My director let me thumb through his Iraqi Most-Wanted playing cards today. He ordered them off a Web site and passed the URL along to me. These cards are from United States Playing Cards, the real company that distributed the decks to the troops, not some trademark-infringing copy-cat.
They even have a deck of Operation Iraqi Freedom U.S. Military Heroes featuring George W. Bush as the ace of spades, not the king of hearts. I wonder how similar it is to the Bush Regime Playing Cards.
And for the record, the decks have 52 playing cards, like a normal deck. There might be 55 cards total in the pack, but there are three extra cards that aren’t playing cards. Some news reports made it sound like there are 55 playing cards: three more than a normal deck.
I can’t wait to see which side wins the poker match!
