This speaks to the level of historic HI, SI, FMV development in the valley. Depth of start points MED. A third of our active targets have good selectors. NSA-W has taken on SI development in Waygal, greatly enhancing our understanding of the SI environment. Number of active targets HIGH. 0 Over a dozen active targets across 3 villages, most of whom are or could easily be. Known AQ Arabs are on this deck. H-value* HIGH. 0 Waygal is an historic AQ sanctuary. The targets there are not only senior-level Taliban facilitators and hosts, butArabs themselves. Faruq al-Qahtani and Dost Mohammad and their entourages frequent Waygal. Elimination of these targets will provide demonstrable measures of success. Value (H-Value) is the assessed return on investment of achieving success in a named operation?
