US classifies data on Afghan security forces' casualties: watchdog

US classifies data on Afghan security forces' casualties: watchdog | Daily Mail Online:

The decision was slammed on Monday by the US government's Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) John Sopko, who said it would hamper the watchdog's ability to chart progress among US-funded Afghan troops.
"USFOR-A said the casualty data belonged to the Afghan government, and the government had requested that it be classified," Sopko said in the latest quarterly report documenting the use of US funds in Afghanistan.
There was no immediate comment from US Forces or Afghan officials.
