Brief Executive Summary
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee examined the new counter-narcotics strategy in order to evaluate the overall policy being placed by the administration in Afghanistan. The report finds that there is still additional work needed to combat drug trafficking (with many predicting that progress will not come till 10 years) and suggests recommendations that can be made to help.
