The U.S. force in Afghanistan is undergoing a major restructuring that will bring virtually all American troops under NATO command, a top U.S. military official said Tuesday. Vice Adm. Greg Smith, the top military spokesman in Afghanistan, said the intent was to integrate almost all of the 20,000 U.S. troops currently serving in eastern part of the country under a separate command known as Operation Enduring Freedom, into the 100,000-strong NATO-led International Security Assistance Force. The reorganization will not add any new forces to those already deployed, Smith said. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the senior NATO and U.S. commander in Afghanistan, will still command all allied forces in the theater. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates signed off on the reorganization before he visited Kabul last week, Smith said.
