developing Afghan institutional capacity to enchance security and
stability across Afghanistan. The United States military forces in
Afghanistan are conducting " . . . two narrow, well-defined, and
complementary missions: training, advising and assisting the ANDSF and
supporting counterterrorism operations against remnants of al Qaeda and
its associates." 1.
