Authorization for Use of United States Armed Forces in Somalia Resolution - Authorizes the President to deploy U.S. armed forces to participate in UNOSOM II (the international United Nations peacekeeping force in Somalia).
Expresses the sense of the Congress that: (1) the President should ensure that the transition from UNITAF (the Unified Task Force established pursuant to United Nations Security Council Resolution 794 which authorized humanitarian relief in Somalia) to UNOSOM II occurs no later than May 1, 1993; (2) the United Nations should foster the establishment of competent local authorities in Somalia and the size of UNOSOM II should be reduced as quickly as the situation will permit; and (3) costs incurred by the United States in connection with UNITAF and UNISOM II are reimbursed to the maximum extent possible by the United Nations and the international community.
Declares that all U.S. armed forces should be withdrawn from Somalia within six months of the date of enactment of this resolution.
Directs the President to report to the Congress at least once every two months until two months after all U.S. armed forces have been withdrawn from Somalia on developments related to Somalia.
