Newsweek to recieve apology from White House
What a wonderful dream. The right wing press, the White House, the whole republican cess pit. The FBI has testimony from inmates that the Quran desecration and flushing did occur (WaPo had the initial story, from the ACLU's source, here are the blogs, ODub, AmericaBlog, Blah3, DKos, Think Progress).
From Blah3, An inmate interviewed in the FBI report says that the desecration never happened. I wonder if he got anything for it.
From the Washington Post,
Nearly a dozen detainees at the Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba told FBI interrogators that guards had mistreated copies of the Koran, including one who said in 2002 that guards "flushed a Koran in the toilet," according to new FBI documents released today.
The summaries of FBI interviews, obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union as part of an ongoing lawsuit, also include allegations that the Koran was kicked, thrown to the floor and withheld as punishment and that guards mocked Muslim prisoners during prayers.
