NATO foreign ministers Friday discussed the possible appointment of an international "super envoy" to better coordinate civilian and military efforts in Afghanistan. "Allies believe there is a need for greater coordination across the spectrum," alliance spokesman James Appathurai said. British media reports have suggested Lord Paddy Ashdown, a former international envoy in Bosnia, was being considered for the job, but Appathurai said no names had been discussed in the NATO talks. Meanwhile, Poland gave a boost to the NATO military mission in Afghanistan, offering eight helicopters to fill a key shortfall in the allied force of 41,000. The offer includes four aircraft for transport and four attack helicopters and a number of additional troops, Polish and NATO officials said.
