SFABs and the Targeting Process in an Advisory Role
A recent online article discusses the challenges that a Security Force Assistance Brigade (SFAB) encountered when it attempted to advise the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) on a successful targeting cycle that would provide focus to their tactical operations. Two Army Captains who recently returned from an Afghan deployment to Regional Command South provide their observations on this topic to include the targeting process (see F3EAD), working with their Afghan counterparts, understanding the dynamics of the Afghan population, and providing intelligence support to a counterinsurgency.
