Abstract:

The U.S. special operations forces SOF mission in Afghanistan is scheduled to transition over the next few years. As the nature of the environment evolves to something more closely resembling a normal host-nation setting, there will be a transition from a large SOF presence with semiautonomous command and control functions to a much smaller liaison or representational footprint within the U.S. embassy.
