Three of diamonds (#48) - Muhsin Khadr al-Khafaji. Captured on February 7.

Four of spades (#41) - Muhammad Zimam abd al-Razzaq al-Sadun.

The U.S. Central Command's list of the "Iraqi 55 Most Wanted" is starting to look like "Ten Little Ba'athists" to paraphrase the title of Agatha Christie's novel, Ten Little Indians (a.k.a. And Then There Were None).

Look at this picture, shortly after the arrest. What's up with the head gear? He doesn't look too happy... Commissar / Natasha @ the Politburo Diktat are not happy campers... ;) [Editor: Commissar, maybe you should get your hands on "The House of Cards: Deck of Bush"...]

In the news:
Here is an excerpt from an interview (by Sean Dodson) with Jeremy Botter ("Letters from Iraq"):

"I'm a medic with Apache Troop of the 1-10 Cavalry. Our mission is to do the things that no other unit wants to do or can do. Our unit has been instrumental in capturing 10 of the people on the Iraqi Most Wanted playing cards, including Saddam Hussein." (The Guardian, 01/22/04.)
