Pentagon warns of security gaps in Afghanistan

The Department of Defense provided Congress on Wednesday the April 2014 "Report on Progress Toward Security and Stability in Afghanistan". It says although the Afghani security forces continue to make progress, four key high-end capability gaps will remain after the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) mission ends on Dec. 31, 2014: air support, intelligence enterprise, special operations, and Afghan security ministry capacity. International funding and coalition force assistance will be critical to sustaining the force going forward.

Shut up when necessary

The Pentagon is feed up with leaks. "Over the last two years I've lost a first rate central command commander, and an outstanding commander of ISAF in Afghanistan due to their own missteps in dealing with the media, says Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates. He adds' "if you're a Captain in a unit that has an embedded reporter", be as open as possible within the guidelines and rules, but "if you're a Captain working in this building on budget options, I expect you to keep your mouth shut."
