Newscast Media WASHINGTONYesterday, Newscast Media reported that President Barack Obama had deployed troops to Uganda to search for warlord Joseph Kony. We raised issues questioning the timing of deployment to the Great Lakes.


It appears the article got the White House's attention, and Obama this morning has submitted a supplemental report to the Speaker of the House, explaining why he is doing what he is doing.


"As I previously reported, U.S. forces will not themselves engage in Lord's Resistance Army forces unless necessary in self-defense.  This deployment is in furtherance of the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States, including the policy expressed in the Lord's Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2008, Public Law 111-172, enacted May 2010.


"I have approved this deployment pursuant to my constitutional authority to conduct U.S. foreign relations and as Commander in Chief and Chief Executive.

"I am making this supplemental report as part of my efforts to keep the Congress fully informed, consistent with the War Powers Resolution (Public Law 93-148)," Obama wrote. "I appreciate the support of the Congress in this matter," he added.
