This report was sent by President George W. Bush to the Speaker of the House of Representatives J. Dennis Hastert to summarize U.S. efforts to obtain Iraq's compliance with the UN Security Council resolutions as of July 13, 2001, consistent with the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution. From the document: "As long as Saddam Hussein remains in power, he will continue to threaten the well-being of the Iraqi people, the peace of the region, and vital U.S. interests. We are conducting an Iraq policy review to determine the best means of advancing our interests. We are working to strengthen the international consensus on the need to change the international community's approach to Iraq. We are also considering how best to achieve our objective of helping Iraqis liberate themselves and how best to use the No-Fly Zones to ensure the safety of the Kurds and Iraq's neighbors. We will continue to counter the threats posed by Iraq, but, over the long term, the most effective and lasting way to end this threat is through a change of government in Baghdad."
