                Presidential Determination No. 2013-8 of April 11, 2013

                
Drawdown Pursuant to Section 552(c)(2) of the 
                Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 of up to $10 Million in 
                Commodities and Services From Any Agency of the United 
                States Government to the Syrian Opposition Coalition 
                (SOC) and the Syrian Opposition's Supreme Military 
                Council (SMC)

                Memorandum for the Secretary of State [and] the 
                Secretary of Defense

                Pursuant to the authority vested in me as President by 
                the Constitution and the laws of the United States, 
                including section 552(c)(2) of the Foreign Assistance 
                Act of 1961, as amended (FAA), 22 U.S.C. 2348a, I 
                hereby determine that:

                    (1) as a result of an unforeseen emergency, the 
                provision of assistance under chapter 6 of part II of 
                the FAA in amounts in excess of funds otherwise 
                available for such assistance is important to the 
                national interests of the United States; and
                    (2) such an unforeseen emergency requires the 
                immediate provision of assistance under chapter 6 of 
                part II of the FAA.

                In addition, pursuant to the authority vested in me as 
                President by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, including section 614 of the FAA, I 
                hereby determine that it is important to the security 
                interests of the United States to furnish this 
                assistance to the SOC and the SMC without regard to any 
                other provision of law within the purview of section 
                614(a)(1) of the FAA.

                I therefore direct the drawdown of up to $10 million in 
                nonlethal commodities and services from the inventory 
                and resources of any agency of the United States 
                Government to provide food and medical supplies to the 
                SOC and the SMC for distribution to those in need.

                The Secretary of State is authorized and directed to 
                report this determination to the Congress, to arrange 
                for its publication in the Federal Register, and to 
                coordinate execution of this drawdown.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,
