The Article

You can find it here; it's a good read.  It's very narrowly aimed at the issue of women's rights, which makes a lot more sense than my initial reaction of, "Is Time actually advocating a 'stay the course' attitude???"  It's important to remember that there are more issues at stake in any decision than the most obvious one.  I think about it now, actually, and NPR spends a *lot* of time talking about the women's rights issue in Afghanistan as well.  Like Time, however, they tend to couch it in terms of how dangerous Karzai's reintegration plan is for real democracy.  It's definitely a valid point though.
