  Possible death of Saddam Hussein: Definition and Links by Encyclopedian.com - All about Possible death of Saddam ...
The death of Saddam Hussein was reported as a strong possibility by various Western analysts and officials, after a bombing attack on Baghdad at the start of the 2003 Iraq War, and subsequently after a second attempt in the closing days of the war.
Regardless of whether Hussein had in fact been killed, attempts by both sides (Iraqi, as well as its Coalition opponents) to convince the Iraqi people that he was alive or dead were part of the "psychological warfare" or "war propaganda".
Rumours of the death of Hussein can be compared to similar rumours of the death of Osama bin Laden during the 2001 Afghanistan war.
