Why has Microsoft granted Saddam Hussein's son a .NET passport?

Why has Microsoft granted Saddam Hussein's son a .NET passport? A Microsoft representative would not comment on the issuance of a passport to the murderer, rapist, torturer and smuggler, but said Microsoft complies with all trade laws. Looks like it's time for Iraq to switch to Linux. Also, Yahoo is likely in violation of U.S. trade sanctions against Iraq by providing him with a free email account. You can show your support for 38-year-old Uday by emailing him at udaysaddamhussein@yahoo.com. What next? Cancel the accounts of all criminals?

And are they using a registered copy of Front Page? (View source). I can see it now, if no WMDs are found they decide to really crack down on piracy "..for over 10 years Saddam has wilfully violated end user licence agreements, he must be stopped!..."

In that case, I wonder if Popcap is in violation because Uday played Mah Jongg, or if IMDB is in violation because he looked up Vin Diesel, or if MeFi is in violation because it provides free interesting links, or if the U.S. Congress website is in violation because it allows free lookups of congressional records....

He has a free email account? This means Iraq has access to the same penis-enhancement technology that we do. Worse yet, Saddam could be making money from home right now!
