Abstract:

The Clinton Administration has repeatedly threatened the introduction of United States forces into Haiti to restore the legitimate government of exiled President Jean Bertrand Aristide. As the United States military is being charged to conduct increasingly non-traditional and irregular missions around the world, it is useful to view these unique operations from a historical perspective and learn from previous commanders and policy-makers alike. An earlier military intervention in Haiti reviews the successes and shortcomings of previous operations in that country. In addition this study will highlight lessons learned and make recommendations for any operational commander tasked with such a mission in the future.
