Who is Aziz Saleh Nuhmah?

Aziz Salih Nuhmah was appointed Iraqi governor of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein during the 1991 Gulf War. He is a member of the "dirty dozen", allegedly responsible for torture and murder in Iraq. Prior to the U.S. invasion in April 2003, Al-Numan was the Baath Party's regional command chair, responsible for West Baghdad. He was previously the governor of Karbala and Najaf. He was taken into custody on May 22, 2003. At the time, he was the Number 8 on the Central Command's list of the 55 most wanted Iraqis, and was the highest-ranking person on the list of 55 to have been taken into custody to that time. He was one of nine Iraqi leaders that the United States wished to see tried for either war crimes or crimes against humanity.

As of late 2006, he did not appear to have yet been indicted.

Nuhmah is the King of Diamonds in the most-wanted Iraqi playing cards.
