    I just wrote up alot of my answer in a response to one of your earlier comments I  just posted, but here's a quick response to this.  Iraq sucked all the oxygen out of any awareness of Afghanistan in America - in the media, public opinion, the government, you name it.  Only since this summer, when more Americans started dying per month in Afghanistan than in Iraq, has Afghanistan crept back into our minds.  And the people on my list are pretty widely interviewed, at least as far as current coverage of Afghanistan allows them to be.  But as for the "why do you think it is we aren't getting the appropriate information" - that's one of the great existential questions of our age.
