History and Biodata

Rahmatullah Nabil had worked closely with Mr. Karzai for six years (2004-2010) as the head of the President Protective Service PPS. He provided security when President Karzai traveled, and he is trusted by the president. He later (2011) became Head of NDS.

Eight PPS security guards convoy were injured on their way to Orgun district, when they came under rebel attack in the Zurmat district of southeastern Paktia province on Thursday Jul 17, 2014. The incident took place in the Haibat Khel area of Zurmat, as the convoy moved to Orgun district ahead of President Karzai’s visit. The security convoy came under Taliban’s ambush after losing its way. The attack by Taliban militants was pushed back after additional forces were deployed to assist the presidential palace security forces. This comes as earlier reports suggested that nine of the security guards were abducted by Taliban militants during the gun battle.(20140718) Two days after they went missing, Afghan security forces discovered the corpses of nine President’s Protective Service (PPS) personnel in Sag village of Zurmat district in Paktika province on Friday, Jul 18, 2014. The missing personnel were captured by armed opposition groups and later beheaded. This most recent damaging experience of PPS till now raises questions of its capability. (20140718)
 

Background:
The State Department’s Nonproliferation, Anti-Terrorism, Demining and Related Programs (NADR) account supports a program for the training and equipping of the Afghan Presidential protection service, which protects the Afghan leadership and diplomats.(20100812)

From February 2005April 2006 (1 year 3 months) a seven man team of the Department of State’s Antiterrorism Assistance Program (AAP), trained 340 Presidential Protective Service agents conducting all aspects of security and close protection for the President of Afghanistan.

Afghan Airmen, operating an Afghan Mi-17 helicopter in black-out conditions, flew their aircraft to and from an austere, unlit landing zone in a training mission 22 August 2011. This training mission was practice for the Afghan Air Force’s real-world mission to airlift the Afghan Presidential Protective Service anywhere in Afghanistan to include a new requirement for both day and night operations. This new capability will allow the AAF's Presidential Airlift Squadron to use the cover of darkness to help conceal Presidential movements.(20110822)

At least two of Sardar Mohammad’s (who killed Ahmad Wali Karzai) family members were in the Presidential Protection Service, a unit which protects President Karzai.(20110712) One was Mohebullah Ahmadi, who was from Kazai's home village of Karz in southern Kandahar province.

The third and final class of 53 Afghan Presidential protective agents graduated on July 3, 2003.  Since November 2002, the Bureau of Diplomatic Security’s Antiterrorism Assistance Program (DS/ATA) has recruited, screened, trained, and graduated a total of 175 Afghan agents into the Presidential Protective Service. These agents will eventually assume security for Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who is currently receiving protection from the Bureau of Diplomatic Security. DS/ATA personnel selected recruits from a pool of 500 candidates drawn from all parts of Afghanistan and include members of the country’s five main ethnic groups.The seven-week training course began on May 14, 2003. The training curriculum included standard protection techniques, such as driving, firearms use, mass casualty/senior first aid, personal protection, and rudimentary explosives recognition, but was adapted to unique conditions in Afghanistan. For example, land mine avoidance was stressed because Afghanistanis strewn with the deadly devices.The Afghan agents will be supplied with appropriate protective security equipment, including firearms, as well as blue and gray business suits.(20030703)
