formally that "the instructions have
already been issued and the troops are
already on the move." But he declined
to answer questions about specifics.
Administration officials, though
relieved over the Iraqi announcement,
said it was too early to tell whether
Iraq actually has begun withdrawing
its troops, particularly since it was
night in Iraq. One senior official said
there were some indications early in
the day that additional forces were
moving toward the Kuwaiti border
rather than away from it.
"Because of what happened in
1990," Clinton said, referring to
Hussein's lightning attack on Kuwait
in August of that year, "this provoca-
tion requires a strong response from
the United States and the interna-
tional community. ... We will not
allow Iraq to threaten its neighbors or
intimidate the United Nations."
Officials said the administration
probably would insist that Hussein
move his forces back to a "non-threat-
ening" position, but it was not clear
whether it would set a deadline or
provide specifics on what that means.
"We are discussing the param-
eters of their future behavior" and
likely will go to the United Nations to
seek limits on aggressive Iraqi troop
movements, a senior White House
aide said last night.
Another administration official
said that U.S. ground troops would
stay in the region for some time even

forceful response to Iraqi troop
movements on the Kuwaiti border
won praise from across the political
spectrum. The buildup also elicted a
pledge from Iraq yesterday that it was
withdrawing its forces, but officials
said the troop pullback could not be
confirmed.
"I want to express my pride in
what our men and women in uniform
have done in Haiti," Clinton said in an
Oval Office address last night. "In

if Iraq withdraws its forces. But, he
added, "I don't believe the president
has any desire to keep American forces
over there any longer than necessary."
The official said the president was
determined to deter an attack or to
defend Kuwait and had not yet fo-
cused on what new restraints to try to
impose on Hussein.
White House press secretary Dee

Dee Myers said Clinton spoke by
telephone with six foreign leaders
Sunday and yesterday about the Iraq
situation and that all were supportive.
He also called former President
Bush, who led the 1991 war that drove
Iraq from Kuwait, to thank him for
supporting his actions in the current
crisis and to say Bush's prepositioning

Clinton said dangers lurked still in
Haiti and in the showdown with Iraq,
but he cited the recent visits to Wash-
ington by the presidents of the new
democracies of South Africa and Rus-
sia as evidence that "we are making
progress in building a world of greater
peace, prosperity and democracy."
The day was especially sweet for
an administration often criticized for
flipflops, indecisiveness and incon-
clusive results in troublespots across

the globe. Many commentators had
faulted the deal Clinton's envoy,
former President Carter, had negoti-
ated with Cedras because it did not
require the general to leave Haiti.
And the Iraqi crisis once again
spotlighted the unfinished business
left behind by some of Clinton's more
persistent critics, including two po-
tential presidential candidates: former
President Bush's secretary of state,
James A. Baker III, and Bush's de-
fense secretary, Dick Cheney.
"Despite many people's predic-
tions of disaster, Haiti has gone be-
yond anyone's expectations," crowed

a White House official.
"People predicted that t]
trio of Haitian military leaders
never step down. We said a

move toward peace," Rabin vowed.
Christopher called on Palestine
Liberation Organization Chairman
Yasser Arafat to strongly condemn
the attack.
"Certainly I think it is up to him

to give a strong condemnation of
that incident because it is an inter-
ference with his efforts to achieve
peace in this region," Christopher
told reporters.
Arafat was in Morroco, attending
the funeral of a founding member of
Fateh, the guerrilla organization
Arafat created. He issued no com-
ment on the attack.
Faisal Husseini, who holds the
Jerusalem portfolio in the Palestinian
self-governing authority, condemned

the attack, telling Israel Radio he con-
demns all attacks on innocent civilians.
In a leaflet issued in Gaza, the
Izzadin al-Kassam unit of Hamas said
that Sunday's attack was meant to
commemorate the killing during ariot
four years ago of 17 Palestinians in
Jerusalem's Old City.
The Palestinians were shot by secu-
rity forces on the Temple Mount, a site
holy to Muslims and Jews.
Hamas identified the gunmen shot
dead Sunday night moments after they

opened fire as Issam Mhana I
