One More Card Turns Up

Fourteen of the 52 are in custody now that the former Oil Minister (and husband of 'Dr. Germ') has surrendered. He was number 47 on the list of 55, and the Six of Spades. I have updated the Ba'ath Poker deck and will update the chart below later today. I have also boldfaced the captured numbers on the cross-reference chart at the bottom of that file.

I don't know what access, if any, fugitive Iraqis have to the list of 55 and the pack of cards. If they are familiar with both, I imagine that number 50 of 55, the 6 of Diamonds, must be feeling particularly nervous, now that 47, 48, 49, the other three Sixes, have been captured.
