‘US designed a force unable to provide national security’: Report slams American training of Afghans

‘The Pentagon has spent billions outfitting Afghan forces without giving them proper training, failing to understand the full “complexities and scale of the mission,” a government watchdog said, also pointing out other flaws in US strategy.

The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) issued a critical report on Thursday, titled “Reconstructing the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces: Lessons From the US Experience in Afghanistan.”

SIGAR found the US government ill-prepared to help Afghanistan in building proper security forces that could protect the country from “internal and external threats and prevent the country from becoming a terrorist safe haven.”

One of the key problems outlined in the report was that Afghan soldiers, while being handed advanced weaponry, were poorly trained. The US and NATO instructors sent to Afghanistan were themselves undertrained and undermanned, with the NATO training mission for ANDSF missing at least 50 percent of its staff.

Over 100,000 Afghan police were trained by US Army pilots, infantry officers, and civilian contractors, despite these clear concerns about the competency of the instructors.’
