Magazine Cover of Disfigured Afghan Stokes Debate

Date: August 4, 2010

QUOTE: Reaction to the Time cover [of an Afghan woman whose nose and ears have been cut off] has become something of an Internet litmus test about attitudes toward the war, and what America’s responsibility is in Afghanistan. Critics of the American presence in Afghanistan call it “emotional blackmail” and even “war porn,” while those who fear the consequences of abandoning Afghanistan see it as a powerful appeal to conscience.
