The Iraqi president did not name people wanted by Iraq for links with the insurgency and the former Saddam era government, but Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, Saddam’s deputy in the Revolutionary Command Council, which functioned as both executive and legislature, figures high on the list.
Douri is suspected of directing rebels inside Iraq.
Izzy was chosen the new Baathist leader of Iraq by default after Saddam’s death.
