Report on Progress toward Security and Stability in Afghanistan

Published October 1, 2014

The foreward of the June 2008 U.S. Department of Defense document, the first in the series, states, "This report to Congress is submitted consistent with Section 1230 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181). It includes a description of the comprehensive strategy of the United States for security and stability in Afghanistan." The report is required every 180 days in coordination with several departments (the Secretary of State, the Director of National Intelligence, the Attorney General, the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development, and the Secretary of Agriculture). See also the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) Quarterly Report to Congress.
