Abstract:

The 2013 National Defense Authorization Act NDAA, Section 1215, directs The Secretary of Defense shall provide for the conduct of an independent assessment of the strength, force structure, force posture, and capabilities required to make the Afghan National Security Forces ANSF capable of providing security for their own country so as to prevent Afghanistan from ever again becoming a safe haven for terrorists that threaten Afghanistan, the region, and the world. The Under Secretary of Defense Policy asked CNA to make this independent assessment. The Under Secretary also requested CNA make several additional assessments of related issues.
