What is your opinion on the corn ethanol fuel vs food debate?

From what I understand,when ethanol is made from corn,the leftover product is distillers grain,which is used for animal feed.So if most of the corn grown in this country is used for animal feed anyway,and animal feed is still being produced from the same corn that is used to make ethanol,what is the issue?What am I missing?I noticed in anti-corn ethanol articles that distillers grain is not mentioned,which seems very fishy.I am trying to educate myself more on this,so I would appreciate your take on this if you have an opinion.Thanks
