In reading the 1972 RAND report “Bureaucracy Does Its Thing: Institutional Constraints on U.S.-GVN Performance in Vietnam” by Robert W. Komer, which you can download from my blog by clicking here, I discovered something called the Hamlet Evaluation System which was used by the Civil Operations and Rural Development Support or CORDS program.  You can find the Hamlet Evaluation System on beginning on page 423 of the declassified Central Intelligence Agency document “CIA and Rural Pacification in South Vietnam” by Thomas Ahern, Junior which you can download from my blog by clicking here.

This discovery has caused me to wonder if the Hamlet Evaluation System, or something similar, was ever used in the present conflict in Afghanistan?
