U.S. Military to Review Afghan Recruiting Process
military may soon review the vetting of Afghans who have joined the U. military to ensure that they’re not terrorists. A draft assessment that was reportedly developed by the Defense Department will be released in June, and includes a section on how to effectively vet potential recruits. The new plan was first reported by USA Today.
military advisers are urging the U. State Department to review all “at-large” refugees who have lived, or are living, in the U. and are now living or are working in the U.
“The Department of Defense has requested a review of all at-large refugees, and this program is a good start to that review,” a Defense Department official told U. “We have been working with the U. Department of State to identify potential at-large applicants for this screening process. The final results of this review will be used as the basis for the next phase of the identification and review process.
military has a number of special screening programs or “voluntary enlistment programs,” which target potential recruits who possess at least one security-related reason for entering the military but who have not been approved to be in the active military. If a refugee has served in the U. military, he or she is more at risk of potential violence because the Department of State determines when they first joined the military.
The Trump administration has been at odds with Trump’s administration over the vetting of potential refugees, a dispute that has been fueled by conflicting statements from the State Department and the Pentagon. military has been looking to develop a more expansive process to vet those who can become a part of the U. military’s forces, a process that the Pentagon declined to elaborate on in a statement provided to U. A draft evaluation of potential recruits was reportedly developed by the Defense Department, and the military is now pushing for it to be released before the State Department completes a more detailed review.
The Inspector General for Evaluations of the Department of Defense will review Afghan evacuee screening processes and security risks.
The Department of Defense is charged with the responsibility of safeguarding the national security of the United States. It is committed to ensuring that all of its agencies and employees are competent and fit to perform their assigned functions.
In this respect, as authorized pursuant to Section 905(a) of Title 5 of the United States Code, Congress finds and declares that it is appropriate for the Department of Defense to review and take corrective action regarding security threats to individuals and other groups based on information provided by the Director of the Defense Logistics Agency to the Secretary of Defense. Specifically, the Secretary of Defense has been informed that current measures within the Department to screen passengers and crew members upon evacuating to and returning from Afghanistan may not provide effective protection against a serious security threat to the United States. In addition, as a result of the security threat to passengers and crew members, the Department of Defense intends to require the Office of the Inspector General to conduct an independent review of the Department and its agencies, to conduct a more focused assessment of the effectiveness of current security processes within the Department, to develop and implement an expanded set of security measures to protect United States interests in Afghanistan, and to review the implementation and impact of the Department’s security plans in Afghanistan.
In order to fulfill its responsibility under section 905(a), section 1815(a) of title 31, United States Code, and the guidance and policies published at Defense Manpower Data Center, Department of Defense, the Department has asked the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) to determine whether the Department of Defense has effective procedures and processes to address potential threats to individuals and other groups based on information provided by the Director of the Defense Logistics Agency to the Secretary of Defense.
A Review of the U.S. Evacuation from Afghanistan.
[Editor’s Note: We are proud to be bringing you the U. version of this story — it was originally posted in November, 2013! We have made it available as a resource for you and the public to access! Read it here and make sure you check out our new site! Here is the full text.
forces have returned to the U. from Afghanistan for the first time in over a year, and they’re not bringing back the troops. forces are evacuating those who were sent home in 2012. These troops are being sent home in hopes to get the economy, but in the process, they’re also leaving behind thousands of U. government employees — the ones who were stationed at home from the very beginning, the ones who have been living in their homes and in their families for over 35 years.
The people who left the homes have gone to work in the U. and will continue to do so.
At this time, President Obama ordered the U. to begin their evacuation of the people who were in Afghanistan, to bring them home. At the same time, military leaders will begin a series of exercises throughout Afghanistan and the U. will begin implementing a number of plans to ensure the safe and smooth functioning of the U. mission here.
Over the next week, the U. military will begin taking a break from the war and allow the people who left home in 2012 to begin returning. military and its partner forces will provide some respite from the fighting and focus on recovery and reintegration efforts.
But the evacuation has also been put on hold until the U. government can determine whether any of its citizens are still being affected by the war.
“After our withdrawal we’re trying to help the people to come back and get back on the road, but we’re doing it on our own,” Paul Litt, a spokesman for the U. government, told CNN. “We’re looking at that and trying to identify when people got hurt or had some kind of evacuation, whether the people have returned. At the moment, we’re not making any decisions on that.

Tips of the Day in Network Security
In this roundtable conversation, we’ve been looking at recent activity in web-based threat intelligence. This is a topic we’ve been covering since the beginning of the year, so I thought it’d be helpful to start the round with a couple of key take-aways of the year.
There’s been a lot of discussion around security measures for the enterprise. The biggest news for enterprise security is that businesses are using their IT to prevent attacks and defend their business, so let’s dig in a little deeper and discuss the top 2% of websites that are most likely to come up for a potential attack.
After a few weeks of reviewing the top 2% of the 2% most attacked sites, we’ve been discussing how those sites compare to the rest of the top 2%, and how we know that the most up-to-date security measures that are being used on those sites are the best way to protect them.
