As Western troops withdraw from Afghanistan, the Afghan National Army (A.N.A.), such as it is, has been tasked with securing the country. Yet the A.N.A. arose under foreign tutelage and will remain dependent upon foreign support for the foreseeable future. Thus it can only be seen by the majority of Afghans as a legacy of the occupation and not a "national'" institution. The focus is set primarily on the A.N.A.'s ability to carry out the task it has been assigned: "ensuring security in Afghanistan." Along the way, the author covers a wide spectrum of topics: the current state of the Afghan National Army (A.N.A.), Taliban infiltration, intelligence failures, the "intelligence war" among various nations and alliances (N.A.T.O., U.S., U.K., I.S.A.F.), green on blue attacks and the rise of war criminals heading private militias that present the biggest challenge to the reorganization of State institutions.Sujets: POLITICAL SCIENCE / General | National security | Afghanistan.
