General John R. Allen, COMISAF, agreed with President Karzai that these affiliated security organizations should be eliminated.
This process continues today, with all security related programs, in varying stages of deconstruction or transition. Most of these groups have been tied to Provincial and/or District Chiefs of Police all along, and are routinely inspected by the Afghan uniformed Police and ISAF elements for accountability.
“ISAF remains committed to ensuring all armed security-related rganizations fall within the sovereign control of Afghanistan, and pecifically under the control of MOI,” said General Allen. “ISAF will ork with MOI to ensure these groups with association with ISAF.”
The Interim Security for Critical Infrastructure program has been almost entirely transitioned successfully to ALP in RC (SW).
Other programs, including the Community Based Security Solutions (CBSS) and Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) programs will transition to MOI as well.
