Afghan Air Forces: The U.S. Has Reduced Its Advising for Vetting AAF and SMW Recruits and the Afghan Ministry of Defense Does Not Have the Resources Needed to Vet All Recruits or Personnel   [open pdf - 223KB]

From the Document: "This report discusses the unclassified results of SIGAR's [Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction] audit of U.S. Department of Defense and Afghan Ministry of Defense (MOD) efforts to address challenges associated with corruption in the Afghan Air Force (AAF) and Special Mission Wing (SMW). The objective of this audit was to assess the extent to which the MOD vets AAF and SMW recruits for corruption. We are making two recommendations to help ensure the MOD maximizes its anti-corruption vetting capacity. Specifically, we recommend that the Commander of Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan (CSTC-A): '1. Direct U.S. advisors to coordinate with the Afghan National Army (ANA) General Staff for Intelligence (GSG2) to develop additional, anti-corruption-specific questions for the Preliminary Credibility Assessment Screening System (PCASS) program'. '2. Direct U.S. advisors to advise and assist the MOD in identifying resource requirements that would allow GSG2 to impose PCASS and Cellular Exploitation (CELLEX) screening on all recruits to the Afghan air forces and high-risk individuals'."
