Afghanistan: The Exit Plan takes shape

November 27, 2012

The US Central Command is developing detailed plans for moving its men and material out of Afghanistan, with a determination that multiple paths be laid in advance in order to avoid disruption and bottlenecks.  The Bug Pit has the story; the link to the CENTCOM slide presentation does not work, but here is a picture of the main slide:

The US will be moving over 2000 containers a month, every month, for two years.  Much of that will be transiting corrupt and even lawless spaces . . . the cynic in me wonders how much of that material will be lost along the way, and how much of the transport cost will be going to bribes large and small.
