E.O. 12958 N/A
TAGS: PHUM SNAR PINR PTER AF
SUBJECT: LEAHY VETTING REQUEST: ANP RANK REFORM OF THE
COUNTER-NARCOTICS UNIT

1. This is an action request; please see paragraphs 2 and 3.

2. In order to comply with Leahy vetting requirements, this cable
forwards the names and biodata of 15 Afghan National Police (ANP)
field grade officers selected for positions in the Counter-Narcotics
Unit. When there are individuals with one name, Post has made a
good faith effort to ensure that these individuals actually only
have one name.

3. IMPORTANT NOTE: The international community has approved pay
increases for ANP company grade officers (captains and lieutenants);
however, pay increases for the field grade ANP personnel will not be
approved until completion of Rank Reform. Currently, ANP field
grade personnel earn less than their Afghan National Army (ANA)
equivalents, a situation that is causing severe morale problems.
Completion of the ANP Rank Reform process will significantly
alleviate deteriorating morale, which is why Post requests the
Department's expedited vetting and response at the earliest possible
date. Post greatly appreciates Department's strong support for
completing the ANP Rank Reform process.

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.

Once upon a time, the Soviet Union was the nightmare threat for the entire Cold War era – and since then the US has cast the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State in the same demonic role. Iran is now the latest example…More
