    Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider al-Abadi, on Saturday said that the Iraqi security forces captured a leading figure in Saddam Hussein’s Baath party in an operation based on intelligence reports. Al-Abadi said this in his address to a ceremony in Baghdad for the 146th anniversary of the Iraqi press. “The security forces managed to arrest the terrorist Abdul Karim al-Sadoun by the efforts of the Iraqi intelligence,” Abadi said. Abadi did not give further details about how or where the arrest took place, saying he preferred an official statement to declare the details later as interrogation was still underway. Al-Sadoun was...

    U.S. drops top Iraqi general from most-wanted list SPECIAL TO WORLD TRIBUNE.COMThursday, April 24, 2003 The United States has left out the commander of President Saddam Hussein's elite Republican Guard from a list of most wanted Iraqis. Gen. Maher Sufian does not appear on the U.S. list of 55 most wanted Iraqis. Sufian was commander of the six Republican Guard units responsible for the defense of Baghdad. The absence of Sufian from the U.S. list has sparked claims that the Republican Guard commander struck a deal with the U.S.-led coalition. Arab diplomatic sources said Sufian is believed to have...

    Deck of Cards It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn't been heard. The young soldier knew it was The Sabbath, Gods holy day As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk. Just then an army sergeant came in and said, "Why aren't you with the rest of the platoon?" The soldier replied, "I thought I would stay behind and spend some time with the Lord." The sergeant said, "Looks to me like you're going to play cards." The...
  • Anti-Bush book targets kids: 'No, George! No' features colorful illustrations, 'Truth Fairy'

    A new book written in a youthful format is being used by parents to teach their children the "truth" about President Bush, says the author. "No, George! No: The Re-parenting of George W. Bush" uses the "Truth Fairy" to slam the president. Authored by Kathy Eder, who describes herself as "a social justice and morality teacher," the hardbound looks like a children's book with colorful illustrations. "What I'm finding is that records stores and comic book stores are most receptive to the book," Eder said in a statement. "Sure, the book is selling in some independent bookstores, but the book...
  • (Posted 2/29/04) Osama arrested in secret: report (Source: Could it be Moby?)

    THE Pentagon has denied any knowledge of Osama bin Laden's "arrest" after an Iranian report that he has been held for some time. The external Pashto-language service of Iranian state radio quoted an "informed source". It suggested bin Laden had been detained "some time ago", but the news was being kept secret and was likely to be announced later in the year to boost US President George W. Bush's re-election chances. A Pentagon Central Command spokesman in Tampa, Florida, said: "I have no reports on us capturing OBL, Osama bin Laden. We don't have anything on that." The Iranian report...

    A special Iraqi police unit arrested a senior Baath Party leader on the U.S. military's most-wanted list during a raid Sunday on his home in a Baghdad suburb. The capture of Mohammed Zimam Abdul Razaq leaves only 10 top figures still at large from the list of 55 issued after the Saddam Hussein regime fell. Abdul Razaq was No. 41, and the four of spades in the military's "deck of cards" of top fugitives. Deputy Interior Minister Ahmed Kadhum Ibrahim touted the arrest as evidence that the still-rebuilding Iraqi police force "can be depended upon in the fight against terrorism"...

They feature a wide variety of individuals including Bush administration figures, lawmakers, the Spanish and Italian prime ministers and conservative American media personalities such as Rush Limbaugh and Bill O' Reilly. Notably, the card sequence begins...

    For any Russian confused about the names and career highlights of the Bush Administration, help went on sale on Thursday. The "United Cards of America", Russia's answer to the US military's "Iraqi most-wanted" playing cards, features a 36-card round-up of key figures in Washington. From George Bush ("USA President since 2001, convinced that God has a plan for him") to the Federal Reserve chairman, Alan Greenspan ("second-most powerful man in the world"), and Defence Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld ("the face of struggle with terrorism"), the cards are an attempt to teach Russians that what happens on the Volga is increasingly determined...

A senior administration official said the US is "90% to 95% certain" that Saddam's sons were among the dead....

    NewsMax is already hearing that several Hollywood stars are just furious with our latest "Deck of Weasels" -- our playing and information cards that expose the anti Americanism of the political world and Hollywood. One mega star's producer told us late last week that "Everyone is talking about it, and a lot of people are worried." Worried about what? Well, the crazed liberals that make up Tinseltown's elite thought the "Bush war" against Iraq was truly going to be a disaster -- and that they would be vindicated. Sorry, Charlie, it didn't work out that way, did it? Now the...
