#3221: Washington Office on Haiti 1995 report on Haiti Rice Corp: Russell asks

From:  <avrussell@hotmail.com>

Personally, I'm curious as to how legal it is for one man -- one powerful 
man mind you, but one man nonetheless -- can have a mandate to make such an 
important decision, without even consulting his own foreign relations 
committee.  Although I'm not a lawyer, there's got to be some grounds for 
legal action on the basis of overstepping clear lines of separation of power 
between the executive and the legislative branches of government.  Couldn't 
there be a legitimate court case brought against the decision at the supreme 
court level?  Any lawyers care to comment?
