ISAF Commander Praises Afghan Security Forces

WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2011 — The com­man­der of the Inter­na­tion­al Secu­ri­ty Assis­tance Force praised Afghanistan’s nation­al secu­ri­ty forces in a mes­sage released today.

Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen com­mend­ed Afghanistan’s army, police and nation­al secu­ri­ty units for their per­for­mance dur­ing the recent loya jir­ga, or grand coun­cil, in the Afghan cap­i­tal of Kab­ul.

“Your out­stand­ing per­for­mance of the secu­ri­ty mis­sion dur­ing this impor­tant event suc­cess­ful­ly pro­vid­ed the many del­e­gates an oppor­tu­ni­ty to meet and dis­cuss the impor­tant issues fac­ing Afghanistan,” he wrote. “We are con­fi­dent that the mem­bers of the Afghan secu­ri­ty forces, with con­stant vig­i­lance, will con­tin­ue to pro­vide the gov­ern­ment, and most impor­tant­ly, the peo­ple of Afghanistan, with the safe and secure envi­ron­ment they so rich­ly deserve.”
