TOP-SECRET PENTAGON SLIDES YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW ABOUT: General John Abizaid held a briefing on Friday from Central Command in Doha, Qatar. And he showed some interesting slides. The first slide breaks down the number of forces currently in Afghanistan.

US FORCES: 20,300
OEF COALITION: 2,024
NATO/ISAF: 6,221
The reason for the unusually large amount of American soldiers in Afghanistan is two-fold. One, there are more offensive operations along the Afghan-Pakistani border and two, there's currently a rotation between two divisions. This second slide shows where all the Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRTs) are located and what country is leading them. It also shows where several other places where coalition soldiers are operating.
