Saddam appears on Iraqi TV, urges resistance

Saddam Hussein appeared on Iraqi TV and urged Iraqis to resist coalition forces "with what you have available."

He wore a military uniform and beret and appeared haggard. He mentioned the downing of a U.S. Apache helicopter on March 24 -- five days after the air strike that opened the war and that American officials speculated had killed or badly injured him. The new appearance seems to demonstrate that he survived. Saddam is known to use doubles, but this appeared to be the dictator himself. No U.S. analysis of the tape was immediately available.
