admin < 1 min

AP, 12 April 2012
Now the McRaven Plan: The AP has learned details of a plan developed by the head of US special operations ‘that would replace thousands of US troops with small special operations teams paired with Afghans to help an inexperienced Afghan force withstand a Taliban onslaught as U.S. troops withdraw’. According to this scenario, ‘some two-thirds of the roughly 6,000-strong special operations force would head to Afghanistan’s rural towns and villages’ and expand the ‘Village Stability Operations program’, including the establishment of new ALP units.
