Summary: ” Examining events in Kunar and eastern Nuristan in 2007 and 2008, this paper begins with a brief overview of Kunar and Nuristan provinces and their strategic importance to both U.S. and enemy forces followed by a discussion of U.S. force disposition and strategy. The next section describes the “enemy syndicate” in the region, while the second half of the paper documents operations and major developments in three areas: the Pakistani border, northern Kunar and eastern Nuristan, and the interior of Kunar province, including the Pech and Korengal River Valleys. In conclusion, this paper challenges some of the assumptions about the U.S.’s counterinsurgency strategy in Kunar.” (Introduction, p. 6).
