NUMBER 47 ON YOUR SCORECARD:

NUMBER 47 ON YOUR SCORECARD: “The former Iraqi oil minister, Amir Rashid Muhammad al-Ubaydi, has surrendered to the U.S.-led coalition forces, the U.S. Central Command said”, according to AP, who reports that Al-Ubaydi was listed as Number 47 on the coalition’s list of the 55 most-wanted officials from the Saddam Hussein regime, and was denominated as the six of spades in the deck of cards issued to coalition forces to identify top regime members.

Awww–and it was Saddam’s birthday today, too. Sorry old chap!
