Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
The commander of U-S forces in Iraq declares that Saddam Hussein's regime is over.
But General Tommy Franks says American troops will stay in Iraq until a free government is in place.
The troops are also receiving a deck of cards-- but they're not for a game.
The deck contains pictures of the most- wanted figures in the Iraqi regime.
The ace of spaces is Saddam himself.
Teri Okita joins us now with more on that, plus the latest on the fighting.

A NEW ORDER FORBIDS TROOPS TO USE DEADLY FORCE TO PREVENT LOOTING. AT THIS MORNING'S BRIEFING, U-S CENTRAL COMMAND ALSO DISPLAYED 55-CARDS LISTING THE "MOST WANTED" IRAQI LEADERS ... INCLUDING, OF COURSE, SADDAM HUSSEIN. THEY SAY THESE MOST WANTED MEN MAY BE PURSUED, CAPTURED, OR KILLED ... SOMETHING THE COMMANDER OF THIS WAR SAID WON'T BE EASY.
