Just trying to clarify....  Does this mean Iraq is totally out from under Chapter 7 sanctions?  Because I understand this to mean that they are only released from the Chapter 7 sanctions that apply to the "oil for food" program.  Can someone clarify if there are still some other aspects of Chapter 7 sanctions that are still held against Iraq?  I thought there were several minor issues/areas (this being one of them), but maybe I'm wrong.  Anyone?????
