FOR PM/PPA STEPHANIE AHERN

E.O. 12958: DECL: 06/15/2016
TAGS: PARM PK PM PREL MASS CD
SUBJECT: CHAD: SECTION 1206 FOR FY 07

REF: A. SECSTATE 84596
B. NDJAMENA 53

Classified By: CLASSIFICATION DERIVED FROM REFTEL

1. (S/NOFORN) Post has reviewed the FY 07 proposed 1206
activity (reftel A) and declines the following program:

Tactical Communications Interoperability (TCI) (USD 3.144)
for Chad, Algeria, Mauritania and Nigeria

Reason: At this time a number of training and equipment
activities are underway with the Chadian armed forces. We
are concerned about overloading the host government's ability
to effectively manage and utilize an additional program.
Post would be willing to revisit the possibility of the TCI
program in FY 2008.

2. (S/NOFORN) Post notes that this proposed FY 07 activity
is in addition to the following approved 1206 proposals:

- MISI (reftel C)
- Light Infantry Train and Equip (USD 6 million)
- Tactical Airlift Capacity Equipment (USD 1.7 million)
- Partner Nation Intelligence Capability (USD 1.1 million)
(with Algeria, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger,
Nigeria, Senegal)

3. (S/NOFORN) Post reminds that reftel B requested that we
be given an opportunity to review the details of the proposed
training for Partner Nation Intelligence Capability
prior to scheduling of the training and deployment to Chad.

Pacific Moves: China, Vanuatu And Australia

Washington’s vigilant deputy, doing rounds on the beat in the Pacific, has been irate of late. The central issue here is the continuing poking around of China in an area that would have been colloquially termed in the past “Australia’s neighbourhood”. More>>

Diplomatic Madness: The Expulsion of Russian Diplomats

How gloriously brave it seemed, some 23 nations coming together like a zombie collective to initiate a fairly ineffectual action in of itself: the expulsion of Russian diplomats or, as they preferred to term it, intelligence operatives. More>>

Campbell On: the US demonising of Iran

Satan may not exist, but the Evil One has always been a handy tool for priests and politicians alike. Currently, Iran is the latest bogey conjured up by Washington to (a) justify its foreign policy interventions and (b) distract attention from its foreign policy failures. More
