Afghanistan Strains Already-Strapped Army

October 12, 2009 - CNAS President John Nagl spoke with Steve Inskeep of NPR's Morning Edition about the strain on the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan. "The requirement for increased troop strength is doable, but it is going to put additional strain on an army that is already feeling a lot of pain," said Nagl. "Whatever troop level we increase to in Afghanistan in 2010 we need to be prepated to hold that level for 2-3 three years."
