Furey - Local Engagement in Afghanistan

A paper recently published and posted on the Small Wars Journal provides some valuable insight into what has gone wrong with the war in Afghanistan and what needs to be done in the future to stabilize the country and accomplish the objectives of the United States.  The author takes us step by step through some of the past roadblocks and proposes some unique ways to attain our goals.  Read "A Comprehensive Approach to Local Engagement in Afghanistan", by Eric T. Furey, October 24, 2010.

Info about the author taken from the paper: 
"Eric Furey is a retired US Army Special Forces Lieutenant Colonel. He served as a Red Team Leader and as part of the first Red Team (Alternative Perspective) to deploy with the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force - Afghanistan from July 2008 to January 2009. He along with his fellow Red Teamers wrote the initial concept and plan for Tribal Engagement. In addition, they created a Tribal Engagement Fusion Cell. Their efforts became the genesis for subsequent local engagement activities in Afghanistan."
