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.
