EXCLUSIVE: Foreign Officer Kept Afghan Soldiers From Going AWOL in U.S.
I am growing more and more suspicious as this story develops. The timing of this hitting the news last month after the Afghan's had been AWOL for several months is cause for concern imo.

EXCLUSIVE: Foreign Officer Kept Afghan Soldiers From Going AWOL in U.S.

When U.S. and NATO officials realized that an increasing number of Afghan military trainees were going AWOL from Lackland Air Force base, they sought out a full-time Afghan liaison to ensure that the students completed their training and returned home. That man was Lt. Col. Wahab Sultany.


LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- Last December, U.S. and NATO officials realized they had a growing problem: an increasing number of Afghan military trainees were going AWOL from Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, Texas, where they were learning to speak English.

As the language program is considered crucial to the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan and to the long-term development of that nation’s national security forces, a full-time Afghan liaison was appointed to ensure that the students complete their training and return to Afghanistan.

That man was Lt. Col. Wahab Sultany, an active Air Corps squadron commander in Afghanistan who came to the Defense Language Institute (DLI) at the base as a student in May 2009. In January, he was appointed to oversee the Afghan military men attending the program in Texas as well as other Afghan students at Air Force bases in Mississippi and Alabama.

To call his appointment a successful one would be an understatement. Last year, prior to his assignment, 21 Afghans went AWOL -- including seven in December alone. But in the first half of this year, under Sultany's watch, that number dropped to one -- and NATO and U.S. officials say that deserter was already in the program before Sultany got the job.
