Afghan forces' apathy starts to wear on U.S. platoon in Kandahar

As the U.S. military sets out to secure cities including Kandahar, it is relying far more heavily on Afghan forces than at any time in the past nine years, when the American mission focused mainly on defeating the Taliban in the countryside, rather than securing the population. But the Afghan forces are proving poorly equipped and sometimes unmotivated, breeding the same frustration U.S. troops felt in Iraq when they began building up security forces beset by corruption, sectarianism, political meddling and militia infiltration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe the Afghani are not willing to abuse their fellow citizens for the benefit of a foreign power.

In this they are clearly superior to the US Congress!
