Saddam’s capture contrasts with the Mosul raid that led to the death of his sons, launched on the basis of a tip-off.
This is not much of a surprise; Saddam reportedly deputized Duri to distribute cash and activate loyalist cells in the days after the war, while he himself concentrated his efforts on staying alive and out of custody.

 Grotian Moment Blog | Issue #39: The Significance of the Testimony of Tariq Aziz
First, Saddam’s disproportionate response to Dujail (destroying the houses, burning down the orchards, rounding up 399 people including young children) suggests that his intent was to retaliate against the town and use it as an example to deter future acts of insurgency, rather than simply to route out the terrorists involved in the assassination plot.
While describing the testimony of Tariq Aziz as the likely “high watermark” of Saddam Hussein’s defence, Scharf goes on to argue that there are “crucial distinctions” between the supposedly occasional and uncharacteristic lapses of the American military and what he calls “Saddam’s disproportionate response” to the assassination attempt in Dujail.
Saddam Hussein’s forces did not go on the rampage in Dujail, bomb the town to bits killing around 6,000 people, or turn its ruined remains into a virtual prison camp as the American military did in Falluja.
