A copy of the report submitted to Congress in compliance with Sec 1212 of NDAA 2013: SEC. 1212. REPORT ON INSIDER ATTACKS IN AFGHANISTAN AND THEIR EFFECT ON THE UNITED STATES TRANSITION STRATEGY FOR AFGHANISTAN. (a) Sense of Congress- It is the sense of Congress that-- (1) to the maximum extent possible and consistent with the commander’s professional judgment and the requirements of the mission, the United States military should conduct local force protection for its troops on bases where such troops are garrisoned or housed in Afghanistan; (2) the increase in attacks and associated threats by Afghanistan National Security Forces personnel, Afghanistan National Security Forces impersonators, and private security contractors against United States, Afghanistan, and coalition military and civilian personnel raises concerns about the force protection for United States troops in Afghanistan and the procedures for screening, vetting, and monitoring Afghanistan National Security Forces personnel and Afghan Public Protection Force personnel; (3) the Department of Defense and the Government of Afghanistan are making efforts to address the threat of such attacks and associated threats, but continued leadership will be required; and (4) the North Atlantic Treaty Organization/International Security Assistance Force and the Government of Afghanistan should establish a program to continue to enhance vetting of Afghanistan National Security Forces and Afghan Public Protection Force recruits, to monitor the Afghanistan National Security Forces and the Afghan Public Protection Force personnel, and to re-assess Afghanistan National Security Forces and Afghan Public Protection Force personnel as required. (b) Report- Not later than 90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense shall, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Commander of North Atlantic Treaty Organization/International Security Assistance Force forces in Afghanistan, submit to Congress a report on the attacks and associated threats by Afghanistan National Security Forces personnel, Afghanistan National Security Forces impersonators, Afghan Public Protection Force personnel, Afghan Public Protection Force impersonators, and private security contractors against United States, Afghanistan, and coalition military and civilian personnel (‘insider attacks’) in Afghanistan, and the effect of these attacks on the overall transition strategy in Afghanistan. (c) Elements- The report required by subsection (b) shall include the following: (1) A description of the nature and proximate causes of the attacks described in subsection (b), including the following: (A) An estimate of the number of such attacks on United States, Afghanistan, and coalition military personnel since January 1, 2007. (B) An estimate of the number of United States, Afghanistan, and coalition personnel killed or wounded in such attacks. (C) The circumstances or conditions that may have influenced such attacks. (D) An assessment of the threat posed by infiltration, and a best assessment of the extent of infiltration by insurgents into the Afghanistan National Security Forces and the Afghan Public Protection Force. (E) A description of trends in the prevalence of such attacks, including where such attacks occur, the political and ethnic affiliation of attackers, and the targets of attackers. (2) A description of the restrictions and other actions taken by the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organization/International Security Assistance Force forces to protect military and civilian personnel from future insider attacks, including measures in predeployment training. (3) A description of the actions taken by the Government of Afghanistan to prevent and respond to insider attacks, including improved vetting practices. (4) A description of the insider threat-related factors that will influence the size and scope of the post-2014 training mission for the Afghanistan National Security Forces. (5) An assessment of the impact of the insider attacks in Afghanistan in 2012 on the overall transition strategy in Afghanistan and its prospects for success, including an assessment how such insider attacks impact-- (A) partner operations between North Atlantic Treaty Organization/International Security Assistance Force forces and Afghanistan National Security Forces; (B) training programs for the Afghanistan National Security Forces, including proposed training plans to be executed during the post-2014 training mission for the Afghanistan National Security Forces; (C) United States Special Forces training of the Afghan Local Police and its integration into the Afghanistan National Security Forces; and (D) the willingness of North Atlantic Treaty Organization/International Security Assistance Force allies to maintain forces in Afghanistan or commit to the post-2014 training mission for the Afghanistan National Security Forces. (6) An assessment of the impact that a reduction in training and partnering would have on the independent capabilities of the Afghanistan National Security Forces, and whether the training of the Afghanistan National Security Forces should remain a key component of the United States and North Atlantic Treaty Organization strategy in Afghanistan. (d) Additional Reports- The Secretary of Defense shall submit to the congressional defense committees a semi-annual update to the report required under subsection (b) through December 31, 2014. The additional reports required by this subsection may be submitted in the report required by section 1230 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 (Public Law 110-181; 122 Stat. 385), as most recently amended by section 1218(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112-81; 125 Stat. 1632). (e) Unclassified Executive Summary- The report submitted under subsection (b) and the semi-annual update to the report submitted under subsection (d) shall include an executive summary of the contents of the report in unclassified form.
