SIGAR 20-18-AL: Alert Letter: U.S. Counternarcotics Strategy in Afghanistan   [open pdf - 168KB]

From the Letter: "On September 17, 2018, the Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control requested that SIGAR [Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction] conduct a review of the U.S. government's current counternarcotics efforts in Afghanistan, including counter threat finance (CTF) activities directed at the Afghan terrorist and insurgent narcotics trade. Our audit to respond to the caucus's full request is ongoing. However, as part of that review, the caucus asked us to determine and report on the status of the Department of State (State)-led interagency 2012 'U.S. Counternarcotics Strategy for Afghanistan' and State's revision of, or plans to revise, this strategy. We are writing to inform you that State has not revised, and has no plans to revise, the 2012 'U.S. Counternarcotics Strategy for Afghanistan'. We have also faced difficulties obtaining information related to the U.S. government's CTF strategies and activities in Afghanistan due to the National Security Council's (NSC) lack of cooperation."
