What I do know is that a single well-placed bullet from some special agent's gun would end SH's reign just as sure as an invasion (don't look at me like that sort of thing doesn't happen). Only difference is that route wouldn't have this speculative payoff I discussed earlier.
They have discussed assassination but the problem is that Saddam goes through great lengths to protect himself against this. 6 cars leave his palace at the same time in different directions all with look-a-likes in them.
I am sure that if assassination was a viable option they would have no problem going for it, after all they have offer to let him go into exile.
