Rebuilding the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) was considered one of the few success stories of the U.S. reconstruction effort in Iraq. When the Americans withdrew in 2011 there were questions about whether the ISF would be able to keep up the fight against the insurgency. Issues of training, equipment, logistics and leadership were all brought up. To help shed some light on this issue is Morgan Smiley who served as a police adviser in Ramadi from 2010-2011 with the U.S. Army’s 3rd Infantry Division. He retired from the army in 2013 and served as an adviser to Afghan, Iraqi, and Saudi forces. He currently works as a civilian adviser to the Afghan forces.
