The report of the Independent Commission on the Security Forces of Iraq by Independent Commission on the Security Forces of Iraq ( )
5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Independent Commission on the Security Forces of Iraq was chartered by the United States Congress in Public Law 110-28, signed into law by President George W. Bush on May 25, 2007, to assess the readiness of Iraq's military and police forces to fulfill four major responsibilities: maintain the territorial integrity of Iraq, deny safe haven to international terrorists, bring greater security to the country's 18 provinces in the next 12 to 18 months, and bring an end to sectarian violence to achieve national reconciliation. Further, the Commission was tasked to evaluate the capacity of the Iraqi Security Forces (military and police) in key functional areas, including training, equipping, command and control, intelligence, and logistics, and to consider the likelihood that continued U.S. support would contribute to the ISF's readiness. Finally, the law directed the Commission to report its full findings to Congress. At the request of Congress, the Commission is submitting its report in advance of its statutory deadline so that policymakers can consider its findings concurrently with other progress reports on Iraqi security that will soon be submitted to the executive and legislative branches
Afghanistan Study Group report revitalizing our efforts, rethinking our strategies by James L Jones ( )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Afghanistan stands today at a crossroads. The progress achieved after 6 years of international engagement is under serious threat from resurgent violence, weakening international resolve, mounting regional challenges, and a growing lack of confidence on the part of the Afghan people about the future. The United States and the international community have tried to win the struggle in Afghanistan with too few military forces and insufficient economic aid, and without a clear and consistent comprehensive strategy to fill the power vacuum outside Kabul and to counter the combined challenges of reconstituted Taliban and al-Qaeda forces in Afghanistan and Pakistan, a runaway opium economy, and the stark poverty faced by most Afghans. The authors believe that success in Afghanistan remains a critical national security imperative for the United States and the international community. Achieving that success will require a sustained, multi-year commitment from the United States and a willingness to make the war in Afghanistan -- and the rebuilding of that country -- a higher U.S. foreign policy priority. What should the United States do to address the many obstacles to success in Afghanistan? While the Study Group acknowledges that mistakes have been made, it focuses its attention on the future, analyzing the current situation with a view to what is needed to match strategies with goals and the required resources. After offering its assessment of the current situation in Afghanistan, the Study Group addresses six critical issues to revitalize the U.S. and international effort in that country: international coordination, security, governance and the rule of law, counter-narcotics, economic development and reconstruction, and Afghanistan and its neighbors. In addition to these recommendations, the Study Group offers three overarching recommendations to bring sharper focus and attention to Afghanistan within the U.S. government and the broader international community

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Naval Vision: The hallmark of the Navy/Marine Corps team has been the ability to change, adapt and transform to meet new threats to America. Once again, our Naval team is changing in response to a new national security posture as articulated in the DoD Quadrennial Defense Review. This vision statement defines this new direction for the United States Navy and Marine Corps to continue to control the sea and to project power, defense and influence beyond the sea part of a Joint Warfighting Team. Our forces will use the sovereignty of the sea and enhanced networked seabasing to operate without restriction. Our forward expeditionary nature will provide persistent warfighting capabilities and sustained American influence wherever we may be called to deploy. We will assure our friends and allies, and together with the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army and U.S. Coast Guard we will dissuade, deter, and defeat our nation's enemies. Our Sailors, Marines, and Civilians will leverage innovative organizations, concepts, technologies, and business practices to achieve order of magnitude increases in warfighting effectiveness. Sea-Air-Land-and Space will be our domain. The Power of Joint Service Teamwork!
