The Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, or SIGAR, released a report stating the eight rigid-hulled inflatable boats were at one time considered a priority for the Afghan forces. Afghanistan already utilizes four similar boats, and these eight were intended to deter smuggling on its north and west border, the report said. The Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan, or CSTC-A, which includes multinational military counterparts, canceled the requirements for the boats, but the boats were nearly completed and shipped to the Cheatham Annex in Yorktown, Va., where they have remained since 2011, the report said.
