THE WHITE HOUSE,
Washington, March 2, 2004.
Hon. J. DENNIS HASTERT,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
DEAR MR. SPEAKER: In my report to the Congress of February 25,
2004, I provided information on the deployment of combat-equipped
U.S. Armed Forces to Haiti. I am providing this additional report,
consistent with the War Powers Resolution, to help ensure that the
Congress is kept fully informed on U.S. military activities in Haiti.
On February 29, 2004, approximately 200 additional U.S. com-
bat-equipped, military personnel from the U.S. Joint Forces Com-
mand deployed to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to secure key facilities, to
facilitate the continued repatriation of Haitian migrants, to help
create conditions in the capital for the anticipated arrival of the
Multinational Interim Force, to protect American citizens as may
be required, and for other purposes consistent with United Nations
Security Council Resolution 1529 (2004). I anticipate additional
combat-equipped military personnel will be deployed to Haiti until
the situation in Haiti stabilizes. The forces that the United States
deployed and continues to deploy will be part of the Multinational
Interim Force.
The United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Reso-
lution 1529 on February 29, 2004. It authorized the deployment of
a Multinational Interim Force to contribute to a more secure and
more stable environment in the Haitian capital and elsewhere, to
facilitate the provision of humanitarian assistance and the access
of humanitarian aid workers to the Haitian people, and for other
purposes.
It is anticipated U.S. forces will redeploy when the Multinational
Interim Force has transitioned to a follow-on United Nations sta-
bilization force.
I have taken this action pursuant to my constitutional authority
to conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and
Chief Executive. I am providing this report as part of my efforts
to keep the Congress informed, consistent with the War Powers
Resolution.
Sincerely,
GEORGE W. BUSH.
