How can I learn Dari?

Hi everyone,

I have a good friend in Kabul, Afghanistan who speak Dari, which is an eastern sister language to Farsi; There must be materials out there for me to learn Dari but I'm having a hard time finding them!
I'd rather not learn Farsi if I'm able to find Dari materials. Anyone have any suggestions?
I found a site where you can write out the Dari alphabet but that's about it.

For learning: Persian (Farsi)
Base language: English

    I understand that civilian versions of both "Tactical Dari" and "Tactical Pashto" either now exist or will soon become available to non-US Government customers. Details on released / soon-to-be-released products may also be available at this URL:
