Interesting souvenir from Afghanistan

28 giugno 2011

The reverse side of a souvenir coin from the U.S. military’s intelligence center in Kandahar, Afghanistan, is shown, illustrating the shift in focus from helping the population to targeting the enemy. A year ago at this time, military intelligence officers were scrambling to collect and analyze a new form of intelligence _ the social, economic and tribal ins and outs of each valley and hamlet seen as crucial to helping commanders tell the good guys from the bad guys, learn what local Afghans really needed from their government and undermine the Taliban-led insurgency by gradually winning hearts and minds.
