Afghan security firms outlast deadline

Order issued in 2010 for contractors to hand over to state-run authority in four months has been repeatedly put off.

President Hamid Karzai signed a decree in August 2010 giving them four months to hand over to a new government controlled security force.

But that deadline keeps getting pushed back, as Bernard Smith reports from Kabul.
