The trouble with the ANP


A new Newsweek/Pro Publica investigation into the training of the ANA is all kinds of grim:

America has spent more than $6 billion since 2002 in an effort to create an effective Afghan police force, buying weapons, building police academies, and hiring defense contractors to train the recruits—but the program has been a disaster.

How bad is it? The only bright spot in the entire program is thanks to the efforts of the Italian carabinieri. Read the whole thing; it lays out in detail just how screwed up the security situation is in Afghanistan.

  1. You would be more credible if your title said ANP instead of ANA. Still the ANP are screwed up and the US state department should learn from the Italian example.

    • you missed the same mistake in the first line (thx for the link, BTW). (feel free to delete this comment)
