PostSubject: Watchdog: Pentagon blocks information on insurgent dominance in Afghanistan   Tue Jan 30, 2018 3:55 am

KABUL, Afghanistan — The U.S. military is keeping from the public more information that gauges the war in Afghanistan’s success, a government watchdog said after significant insurgent gains.
The Defense Department has restricted the pubic release of data on the number of districts and people living in territory under insurgent or government control, or areas contested by both, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, or SIGAR, said in a report released late Monday.
“The number of districts controlled or influenced by the Afghan government had been one of the last remaining publicly available indicators for members of Congress ... and for the American public of how the 16-year-long U.S. effort to secure Afghanistan is faring,” John Sopko, the special inspector general, said in the report.
