Pentagon Announces Force Realignment of Counter Extremist Organization +Video

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By John Garamone  /  Conservative Base

The Department of Defense announced Thursday the realignment of Counter-Violent Extremist Organization personnel operating in U.S. Africa Command to support priorities outlined in the National Defense Strategy.

Somalia’s ruthless Muslim terrorist group Al-Shabaab is a big problem for neighboring African countries.

Over the next several years, the realignment projects a reduction of less than 10 percent of the 7,200 military forces serving in Africa Command.

Optimization preserves the majority of U.S. security cooperation partnerships and programs in Africa to strengthen partner networks, enhance partner capability and support ongoing programs.

C-VEO activities in several areas, including Somalia, Djibouti and Libya largely remain the same. In other regions, such as West Africa, emphasis shifts from tactical assistance to advising, assisting, liaising, and sharing intelligence.

Overall, optimization efforts retain the flexibility to adjust, as required, to maintain a competitive posture in a dynamic, global environment.
