THE WHITE HOUSE,
Washington, February 25, 2004.
Hon. J. DENNIS HASTERT
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
DEAR MR. SPEAKER: Increasing armed rebellion in Haiti, the lim-
ited effectiveness of the Haitian National Police, and insecurity in
Port-au-Prince brought on by increased armed pro-government
gang activity have contributed to a climate of insecurity for the
U.S. Embassy and its supporting facilities in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
These circumstances and the potential for further deterioration of
the security environment in Haiti render the safety of the U.S. Em-
bassy, its facilities, and U.S. personnel uncertain.
On February 23, 2004, a security force of approximately 55 U.S.
military personnel from the U.S. Joint Forces Command deployed
to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to augment the Embassy security forces.
Although the U.S. forces are equipped for combat, this movement
was undertaken solely for the purpose of protecting American citi-
zens and property. It is anticipated that U.S. forces will provide
this support until such time as it is determined that the security
situation has stabilized and the threat to the Embassy, its facili-
ties, and U.S. personnel has ended.
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
Resolutions.
Sincerely,
SGEORGE W. BUSH.
