    Nabi Misdaq, a Washington-based Afghanistan analyst tells Al Jazeera's Ghida Fakhry that the Afghan Local Police, a security focre separate from the national police force, was improperly modeled after traditional Pashtun practice of army recruitment.

    "If they don't understand the Arbakai system and how it operates within the tribal areas, they will never get it right" and the so-called "green-on-blue" insider attacks will continue to happen, said Misdaq.
