Ever since the military's Central Command in the Persian Gulf released its list of most wanted Iraqis in a deck of cards, web sites have been popping up selling the cards. While it can be difficult to tell if a seller is legitimate or a scam artist, one thing many potential buyers may not know is that the entire deck of cards is available in one sheet--a .pdf file--through the Central Command web site. The camoflague background for the cards is on the sheet as well. With a good quality color printer and the right card stock, anyone can print the deck at home for only the cost of materials. The Defense Department's web site also has a list of the cards, but neither CentCom nor the DoD sell the cards themselves.
