Aesha's progress: Afghan woman's nose nearly complete

Frederick, Maryland (CNN) - In front of a mirror, Aesha Mohammadzai sees what is possible.

There, in the center of her face, is a nearly complete piece of herself - a piece she's been missing since the day she was mutilated nearly four years ago.

Since August 2010, when her image appeared on the cover of Time magazine, she's been known for what she didn't have. Her Taliban husband and in-laws hacked off her nose and ears as punishment for running away.

Her disfigured face became a symbol for oppressed women in Afghanistan, a reminder of what might come in spades if the Taliban regains control. (FULL STORY)

    I would advice the US to rectify its own victims of dis figuration in Iraq, like the thousands of kids disfigured due to incedianery and other things than worry about one girl. Your coverage of this girl is indicative of how desperate the US is to deny responsibility towards its own victims. This girl is just being grooed by the west to speak out against the taliban. A political tool to hav pity on.
