ANDSF Logistics is Key? Daniel Goure, a national security commentator, says that "An effective logistics enterprise is the key to a successful counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan".

However, he presents a sound argument for increasing the ability of the ANDSF to maintain its fleet of vehicles.
