Mishandling the Mishandling
Now that I trashed the Gulag comparison peddled by Amnesty International, allow me run to the defense the Koran allegations that have been causing such a fuss. In a perfectly timed Friday evening announcement, the Pentagon now admits that guards at Guantanamo have mishandled the Koran. Their version of the story is far less fiendish, but it still won't help with the public image of Guantanamo. Accidentally urinating on their holy book may not be the best way to win the hearts and minds of the Islamic world.
