( ; ft , ;tC.A '''I V''-'.' V ' , ' The Associated Press WASHINGTON The Clinton administration is near to concluding that U.S. troops must slay in Bosnia beyond its self-imposed June deadline for withdrawing them, a top administration official said Saturday. "Within the administration, there's what I would call an emerging consensus that a continued American leadership role and a continued military strategy will be necessary to implement the Dayton accords," said Matthew Daley, the No. 2 official in charge of implementing the 1995 agreement that stopped ethnic warfare in former Yugoslavia. I "We're not going to walk away," Daley said in an interview, "fm confident of that." ! Daley said debate continues over what the troops' role will be, pointing to efforts to return refugees and establish democratic institutions. ; Daley commented after he spoke at a conference to mark the second anniversary of conclusion of the Dayton pact, which set rules for the belligerents to follow in Bosnia and sent in NATO-led forces to enforce them. ,; Last month, Robert Gelbard, the top U.S. official handling Bosnia, testified to Congress about the need for a prolonged mission in Bosnia. He underscored the importance of a U.S. role, but stopped short of saying a inew mission should include U;S. ground troops. The international Stabilization Force consists of about 32,000 troops, 8,500 American. ; On Saturday, Daley repeated Gelbard's assertion that the United States is looking for European allies to "share a greater part of the burden." ; Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., a member of the Armed Services Committee, said he has no doubt that the administration already has decided to extend the mission. ; "I think the only people who don't know are the American people and the Congress," said Roberts, who drafted a legislative compromise this fall that requires Clinton to justify an extension of the deadline but did not cut off money for the mission. ! Roberts agreed that war is likely to break out again if U.S. and NATO forces leave Bosnia. But he said the American troops have no clear mission and no certainty of how long it will take to; achieve it. ; "What's the end goal?" he asked. ; The length of the Bosnia mission has been at issue since US. forces arrived there two yars ago. Originally billed as a one-year mission, it was extended until June 1998 despite congressional misgivings. Clinton panel to criticize AIDS effort A report to be issued today says the AIDS battle has stalled. The Associated Press ' WASHINGTON - President Clinton's AIDS advisers are set to issue a harsh report card today accusing the administration of letting down its guard in the fight against AIDS. ; "Progress in the federal response to AIDS has stalled in recent months, contributing to a sense of diminished priority for AIDS issues during the president's second term," said a draft of a progress report to be approved today by the Presidential Council on HIVAIDS. t. The report cites the administration's failure to expand Medicaid to get AIDS-fighting drugs tp people infected with the HrV virus and accuses Clinton of lacking "the courage and political will" to finance programs for drug addicts to exchange dirty sy-rfnges for clean ones. It's the second progress report to be issued by Clinton's hand-picked AIDS advisers. The ffa-st, in July 1996, also criticized the administration's failure to finance needle exchange programs, but it emphasized that Clinton had done more than any ojf his predecessors to fight AIDS. This report is harsher, said Dr. Scott Hitt, a Los Angeles physician who chairs the 30-member council. Men's short sleeve golf shirts in o wide assortment of styles and colors.
