Afghan National Security Forces Show Progress


U.S. Army Col. Bill Hix



U.S. Army Col. Bill Hix, commander of the Afghan Regional Security Command South, spoke with bloggers about the progress and potential of the Afghan National Security Forces. “[The] Afghans – in a relatively short period of time – have taken a big step forward,” Hix said. “When the Afghan army and police forces are the ones taking the fight to the Taliban on a day-to-day basis, the confidence of the people is going to rise, and the concern of the Taliban will rise as well,” he added.
