Our friends over at Danger Room have posted an item about the U.S. Special Operations Command’s search for someone to turn U.S. troops into Afghan cooks. But not just any kind of Afghan cooks. As the contract solicitation explains:
This training shall encompass instruction on; Slaughter techniques, cultural diversity, equipment overview, identifying meat cuts from cattle: swine, goat and poultry. Preserving: meats, vegetables, animal hides and cooked materials. Afghanistan meal presentation; cutting, grinding, and curing meat portions. Preparing bread from raw wheat kernels. Preparing and serving authentic Afghan meals with indigenous cooking equipment.
Apparently, three cups of tea no longer suffice.
