    1. Journalist and author Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting, the George Polk Award for foreign reporting, the Selden Ring Award for investigative reporting, and a special Human Rights in Media Award from the International League for Human Rights.

    2. A remarkably well detailed and research on how a country came to be controlled by a terrorist and how the world media and governments missed it, or did not care.The suffering of the population was on a scale with Darfur or Rawanda, yet it never made the conscience of the wine and brie circuit. This failure lead to the most horrific act of terrorism.
