Honesty from Departing IJC Cdr?
LTG Joe Anderson, the commander of the ISAF Joint Command (IJC) - now shut down, provides a last minute informal assessment of the Afghan National Security Forces - and Azam Ahmed gives us the details. See "Misgivings by U.S. General as Afghan Mission Ends", The New York Times, December 8, 2014. The surprise contained within this news report is the honesty the general seems to provide us. He points out many of the persistent problems that afflict the ANSF and doesn't sugar coat it. If only more of our generals could be this honest with us!
