"...party in prison; perhaps you could get their permission? It would be legal right? ..."
I don't think so, there is currently no longer any Iraqi government... But if westrictly think about international law, i have no idea? Is there any precedent in this case?
"If permission was given by Saddam's people who are in U.S. custody would it be legal? "
Nope, don't think so either.
"Would it make Canada the laughing stock of the world? "
If Jay Garner creates an interim government, his team will be the official government, and then i would not see any problem with this... But at the current state of affairs, there is still not any form of government. I'm not saying no to DART, I'm saying no to the DART deployment as long as there is no government!
