Since the beginning of the Afghanistan Campaign, one of the largest challenges in fostering trust between ANDSF and their coalition advisors has been the risk of insider attacks. Insider attacks are known as the Blue-on-Green or in cases when Afghan soldier(s) attack/target their own in the rank, Blue-on-Blue. The enemy uses this tactic to further apart the lack of collaboration and trust between ANDSF and their coalition advisors and also to sew mistrust between Afghan soldiers. While there is no one solution to remedy this problem all at once, but much can be done to mitigate and detect the risk of such attacks on coalition advisors and ANDSF soldiers.
Our solution to this problem is training and creating awareness. We believe coalition advisors receive appropriate ongoing and periodic training with regards to this subject, but on the contrary, their Afghan counterparts both on the ANA and the ANP side receive little to no training on this matter. Our center develops this much-needed training solution designed explicitly for the Afghanistan scenario by considering their linguistic and cultural traits. We develop and alter our training for the specific needs of our clients. These trainings are offered on multiple platforms, online, in-person, and in the field.
