Hi, Just before the first attacks started, there was a rumour reported on CBC that Tariq Aziz was shot trying to flee Baghdad. I know rumours run rampant in such times but it's really fishy how I've heard NOTHING more about it. Does anybody know if any such thing happened?

Thanks for reminding me of that. We are compiling a list of outright lies, diliberate misinformation and uncofirmed reports. Aziz, almost immediatly after that report was made was questioned by reporters and quoted as saying: "Reports of my demise are premature."
He also made a major policy speech on the 24th. I posted the speech here. I think I'll post that as deliberate information (although it is arguably an unconfirmed report depending on how you spin it.)
