Abstract:

This report summarizes the workshop discussions and analyzes the issues that arose. It does not pretend to be the definitive statement on Operation Uphold Democracy. The rapporteurs have adhered to the discussion and observations of workshop participants. The report seeks to reflect those individuals insights into the specific problems of civilian-military and interagency planning as they relate to the issues of command and control. Chapter 2 develops the chronology of the overall operation with a time line displaying the relationship between political events and the planning process. Chapter 3 analyzes what went right in the operation and what contributed to success. Chapter 4 is an analysis of the issues that arose between DoD and the other organizations involved, and of the issues that arose between the strategic, operational, and tactical levels within and outside DoD. Policy and organizational issues are examined, as well as issues perceived as unique to the Haiti operation. Lessons learned are summarized in the final chapter.
