According to this story, #11 on the most-wanted Iraqi list has been captured. That’s the Queen of Hearts for those of you keeping score at home. Barzan Abd Al-Ghafur, listed as the Commander of the Special Republican Guard (basically the Iraqi SS) was detained today. No other details at this point. Interestingly (or not) he’s the first “face” card taken that doesn’t have a face on the card. There are two other face cards without photos.

I had posted recently that we only had six of 16 face cards, but suddenly we’re over halfway there. I guess we’ll see how this gets spun, as well. I’m guessing something along the lines of “Since many bad things happening means the President is an idiot, several good things happening must mean that it’s all a fabrication.” Must be, right?
