March 20th- The War Begins
US Airforce F-117
In the evening of March 20th a full day before the scheduled beginning of the attack on Iraq the CIA reported that it was nearly certain that they had located Saddam Hussein and his two sons at a place called Dora Farms. It was believed that they were in an underground bunker at the site. A pair of F-117 Sealth fighters carring EGBU-27 2,000 pound bunker busting bombs were sent to the target. They successfully attacked the target. It was later determined that neither Hussein nor his friends were the Dora Farms..
