Victims about whom we are told nothing

We now know the name - Sergeant Robert Bates - of the US soldier who, it appears, murdered 16 Afghan civilians.

We know the name of his lawyer and where the soldier comes from.

We have heard from his family and from others about why he probably did it and how nice he really is.

I suspect we will never be told the names of the men, women and children he killed and burnt because no one outside their village can be bothered to ask.
