Foreign Policy in Focus;5/25/2010, p6
The authors look at the possibility that the U.S. military occupation of Iraq would continue after 2011. They point out that the decreased U.S. media coverage of the Iraq war would mean the unavailability of updated information on the progress of the planned reduction of U.S. troops in Iraq. They emphasize that information about the status of Iraq is necessary to understand policy implications. They note that the U.S. mainstream media has forsaken the Iraqis when many journalists were withdrawn from Iraq.
