Add this to the list of outcomes from General Stanley McChrystal's impolitic remarks in the pages of Rolling Stone: a refocusing of online commentary on U.S. conduct of the war in Afghanistan. Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism analyzed last week's Twitter and blog conversations and found that "27% of the news links on blogs and 10% on Twitter were about Afghanistan."

For blogs, at least, that's the highest level of interest in Afghanistan since last January, when Pew started keeping track.
