ABSTRACT
The article discusses the media portrayal of the U.S. war in Afghanistan. The author argues that the negative portrayal of the war in journalism outlets such as WikiLeaks and "Rolling Stone" magazine has ultimately served to support the war effort rather than weaken it. The author also discusses a "Time" magazine cover showing a disfigured Afghan woman and implies that it fits in with the CIA's alleged aim to use Afghan women as a propaganda device in combating the Taliban.
