Bad news for Afghanistan - 30 thousand Afghan troops flee the security forces - San Diego County Political Buzz | Examiner.com:
The real story behind the Pentagon’s failed decision to close the books on Afghanistan lies in the diminishing Afghan Security Forces; last fiscal year 30,000 Afghans fled the military! The numbers were released in an October 2014 Department of Defense report. “ANA (Afghan National Army) manning was approximately 165,000 personnel (significantly below its 195,000 cap), to include approximately 6,000 AAF personnel. The attrition rate in the ANA continues to pose challenges to ANSF development,” the report said.
