To Jamie

Jamie, It's not bias to report both sides of a story - it's journalism. I'm surprised that anyone would be so blinkered as to read this report and accuse its author of prejudice or favouring one side. As I read it I picked up Michael's desire to tell the truth about what he finds, and the deep conflict within himself about what is good, right and appropriate to publish. I think we should be grateful for such responsible journalism, especially when most of the media seems to like shock and awe reporting, whatever the story. Michael, Thanks once again for your journalism. I continue to read everything you report with interest and with sadness at the situations in Afghanistan, and the price being paid on both sides.
