It appears that the rumors were accurate (which is a refreshing change in and of itself):
The two notorious sons of Saddam Hussein, Uday and Qusay, were killed today in an extended firefight with American forces in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, the United State military said today.
Lt. Gen. Ricardo S. Sanchez, commander of allied forces in Iraq, announced the deaths hours after a nearly three-hour attack by American soldiers destroyed a house that the two sons were seen running into.
The two men were seen exiting a car and racing into a house in the eastern part of the city around 9 a.m. and were filmed, the Kurdish officials said. The film was quickly handed over to the American military, who identified the men and surrounded the house with troops from the 101st Airborne.
The people inside responded by opening fire on the troops. United States forces retaliated, and the boom of high-powered weaponry shattered the calm of the area for three hours, said the Kurdish officials, including one eyewitness. Four bodies were found in the house, completely shattered by the assault, which included attacks by at least one helicopter gunship. Two men were arrested, the sources said.
Rot in hell, you bastards. And we’ll be sending you your dad for company soon.

Just for fun, please report all the lefty websites, politicians, or talking heads who state something to the effect of:
“This is a good development, BUT”
“I am glad they are dead, BUT”
Should be entertaining. Remember, nothing good can happen until 20 Jan 2005.
