    INTELLIGENCE experts who have watched Abdul Aziz al-Muqrin’s rise in al-Qaeda’s ranks believe his thirst for self publicity is matched only by his desire to spill more Western blood. Saudi Arabia’s most wanted terrorist knew his threat on video to execute his American hostage would be screened worldwide and enhance his own reputation among militant followers in the Kingdom. Former comrades now in US custody have described how this slightly built, high school drop-out was determined to establish himself as the most ruthless of al-Qaeda’s new generation of leaders. In the four months since he took control of al-Qaeda’s operations...

But most important to American forces, he knew Saddam's whereabouts at any given moment. And last Saturday night, after his sudden capture and four hours of interrogation, he...

However, why isn't Arik Sharon permitted to play under these same house rules in the World Casino, using his own deck of Palestinian cards?
