Should Time Magazine have asked ‘What happens if we stay in Afghanistan?’

Time Magazine: We Cannot Leave Afghanistan, by Peter Hart

In case you thought the WikiLeaks story might change everything: The forthcoming Time magazine (out tomorrow) has a cover photo of a disfigured Afghan woman with the headline “What Happens If We Leave Afghanistan.”

The implication would seem to be that the Taliban will commit similar atrocities without the presence of U.S. forces. You can see the cover (and a portion of the story) here.

Something tells me that no one at a the magazine’s editorial meeting suggested a “What Happens If We Stay in Afghanistan” cover headline, which would have been accompanied by a photo of the corpse of an Afghan child killed in an airstrike or a house raid.
