"Sgt. Hill, whose name has been changed to protect his identity, has been in Afghanistan only a few months as part of the new troop surge into the country. The troops are mainly focused on training and promoting the Afghanistan army and police force. The training is the United States' attempt to "teach a man to fish," in the security department of the ever turbulent country, a country which is still undecided if it wants to break free from Taliban influence. With these larger issues at hand the need for proper amounts of food and water have fallen by the wayside. "
That's a very serious charge Ms. Samantha A. Torrence makes in her article. I don't know much about the site, Digital Journal, but such wild accusations are foder for our enemy and one would hope more caution in such matters. No doubt things are tough in Afghanistan and American troops deserve proper support, but I need to see more evidence before I believe this story.
