    The U.S. military is no longer tracking how many districts in Afghanistan are controlled by the Afghan government and what territory is under Taliban control, a Pentagon watchdog said Wednesday.
    In its latest quarterly report to Congress, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (SIGAR) said it was told the district assessments were “of limited decisionmaking value” to the commander of the Resolute Support (RS) mission.

    “Despite its limitations, the control data was the only unclassi­fied metric provided by RS that consistently tracked changes to the security situation on the ground,” the report said. “While the data did not on its own indicate the success or failure of the South Asia strategy, it did contribute to an overall understanding of the situation in the country.”
    Special inspector general John Sopko last week signaled that the control data would be missing from the next quarterly assessment, lamenting to reporters that “almost every metric for success or failure is now classified or non-existent.”
    The move away from assessing district control is in line with President Trump’s complaint that too much information about the war was being made public.
    But Sopko told reporters last week he did not think there was “any link specifically” between the recent change and Trump’s January comments that releasing inspector general reports on wars is “insane.”
    The change in reporting comes as the Trump administration ramps up its efforts to negotiate an end to the war with the Taliban.
