Michael Yon on the difficulties faced in Afghanistan

This report from the always in-the-know Michael Yon seems to suggest that we are relying too much on combat troops rather than special forces in Afghanistan.  This seems right to me.  The Afghans don't like the Taliban and God knows they can fight.  Putting more emphasis on training the AFA seems an obvious move, especially after it seems to have worked in the much less promising situation presented by Iraq.
