Wherever he is I don't think he has to be in Iraq. Apparently some companies have their contracts sent to the Iraq embassy in Washington for official signing and returning to Iraq. That is an objecitve answer but the best I can do.
I guess what we all want to know is where the contract is. Dom, I'm still optimistic until otherwise informed. It's just a gut feeling. Dealing with Iraq must be one of the most challenging countries of all. I hear SOMO needs 9 of it's officers to sign off on every oil contract... plus the minister. Sounds almost as bad as one of our typical Canadian City Councils. The Col. gets 'A' for 'endurance'. So let's pretend the have all signed off, all the t's are crossed and the i's dotted. That leaves the final job of getting a contract signed and officially recieved and acknowledged. What could possibly go wrong with that? One has to use one's imagination I guess.
