Iraq's interim government....

....is getting serious about putting an end to the violence.
The Iraqi Interim Government recently announced warrants for the arrest of 29 individuals who are either members of the Former Regime or part of the Abu Mus'ab al-Zarqawi terrorist network. These individuals are responsible for funding and coordinating terrorist operations inside Iraq in an attempt to disrupt the country's march toward democracy and an autonomous government.

Rewards for information leading to the arrest of these individuals range from $25 million to $50,000. These individuals are believed to be located either inside Iraq or within neighboring countries.

Anyone with information regarding the location of these individuals is encouraged to call United States Central Command Headquarters at (813) 827-4468 or (813) 827-4469.
Here's the first on a long list.
'Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri- As former Vice Chairman of the Revolutionary Command Council, 'Izzat Ibrahim Al-Duri was part of the inner circle and very close to Saddam. Al-Duri is believed to be the current leader of the New Regional Command and New Ba'ath Party. As such, Al-Duri provides guidance, financial support and coordination of the Former Regime insurgency. His financial support for the insurgency, derived from the expropriated wealth of Iraq, continues to facilitate attacks against coalition forces, the Interim Iraqi Government, Iraqi National Guard, the Iraqi Police and the Iraqi people. As a member of the former Saddam regime, 'Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri has been designated under United Nations Security Counsel Resolution 1483 for stealing assets from the Iraqi people. Under this United Nations Security Counsel resolution all member nations must freeze any funds, other financial assets or economic resources associated with 'Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri and immediately return them to the Iraqi people. Any of these assets recovered from al Duri will be immediately dedicated to the reconstruction of Iraq. Additionally, the Multi National Forces in Iraq are offering a reward of $10 million for information leading to the capture of Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri.
Do you think there's anyone in Syria who could use an extra $10 million?
