RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the continued deployment of United States military support personnel advising regional forces working toward the apprehension of Joseph Kony is both necessary and appropriate.

Whereas the Lord’s Resistance Army, led by Joseph Kony, has kidnapped, brutalized, tortured, raped, and murdered tens of thousands of civilians in Central Africa for more than 25 years;

Whereas the United States has supported military efforts by local militaries to topple the Lord’s Resistance Army and capture Joseph Kony;

Whereas, on May 24, 2010, the President of the United States signed the Lord’s Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act of 2009;

Whereas, on October 12, 2011, the President of the United States deployed military support personnel to Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo; and

Whereas recently there has been pressure placed on the President of the United States to consider the withdrawal of deployed military support personnel to Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the continued deployment of United States military support personnel advising regional forces working toward the apprehension of Joseph Kony is both necessary and appropriate.
