(Pentagon-AP) -- U-S officials are again asking where Saddam Hussein is.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says it's "interesting" that Saddam "didn't show up" to read a statement on Iraqi T-V today.
Another Iraqi official read the statement, issued in Saddam's name. It called on Iraqis to fight the coalition invaders.
Rumsfeld pointed out that Saddam hasn't been seen -- at least, not live -- since a U-S missile strike on a meeting of Iraq's command and control, the night before the ground war began.
