DEBKAfile says so, and says some top Iraqi leaders -- including Tareq Aziz -- are defecting. Take it with a grain of salt, but the link is:

On a side note, did you knowCaptain Morgan

that Aziz is actually a Christian? He's the only one in Saddam's inner circle who isn't Muslim. I hope he has defected and provides some useful and accurate info.

Conventional news sources have validated just about everything Debka has been reporting lately within 2-3 days or so, so I'd say yes. I really think our media is lame.
Threre are also rumors Aziz was killedAlpedhuez55

I think Fox was reporting on that foreign news agencies were reporting the defection and that he is in Turkey. There are also reumors he has been killed though:

He could save a lot of lives on both sides. I would think he would have some information that the US could use. Though I do not know if he was given that much access and or if he is just a puppet being told what to say by Saddam.
