Default AP Newsbreak: Drop in Taliban attacks incorrect

Quote:
The U.S.-led military command in Afghanistan incorrectly reported a decline last year in Taliban attacks and is preparing to publish corrected numbers that could undercut its narrative of a Taliban in steep decline.

After finding what they called clerical errors, military officials in Kabul said Tuesday that a 7 percent drop in "enemy initiated attacks" for the period from January through December 2012 reported last month will be corrected to show no change in the number of attacks during that span.

The 7 percent figure had been included in a report posted on the coalition's website until it was removed recently without explanation. After The Associated Press inquired about the missing report, coalition officials said they were correcting the data and would re-publish the report.

"During a quality control check, ISAF recently became aware that some data was incorrectly entered into the database that is used for tracking security-related incidents across Afghanistan," said Jamie Graybeal, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition known officially as the International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF.

Graybeal said a subsequent audit determined that portions of the data from unilateral Afghan military operations were "not properly reflected" in the trends ISAF had reported in its monthly updates on security and violence.

"After including this unilateral ANSF (Afghan National Security Force) data into our database, we have determined that there was no change in the total number of EIAs (enemy initiated attacks) from 2011 to 2012," Graybeal said.

After the election no suprise it changed given this current admins philosophy..

That being said there was no change in attacks same number as 2011 to 2012 during that period. But given the death increases of Coalition forces since Obama took office the MSm must of been trying hard to spin it. Well those in the bed you know.

Imagine if this was reported 2 weeks before the election? Dropping bombs aint too good well for the current admin

It doesn't matter who is there and who is not. If there is no convenient foreign target, they will happily do each other. So "attacks are common no matter what.
