Troops leave Haiti
from The Wall Street Journal
The bulk of U.S. military forces will depart Haiti, leaving United Nations forces and civilian groups to help the country rebuild its devastated capital in the wake of January's deadly earthquake. The departure, which was agreed upon by the U.S. and Haitian governments and long anticipated, signals that "we have reached a basic level of sustainment in Haiti," said State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley in an interview. "The military played an essential short-term role, but now this is getting back to where the focus is on development, and that expertise rests in the civilian sector."
