breakin on Fox now too, time to update the Deck of Cards list!!!

BAGHDAD, Iraq — Saddam Hussein's (search) former second-in-command, Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri (search), was arrested in northern Iraq, an Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesman told al-Hurra television.

Saleh Sarhan said al-Douri was captured while in a clinic where he was receiving medical treatment.

"There was a major operation around Tikrit (search) and al-Dour and American forces supported by Iraqi civil defense corps members were able to capture Izzat al-Douri," he told the U.S. government-funded Arabic-language station in a live telephone interview.

The U.S. military said it had no immediate comment on the report.

With all due respect to those in Florida, can just one network give FIVE FREAKIN MINUTES to break away from their soaked reporters flapping in the breeze to give this announcement proper Kudos.
This guy was the BIG FISH still swimming the Baathist scum pond. Great job troops!

You dummy! It's mocking the kooky conspiracy leftists.

Plus after posting several thousand fiercely pro-Bush, pro-GOP posts, I'm now a troll? Wow, what a deep, deep cover agent. :)

I wonder if we're going to be hearing celebratory gunfire outside the wire shortly?

I could be wrong... since he was kept at an "undisclosed location", it could Mrs. Cheney who's glad to get him out of the house.

Dummy? I'm sorry that I didn't know your handle. You could post a /sarcasm and make the same point. If you look like a troll, you'll get noticed. there are lots of disruptors as you well know...

Glad you're not a kook, but calling me a dummy seems a bit excessive.

Speaking as one from Florida, and in Florida, I have had my fill of reporters standing out in the wind and rain talking about the wind and rain! Gimme a break. Everyone knows hurricanes have lots of wind and rain, where's the news value of talking about it when one is sitting right on top of you. One of the roving meteorologists, the Weather Channel I believe, was out in the wind and rain yesterday talking about how dangerous it is to be out in the wind and rain and she was struck by a piece of flying debris! Had to laugh! When last seen she was applying ice to the injury and enroute to have it treated.

Islamist monsters in Chechnya and capturing the VP have been completely lost in the shuffle. Two "hugh" stories.
