Afghan Uniformed Police officers search a vehicle at Checkpoint Doblex, Feb. 11. Checkpoint Doblex is manned by AUP patrolmen and is the only road into the Kajaki District Center. “We just finished a joint operation, and they have shifted some personnel around,” said Sgt. Michael Ellis, a military policeman with Police Advisor Team 4 and a 30-year-old native of Orange County, Calif. “Doblex holds a tactical advantage because it is the only route (Taliban) use from Keneshe Wan to bring in money, ammunition, and supplies, so they have to search those vehicles.”
