Affirmative action for Baathists
From a Christian Science Monitor story on the attempt to de-Baathify Iraqi university faculties:

Students whose parents were Baathists automatically received extra points on exam scores. Admission forms had a spot marked “Friends of Saddam,” a bonus based on the family’s position in the party hierarchy. It could determine entry into a good school.
