Inspector general to look at whether US support helps Iraqi special ops forces defeat insurgents | Military Times

A year after the Iraqi special operations units that lead the effort to defeat ISIS and suffered high casualty rates was reduced by nearly half its force in doing so, the lead inspector of the Defense Department will evaluate whether U.S. and coalition assistance to those units are enabling them to continue to defeat insurgents.

A memo published by the Inspector General of the Department of Defense announced the project his week.

“Our objective is to determine whether the U.S. and Coalition’s train, advise, assist, and equip efforts enable the Iraqi Qwat Khasah (Special Operations Forces) infantry units to defeat insurgents in accordance with theatre campaign objectives,” according to the memo signed by Kenneth Moorefield, deputy inspector general for special plans and operations.
