Uday-Qusay death photos HERE
US credibility prob? You bet. Photos called "purported" by CNN, other news agencies used careful language about whether photos are authentic. Later in the day, many news reports dropped the qualifiers and just said they are really photos of the really-dead Hussein boys.

Interview with Dead Husseins Could Bring Closure, U.S. Hopes

In a tape broadcast last night by the al-Jazeera television network, Saddam Hussein's sons Qusay and Uday acknowledged for a worldwide television audience that they are, in fact, dead, a move that many in the White House and at the Pentagon hoped would bring much-needed closure.

In the three-minute interview, a solemn-looking Qusay is the first to speak, saying simply, "I'm not going to sugarcoat this: we're dead, folks." Uday, who looks on silently for most of the interview, congratulates U.S. forces on killing him, but adds that he and his brother plan to "continue to speak out on the issues that matter to the Iraqi people." He also asks that "someone turn down the ---- heat here."

Interim Iraqi administrator L. Paul Bremer said that seeing the two dead Hussein brothers admit that they are dead on television could help the Iraqi people move on: "Many Iraqis already knew Qusay and Uday were dead, but it's still great for people to hear it straight from the horse's mouth."

He cautioned that the dead brothers' stated intention of continuing to speak out in the future served "no constructive purpose."
"If Qusay and Uday continue to appear on television making statements even though they've already confirmed that they're dead, that's at best confusing and at worst unhelpful," Mr. Bremer warned.

In a related story, 40,000 unemployed look-alikes of Qusay and Uday rioted today outside the northern city of Tikrit, demanding job retraining, full health benefits and a shave.
