A state-run security force in Afghanistan cannot perform even basic functions and is charging the Obama administration for some services it is not providing, a U.S. government watchdog reported Tuesday.
KABUL, AFGHANISTAN | The Afghan government is giving companies extensions ranging from a few weeks to 90 days to change from private security guards to a government-run force, officials said Sunday.
