Since a verb using a sentence as object creates a new sentence, I think 
it's very clear that such a SAO-sentence can be the SAO in another sentence.

{targh HoH vav DaneH 'e' vIyaj net Sov.}
One knows that I understand you want your father to kill the targ.

[[[[targh HoH vav] DaneH] 'e' vIyaj] net Sov.]
[[[[the father kills the targ] you want that] I understand that] one 
knows it]
