"The Damage Is Done"

Paul Marshall writes in National Review Online that “Even if Newsweek publishes a full retraction, the damage is done”:

Much of the Muslim world will regard [a retraction] merely as a cover-up and feel reconfirmed in the view that America is at war with Islam. It will undercut the U.S., including in Afghanistan and Iraq, far more than Abu Ghraib did.
