If you enjoyed my previous post about Saddam's POW status, you should follow it up with a visit to this Billmon article. Apparently there are more consequences to this designation than even Juan Cole mentioned. For example, as a POW, he is supposedly entitled to keep the $750,000 that was found with him at the time of his capture. He's also entitled to receive his monthly armend forces salary (maybe $60 per month), paid by the US governement.
