It is an honor to be invited to testify before this Committee about transitionin Afghanistan.It is a particular privilegeto appear with my three fellow panelists –LieutenantGeneral Barno, Dr. Cordesman, and General Keane –all of whom have sharpened my own thinking on these important issues.

I appear here today in my capacityas an analyst with the Congressional Research Service.  But I have also had the honorof serving as an advisor to a number of ourmilitary commandersin Afghanistan, as part of NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), and also on extended visits as an outside expert, most recently late last year.  I am profoundly grateful for theprivilege of having servedalongside our first-rate men and women in uniformand ourcivilian officials. In them, the nation has much to be proud of.
