U.S. to Send Trainers to Afghanistan as Stopgap

U.S. to Send Trainers to Afghanistan as Stopgap 03 May 2010 Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates has signed an order sending 850 more American military personnel to Afghanistan as a stopgap measure to fill vacancies in the high-priority effort to train local security forces [to often shoot NATO soldiers and thus create a 'need' to deploy *more* NATO soldiers], Pentagon officials said Monday. The 850 extra American trainers will arrive and depart before the final combat forces arrive, so the growth in American forces will not rise above the 30,000 figure approved by the president.
