WOULD BE AN INTERNATIONAL COURT BUT IRAQ'S GOVERNING COUNCIL INSISTS HE WILL FACE A PUBLIC TRIAL IN IRAQ.

Mother Nature must not be a "Survivor" fan. Many viewers were unable to see the season finale last night because of the winter weather. As it goes, A-E-P lost all commercial power on top of Poor Mountain because of ice.
