He claimed this was due to the presence of CF patrols in the area. When asked if the enemy was displaced or had departed, Gul said that they remained, but were quiet and waiting for the CF to depart which they expected would be soon. Gul said that the Taliban in Zurmat were lead by Fazal Rahman, a member of the shura who provided intelligence to the PRT and to the Taliban. Gul said Rahman was working both sides. He said that Rahman was getting support from the Taliban in Quetta (COMMENT: This is a decidedly unusual reference. Generally, local Taliban claim ties to Haqqani and not Quetta).

On 10 October, PRT SHARANA and Paktika&amp;apos;s Governor Khpulwak made an official visit to Naka District. Naka is a remote and undeveloped district at the end of a dead end road in the mountainous northeastern region of Paktika. It has changed little over the last five years and remains a district strongly influenced by Taliban and Haqqani supporters. That this is still the case is highlighted by the engagement of the PRT&amp;apos;s ground element by insurgents with small arms and RPG fire as the PRTs convoy entered a mountain pass leading
- Matiullah produced a document signed with thumbprints from the religious leaders of the unofficial district of Gerda Serai. He said this are should be the first priority for the GOA since it has taken the life of so many soldiers (Gerda Serai is the primary district along the Khowst-Gardez mountain pass). He said the leaders agreed that they would speak out against the Taliban and the actions of Jalaluddin Haqqani stating that they were interested in progress and not continued fighting (this is decidedly unusual as Haqqani is usually referred to as Sahib by the people of Gerda Serai, his home district). Matiullah produced a video tape of his meeting with these religious leaders, and stated he intended to present it to the media for broadcast country wide, both radio and television. He said he had similar documentation for Melan and Tera villages. He said that the Mullahs were not afraid to speak, but only needed a collective forum to give

He said that Afghanistan was run by former warlords who did not understand the importance of democracy, and leaned on their old ways. He said that leaders like Pacha Khan Zadran, the Minister of Parliament, were no different than Jalaluddin Haqqani. DC said that one had to consider the history of Afghanistan, of the Russians and the US, and of Pakistan and Indias involvement. DC stated that all these things created the situation of corruption and Pakistans manipulation of Afghanistan. DC said the US needed to focus on activities from Pakistan. He said Pakistan was the heart of the problems in Afghanistan. He stated that the situation in 2001 and 2002 was good, but had deteriorated because Pakistan was able to infuse the Taliban with what they needed.

- The group agreed and stated that the country was likely to suffer greatly in the near term as they expected reconciled Taliban to rise up and cripple the system. They said that the reconciled people were still cast out of the government, and unable to achieve the personal and political power they held under the Taliban. They said that the former commanders were easily tempted by Hekmatyar and Haqqani, who offered money, power and prestige.
- The group opined that if corruption were stopped, it would improve every negative aspect of the GOA, and cease enemy support in the country, especially support for Hekmatyar and Haqqani. They opined that assembling an independent task force at the provincial level, comprised of trusted members (ala Elliot Ness) great progress could be made to bolster the support of the people. They opined this would also regain the interest of the reconciled commanders.

FOLLOW UP TO PRT KHOST OPS SALT REPORT: Regarding this mornings attacks on PRT Khost LNs, ANP, ABP, NDS, KPF agree that the attacks were a result of the use of Night Letters in the Tani District. They confirmed the attack took place at approximately 07:00L, by two to three assailants parked on the side of the road in a white station wagon. When asked about who was responsible for the attack, there were no firm conclusions or assessments. When pressed about which group was responsible for the distribution of night letters in the Tani District, they all seemed to agree that HIG, Haqqani and Taliban were driving the message and deliveries.
Credible evidence led the forces to the detainee, a suspected operative in the Haqqani network, who is also suspected of facilitating suicide bombers in the Khowst Province.
Credible evidence led the forces to the detainees, who are suspected operatives in the Haqqani network, responsible for facilitating IED attacks on peaceful Afghans and Coalition forces in the Khowst Province.
TANI sub-governor said they captured two more enemies who killed two people in Gurbuz. When questioned, they stated they came from Pakistan, were sent by Siraj Haqqani who told them there was no Islam in Khost, but when they went into a mosque, saw people praying, saw Islam, they were surprised.
Credible information led the combined force to the compound with suspected ties to the Haqqani network. Militants in the area are suspected of facilitating suicide bombers for extremist Siraj Haqqani.
Village elders provided Coalition forces with information that led directly to the detention of the suspected suicide bomber facilitator. The detainee is suspected of training suicide bombers for extremist Siraj Haqqani.
Credible intelligence led forces to the compound suspected of housing an assassination cell in the Haqqani network also involved in improvised explosive device attacks and weapons smuggling. A search of the compound discovered fragmentation grenades, rifles, an AK-47 and other contraband items. The cache was taken to a safe distance and destroyed in place.
The 200 ACM were located in Wash Khuwar Area, southwest of Khost City. Separately, in mid May 2007, Sirajuddin Haqqani sent five trucks into Khost Province, intended to be used in VBIED attacks against coalition forces and Afghan National Army. No additional information was available about exact location of timing of attack.
Credible intelligence led the forces to the location suspected of housing al-Qaida operatives supported locally by the Haqqani network.
The SG told me that he had info concerning a possible weapons cache in a nearby village that was inside the compound of a former associate of Jallaludin Haqqani. He told me that the cache had a guest house built over it and that if the windows are still nailed shut then the cache should still be there. He has an individual trying to confirm. I told the SG that we would be happy to assist in the recovery of this cache whenever he confirmed its location.

The Spera sub-governor requested more police in a security meeting about one month ago and was promised by the governor to get 45 more. So far he has only two. He reported that there is a group of about 250 ACM and are being lead by Mullah Mohammad Omar who works for Siraj Haqqani. He said there are two other leaders there as well, but not as senior as the other one. He just got this information yesterday and it is unclear if he gave it to anyone else. He said the people of Spera are supporting the government more than ever before, and that security is getting better, but he wants to address the concerns he has with ACM movement in the district.

The patrol traveled through Khowst to OBJ SHERIDAN (WB 82280 88921). C-26 established the cordon while ABP and ETT dismounted their vehicles. ABP and ETT then moved to the compound to set up the dismounted ABP outer cordon. Next ABP and ETT began soft knock to clear the compounds vic. the weapons cache. All personnel, except women and children who remained in their homes, were moved to a central location and were cooperative. ABP searched the houses and compounds with each homeowner. After the compound was secure THT moved in to conduct tactical questioning. ETT questioned 19 military age males. While the questioning was going on ABP began digging in the suspected locations for the weapons cache. Nothing was found and I decided to wait until THT finished the tactical questioning of the males. The person who provided this information to COL Kowchi was in the compound and when THT questioned him we gained further information on where the weaons cache might be located. We questioned the source with the other people in order to keep his identity a secret. We then had the person show us exactly where he thought the weapons cache was located. We ensured the homeowner could not see him point out the sites by having the homeowner stay on another part of the compound. When ABP resumed the search for the weapons cache 2 radiac meters were discovered in the compound. ABP again did not find weapons or ammunition. After not finding anything we returned all cell phones and personal AK-47s to their owners. We also provided HA to the occupants of the compound and obtained statements from the homeowners stating that nothing was damaged or stolen. The local nationals in the vicinity of the objective were excited that we were there and very supportive of the operation. THT detained 5 military age males for further questioning and they were brought back to FOB Salerno. The detainees are suspected of stealing U,.S. Connexes along the K-G pass, transferring weapons and ammunition at the compound for employment in the Khowst area, ties to Haqqani, and firing rockets in Khowst. From the information gathered by THT and prior reporting by ABP I come to the conclusion that the people detained are operating a rocket cell in the Khowst area. Upon arrival the FOB Salerno the detainees were processed into the FOB Salerno detention facility. Statements for this were submitted by COL Kowchi and PFC Davidson. The source was also brought to Salerno. We processed him as a detainee at the OBJ and removed flex cuffs when he was in the M1114 so that the other detainees wouldnt know he provided the information. I paid him $4,000 Afghani for the information he provided for the return of the U.S. Property a week prior, the U.S. property we recovered today and the information about the detainees. THT then talked to him further to see what additional information he could provide. THT arranged for his transportation back to Khowst. We concluded the operation with an AAR with ABP at FOB Salerno. ABP performed the operation professionally. Although, it was not perfect it gave them confidence and experience in conducting these type of operations.
CJ2: Pass appropriate information to ANA G2 regarding actions of Barudin Haqqani.
BG Rahman agreed with the CJ2 assessments of Afghanistan and RC-E. He was not aware that Barudin Haqqani, son of Saraj haqqani, was moving toward the interior.
SECURITY: The PRT Commander reported that the Governor and Chief of Police spoke about how ACM activities and attacks will increase in the summer months. The Governor went on to say that the NDS and ANA should be working in Logar as hard as the ANP are in the province. The Provincial Chief of Police reported on the attacks of the old Kharwar District Center, IEDs found in Kolangar, missiles being fired at Hades Base, and attacks in Charkh on CF and ANP convoys. The CoP also discussed the deaths of 5 police officers I the Azra District from an IED explosion, stating that it was unclear why the bomb was set in a location a significant distance away from the district center. Additionally, the Chief is planning to establish mobile checkpoints in the province between1600 to 1900 nightly. Finally the NDS representative reported on the Haqqani network was planning on increasing attacks in the area over the next four weeks.
-Main currency in the town is Pakistani Kaldaris (rupees), not Afghans. That indicates close economic ties of some sort with Pakistan. The Haqqani network may be a possible link between this town and Pakistan.
A security shurra was held today (2 Aug) in Gardez attended by the PRT Cmdr. The two tribes that attended were the Zadran and Haqqani. Results of this shurra were an acknowledgement of lack of security in these areas. Governor Rahmat told both tribes they must provide security using their own people. Both tribes signed an agreement to do this with the Government and were reminded that they can be fined if no compliance. Governor stressed unity of security by both tribes and to work together always. Reconstruction can not happen overnight and if the tribes dont cooperate with security there will be no reconstruction. Governor Rahmat told both tribes that 300,000 Euro dollars were already being used in projects but $5 million Euro was in jeopardy of being pulled by Germany due to the security issues. Stolen ANP uniforms and identification cards from Shwak and Gerdis Seri needed to be returned ASAP. Governor Rahmat made a comment that he would move his office to the KG Pass and bring security from other districts if needed to stop the violence. Governor Rahmat mentioned that the 150 Arbacay MOI has not yet been approved by the Afghan Government. If they dont provide security, projects will not occur and get committed elsewhere. Elders asked the Governor for 5 more days so they can conduct shurras amongst the tribes. A follow on meeting is set for 9 August.
&amp;quot;The suspects were preparing remote-controlled devices for the Taliban in Afghanistan,&amp;quot; the official said, adding that they had &amp;quot;links&amp;quot; with former mujahedin leader Jalaluddin Haqqani and his pro-Taliban son Siraj Haqqani.
2. The governor brought up the point of the negative impacts of having intense security operations during Khyber and following in the villages in the KG Pass; the increase of ANP in this region could have a negative effect in that the population would view this as an intrusion. It was agreed that the increased security operations are necessary to root out the Haqqani and Taliban insurgents who have assimilated into this region. It was agreed upon that mitigating the negative impact of increased village searches is difficult, but that the ANP/CF were going to do the best they can. The governor agreed that the initial push to search villages would at least make the people know their local leaders were being proactive.
Development: The subject of the overall development did not come up very much during the day, but observations from the drive in and out of Gardez point to an increasing and thriving economy. The tightening of the KG Pass due to Haqqani and Taliban insurgents have somewhat slowed the flow of economic traffic from Khowst to Gardez, and the upcoming operation and increased security measures within the KG Pass should, according to the governor and chief of police, eliminate those threats. Connecting Khowst and Gardez is definitely a key to the economic viability of the Tri-City ADZ, however connecting all of the districts in Paktia especially securing Zormat is just as important. The districts near the border face equal security threats from foreign fighters and Pakistani incursions, but a focus on the economic underdevelopment in those areas should tighten Paktia. Returnees from Pakistan also pose both a problem and an opportunity, as they can hurt the economy by depending on existing resources or they can be employed for all the new projects planned by the PRT and 4-73.",RC EAST,NEUTRAL,FALSE,TF 3FURY (4-73),4-73 CAV / SHARONA,None Selected,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,42SWC2116123989,33.65555954,69.22821808,UNKNOWN,UNKNOWN,,,NEUTRAL,GREEN,SECRET

A review of SIGINT traffic provided after the prosecution of the target, but collected earlier in the day on 5OCT indicated two ACM groups were meeting to conduct an arms deal. At 0735z, Bermels Prophet Team intercepted a Pashto gist with ACM discussing whether individuals were coming and bringing unknown items. Later the ACM referenced the meeting with them had occurred. At 1003z, Turkish ACM became active on SIGINT. At 1024z, a Turkish fighter was speaking on ICOM in eastern Orgun district with another individual, asking if Haqqani had 2,000 rupees with him and that he would need 50 pieces of (unspecified item) and 5 boxes. At 1054z, a Turkish fighter asked another to expedite his order. 2 hours passed without Turkish intercepts in either Bermel or Orgun districts. We assess this to be because the Turks were moving west from Bermel and east from Orgun to conduct linkup in southern Sarobi. At 1242z, the same Turks were active on push to talk communications in southern Sarobi, when a call-up for call sign Nasrat was monitored. These call-ups continued until 1310Z, when they stopped talking and, based upon what Predator observed, presumably effected link up with one another. After the conclusion of their meeting and just before the air strikes, SIGINT traffic was monitored with ACM in Bermel district that made reference to bringing the bullet.

The 4-73 SCO concluded by offering his assessment of where he believes the enemy currently lie in the Paktya AO. LTC Woods assessed that northern Zormat was influenced primarily by Taliban, with some of that influence carrying over to parts of Gardez and Sayed Karam. The Haqqani network was the major influencer in the KG Pass region and southeastern Zormat. HIG and foreign fighters were the main influencers in the Jaji region. Finally, Taliban and foreign fighters were the main influencers in the Chamkani region. After LTC Woods concluded, he turned the floor over to the ANA 203rd Corps XO Mir Sahib Gul, for his comments.
5. NDS Representative Yaumas began by stating that the NDS is working to collect more intelligence and is giving all of their intelligence to the PCC.

Rep Yaumas believes the key problem areas are Zormat, the KG Pass region, Chamkani, and Dand Paton. He believes Taliban are located in the villages of Sahak (Zormat) and Kolagu (Zormat), Sayed Karam district, Mirzaka district, Dand Paton district, and Jani Kheyl district near the Khowst border.Rep Yaumas mentioned that he believes insurgent activity will increase more next spring than it has in years past. He did not say why he holds this belief. Rep Yaumas also stated that Pakistani ISI is trying to bring insurgent leaders Siraj Haqqani and Mullah Omar together. He said that right now Siraj Haqqani is resisting these offers. Rep Yaumas concluded by stating that NDS caught two jingle truck drivers at a gas station in downtown Gardez trying to break into connexes and steal CF HMMWV tires, HESCO barriers, and plywood.
