    What should we expect from a few 60's/70's drug culture rebellious leftists?

    I think the intent was to tell a story that might answer some of the questions as to why and how an otherwise nice young person would become a mass murderer/terrorist.

    Unfortunately in judging a book by its cover, a person might assume the Rolling Stone was glorifying this guy and by extension terrorism. Part of the problem is with the picture itself which greatly resembles a cover pic of Jim Morrison done many years ago.

    Not all media stories are what you want to see or read about.

    I believe Rolling Stone magazine is getting several million dollars worth of free press on this deal, they are eating the media attention up. JMHO

    Scary...the one of many faces of Terrorism, a murderer. It's just on the cover of the wrong magazine.

    I used to buy Rolling Stones mag but I'm way past the demographic.

    I also think putting a terrorists face on the cover is poor judgment and disgusting. I know they think their cause is noble but I personally think it's going to do more harm than good.

    High praise to the stores that are refusing to sell this issue.

    The lead singer of the group "Disturbed" just unloaded a can of whoopass on Rolling Stone magazine. Just epic.

    Did anybody read the story where the 33 year-old RoStone reporter who "outed" General McChrystal died in a fiery car accident?
