US FORCES AFGHANISTAN STATEMENT ON TRAINING OF AFGHAN LOCAL POLICE

KABUL, Afghanistan (September 2, 2012) — "Special Operations Forces has a strong and trusted relationship with its Afghan partners that has endured more than a decade. Despite the recent rise in insider attacks, they are relatively rare among SOF partnered forces. Special Operations remains fully committed to a close and productive relationship with our Afghan partners. Current partnered operations have and will continue, even as we temporarily suspend training of about 1,000 new ALP recruits while re-vetting current members. While we have full trust and confidence in our Afghan partners, we believe this is a necessary step to validate our vetting process and ensure the quality indicative of Afghan Local Police."
