Hope for Afghanistan? Assessment by Linda Robinson

Linda Robinson, a well-known author, has a piece in The AFPAK Channel blog on Afghanistan. She has visited Afghanistan four times this year (2011) and interviewed numerous military and civilian officials of the coalition and Afghan government.  Her assessment is spot on and a good read which will provide a great understanding of the current situation in Afghanistan.  Of note is her stance that we need to partner more with Afghan security forces, support the Afghan Local Police (ALP) program, and get the Afghan security forces engaged more in the counterinsurgency fight.  See her article entitled "Is there hope for Afghanistan?", The AFPAK Channel, Foreign Policy, November 29, 2011 at the link below:
