Abstract:

In 2009, the United States continues to face severe challenges in Afghanistan. However, the U.S. continues to work with the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan GIRoA, the Government of Pakistan, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO-led International Security Assistance Force ISAF, and the international community to disrupt, dismantle, and eventually defeat al-Qaida and its extremist allies, their support structures, and their safe havens in Pakistan, and to prevent their return to Pakistan or Afghanistan. This report describes the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, efforts towards achieving U.S. objectives in the country, and measures of progress along the security, governance, and reconstruction and development lines of operation.
