Phi Beta Iota: NATO training of Afghan police a failure.  The inability of all NATO participants, not just the US participants, to understand the Afghan culture and train, equip, and organize accordingly, is the primary reason for the continued failure at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels.  Remarkably, the OSS.Net Afghanistan study is still in demand, as the only other useful document now available is the USMC culture study.  Combined with the 120 day rotation cycle and the absolute naivete of those being cycled in, Afghanistan is a failure across the board.
