General Petraeus Issues New COMISAF COIN Guidance (SWJ Blog)
Not sure Oakley will appreciate. Last thing Petraeus needs is a lawsuit.
Apart from that, really nothing new.
I expect the details (where the devil resides) will be a bit more closely held (at least one would hope).

"The COMISAF Counterinsurgency Guidance was prematurely released. It has been requested that the COIN Center remove the Guidance and the associated post from their web site. Small Wars Journal has decided to do the same. We hope to bring you the final version once released into the public domain.
Apparently the Small Wars blog pulled the document.
JJ - Do you have a copy?
I do but until I know more about why it was pulled I will hold it as I don't want to be another Wikileak.
Fair Point. If it gets re-released/cleared can you send me a copy.
Actually, forget it. I found a copy online.
Petraeus guidance is now legitimately available to download as an MS Word document, from the NATO/ISAF website, via the link on this US Army webpage:

"Identify corrupt officials. President Karzai has said, My government is committed to fighting corruption with all means possible. Help the government achieve that aim. Make sure the people we work with work for the people. If they dont, work with partners to enable action, or we will appear to be part of the problem. Bring networks of malign actors to the attention of trusted Afghan partners and your chain of command. Act with your Afghan partners to confront, isolate, pressure, and defund malign actors and, where appropriate, to refer malign actors for prosecution."
Great idea, but what if you discover that it's the president who's corrupt.
