A search didn't yield any results matching this thread so hopefully I am not duplicating things.
Is there a website that shows all 55 cards of most wanted Iraqis that is updated as one is captured, confirmed dead, escaped, etc?
I am sort of picturing a lineup of the 55 cards with either a blurb underneath them or something like a red slash through it when someone is accounted for.

The Personality Identification Playing Cards are posted on DefenseLINK (http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Apr2003/pipc10042003.html), but without any indication of status. But today the Associated Press (http://www.startribune.com/stories/1762/3845801.html) reported:12 of 55 'most wanted' are in custody
Published April 25, 2003
Twelve of the 55 wanted members of Saddam's inner circle are in custody. A 13th figure, Ali "Chemical Ali'' Hassan al-Majid is believed to have been killed in an airstrike. The Pentagon says two others on the list were believed killed but has not named them.
Arrests by coalition forces:
- No. 10 Muzahim Sa'b Hassan al-Tikriti, who headed Iraq's air defenses under Saddam. Queen of diamonds.
- No. 18 Muhammad Hamza al-Zubaydi, former member of Iraqi Revolutionary Command Council and central Euphrates regional commander. Played key role in brutal suppression of Shiite Muslim uprising of 1991. Queen of spades.
- No. 21 Gen. Zuhayr Talib Abd al-Sattar al-Naqib, former head of the Directorate of Military Intelligence. Seven of hearts.
- No. 24 Samir Abd al-Aziz al-Najim, senior figure in Saddam's Baath Party. Four of clubs.
- No. 40 Jamal Mustafa Abdallah Sultan al-Tikriti, Saddam's son-in-law and deputy head of the Tribal Affairs Office. Nine of clubs.
- No. 43 Tariq Aziz, former deputy prime minister.
- No. 45 Hikmat Mizban Ibrahim al-Azzawi, finance minister and deputy prime minister. Eight of diamonds.
- No. 48 Muhammad Mahdi al-Salih, former trade minister. Six of hearts.
- No. 51 Watban Ibrahim Hasan al-Tikriti, Saddam's half brother. Five of spades.
- No. 52 Barzan Ibrahim Hasan al-Tikriti, another half brother of Saddam. Five of clubs.
- No. 54 Abd al-Khaliq Abd al-Gafar, Iraq's minister of higher education and scientific research. Four of hearts.

I was wondering how they got 55 most wanted. Three of the cards have Iraqi titles and such rather than individuals.

I wonder just what Tariq Aziz will be charged with, if at all.
