Ultimatum rejected

Odai Hussein, Saddam Hussein's eldest son, echoed the official Iraqi government reaction to President Bush's demand that Saddam and his family leave Iraq within 48 hours by stating that it should be Bush who departs.

Odai Hussein said that Bush was "unstable" and that the U.S. leader "should give up power in America with his family." He also warned that a U.S.-led attack will force Iraq to broaden the war against the United States.
