The US military is starting to distribute playing cards printed with the faces of the top members of the Iraqi leadership it wishes to capture. Distributing playing card is not unusual. Somewhere I have some that where made for identifying tanks and aircraft.

But anyway this is how the house of cards breaks down in regards to Saddams regime.

Ace of spades: Saddam Hussein, president.

King of spades: Ali Hassan al-Majid, presidential adviser/Revolutionary Command Council member.

Queens of spades: Muhammad Hamza Zubaydi, retired RCC member.

Jack of spades: Ibrahim Ahmad Abd al-Sattar Muhammad, Iraqi armed forces chief of staff.

Two of diamonds, Adil Abdallah Mahdi, Baath Party regional command chairman.

Ace of hearts: Odai Hussein, Saddam's son.

King of hearts: Hami Abd al-Latif Tilfah, special security organization.

Queen of hearts: Barzan Abd al-Ghafur Sulayman Majid, Special Republican Guard commander.

Jack of hearts: Rafi Abd al-Latif Tilfah, director of general security.

Eight of hearts: Sultan Hashim Ahmad, minister of defense.

Seven of hearts: Zuhayr Talib Abd al-Sattar, director of military intelligence.

Six of hearts: Muhammad Mahdi, minister of trade.

Five of hearts: Huda Salih Mahdi Ammash, weapons of mass destruction scientist.

Four of hearts: Humman Abd al-Khaliq Abd, minister of higher education and scientific research.

Three of hearts: Fadil Mahmud Gharib, Baath Party regional command chairman.

The reporter from Sky News this morning asked the question, "Will the former Iraqi Minister of Information known as Baghdad Bob be included since every deck needs a joker?" or something to that effect.

The U.S. military definately used their noodles on this one. What better way to ingrain the faces of the folks we are looking for than to put them on adult "flash cards".
