Approval by the defense secretary "is not required to conduct uninterrupted pursuit and engagement of positively identified former regime military aircraft, terrorist and senior [former] military leadership and senior nonmilitary elements of former Iraqi regime command and control across international borders," the document said.

It stated that the American commander engaged in the pursuit, however, should consult with top commanders in Baghdad, "time permitting."

It is no wonder there are forces from Iran and Syria entering into Iraq. These dont sound like very good policies to me. What if they ventured off into Iran and were confronted by the Iranian military? Could that spark a war between us? This just does not sound like a good idea whatsoever.
