October 24, 2009 - CNAS President John Nagl discusses the importance of training the Afghan security force with National Journal. "If we are going to depart Afghanistan, the only way to do so and be secure is to have a reliable Afghan security force appropriately sized, working for a reasonably well-respected, well-supported Afghan government," said Nagl. "That's a work of three to five years and more resources than we have yet put into Afghanistan."
