...at best inadequate...

I en ny rapport från The Rand Corp. kallad War by Other Means: Building Complete and Balanced Capabilities for Counterinsurgency, karakteriseras USA:s militära äventyr i den muslimska världen som "at best inadequate, at worst counter-productive, and, on the whole, infeasible."

Det är starka ord. Speciellt som rapporten skrevs på uppdrag av Pentagon.

I rapporten föreslås bland annat att USA "should instead focus its priorities on improving "civil governance" and building "local security forces," according to the report, referring to those steps as "capabilities that have been lacking in Iraq and Afghanistan."
