Abstract:

The Bush Administration is in the process of building new embassy facilities in Baghdad. An emergency supplemental appropriation H.R. 1268P.L. 109-13, which included 592 million for embassy construction, was signed into law on May 11, 2005. According to the Department of State, this funding is all that is needed for construction of the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. Completion of the embassy is expected by the end of the 2007 summer. Congress provided an additional 1,327.3 million within the FY2006 emergency supplemental appropriation P.L. 109-234, signed June 15, 2006 for mission operations and reconstruction team support in Iraq. In addition, the Presidents FY2007 budget request includes 65 million for regular operations. This report discusses reestablishing normal diplomatic ties with Iraq and setting up the new embassy facilities and regional teams. It will be updated as information becomes available.
