41. Favorable concessions from the US Military
If you make the boss look good, good things happen to you.

If they would have just shot the SOB, or pulled his ass out of wherever he was and frog marched him into Paul Bremer's office, the Kurds would have received all the credit for the removal of Saddam but the US wouldn't have been seen as the savior of the Iraqi people. But letting the US catch the bastard makes us look like heroes.

When the US finally decides to give Iraq an oil company of its own, Kurds will be running it because, after all, the Sunnis and Shia didn't do anything to round up Saddam!
