This is some really creative stuff the Pentagon is feeding us:
The most recent, and perhaps strangest, case of mishandling was documented on March 25, 2005, when a detainee complained to the guards that urine came through an air vent in his cell and “splashed on him and his Koran while he laid near the air vent.” According to Hood’s investigation, the guard who was responsible reported himself to his superiors and was reassigned to gate duty. The detainee was given a new uniform and Koran.
“The guard had left his observation area post and went outside to urinate,” according to a summary of the incident. “He urinated near an air vent and the wind blew his urine through the vent into the block.”
I have no snark sufficient to the task. It speaks for itself. I’m just glad they have finally admitted:
that soldiers and interrogators kicked the Muslim holy book, got copies wet, stood on a Koran during an interrogation
I doubt Newsweek will receive an apology.
