520    Current operations, demands of persistent conflict, and 
       enduring U.S. national security interests underscore the 
       immediate and continuing need to improve U.S. Security 
       Force Assistance (SFA) efforts. The frequency and 
       importance of such activities throughout U.S. history 
       demonstrate that the current requirements are not 
       anomalies. Since September 11, 2001, the United States has
       been challenged to accomplish key national security goals 
       due to a lack of capability and capacity to effectively 
       advise, utilize, and partner with foreign security forces.
       To meet this challenge, this paper offers recommendations 
       that build upon recent initiatives within the Department 
       of Defense (DoD) to create a comprehensive approach to 
       improve U.S. SFA. At the heart of the recommendations is a
       DoD-level organizational approach to institutionalize SFA 
       activities effectively and to facilitate interagency and 
       multinational unity of effort. We intend to adapt current 
       DoD processes that encourage the ad hoc approach and 
       implement a single DoD-level integrating organization
