Gloomy Outlook in Afghanistan
By SOF

The American withdrawal from Afghanistan is coming in the context of an incomplete reconstruction effort and Taliban gains. The news comes as foreign policy crises are erupting across the world.

According to a report by National Review Online, John F. Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, wrote in his report, “Despite the drawdown of U.S. and Coalition forces [from Afghanistan], our mission there is far from over. With almost $18 billion appropriated but not yet spent in the pipeline, and probably another $6 to $10 billion promised annually for years to come, Afghanistan reconstruction should still be relevant to every U.S. taxpayer and policy maker.”

In this excerpt from the interview RKB did with Maj. Jim Gant that appeared in the June, 2014 issue of SOF, the trouble that the Rules of Engagement and risk-averse REMFs caused is outlined.

In Gant's white paper, "One Tribe at a Time," he maintained, "...that to be successful, the military chain of command had to give the Special Forces teams working with the tribal forces unusual trust and latitude. They needed to be able to hit targets quickly, gaining approval if necessary through a single radio call instead of having to abide by the standard, glacial rules of engagement. They had to fight side by side with the tribal forces, not in segregated teams. They had to be free from burdensome reporting requirements and have greater leeway to spend money to benefit the local communities (this will sound familiar to most Vietnam Green Beret vets)."
