24. Here's the CNN story from 1998

February 20, 1998

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A bipartisan group whose members are prominent in U.S. international policy circles called on President Clinton Friday to go beyond a military strike on Iraq and to help overthrow Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and replace his regime with a provisional government

While it's no secret the Clinton administration would welcome the removal of Hussein from power, it is against federal law for the U.S. government to assassinate a head of state.

In addition, the administration considers the proposal announced Friday as too expensive -- in military commitment and overall cost -- and too difficult to justify in international forums such as the United Nations.
