Apples to Apples at Guantanamo 

The Washington Post circled the wagons this morning with a story meant to protect Newsweek's story about "Koran Abuse." Carefully crafting a flashy headline to disguise a misleading and much less interesting story, the Post cites claims from 2002 that Koran abuse, and other prisoner abuse (the Koran is being held captive at Gitmo? Interesting...), were widespread at Guantanamo.
The summaries of FBI interviews, obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union as part of an ongoing lawsuit, include a dozen allegations that the Koran was kicked, thrown to the floor or withheld as punishment.

Ah, the heart felt sympathy with which the Post describes the "ravaging" of the Koran. Too bad its not true (here too). They ignore the fact that several detainees made high profile allegations, then provided no specific examples of abuse, and admitted never having actually seeing the abuse go on. One even claimed the guards were fornicating with the detainees' mothers! Come on, this is what is taken for a credible source by the Post these days? What happened to the last shreds of journalistic integrity? They published this story without even knowing if any of the allegations made are substantiated. And more importantly, even if they are true, WHO CARES?
Its time for people to examine this issue for what it actually is. Koran abuse didn't start at Guantanamo, it started with the terrorists who manipulated the holy book of Islam to justify crashing planes into buildings, murdering innocent children across the middle east, and conducting an un-"holy" war against western civilization for grievances, real and contrived, that range as far back as the crusades. We owe the religion of these terrorists (which is not Islam, and this should not be confused with such a statement on Islam at large) no more respect than we owe there entire backward, theocratic, chauvinistic, anti-western ideology. While the MSM fights to uncover the horrors taking place at the hands of the US military, the Patriot Act, the Bush administration Gestapo, the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts, we are in the midst of new operations in Iraq, seeking to eradicate more of the type of person who is currently contained in Guantanamo. Hopefully they will be killed in the action, so that they don't have to endure the "terrors" of Guantanamo. When will the media and the American left learn who the enemy is?

If you'll all remember, it was Newsweek that recently published this same story and was condemned for it. Now it's the Washington Post, and citing no more credible "witnesses" than did Newsweek. Now it should surprise no one to know that the Washington Post owns Newsweek magazine. Uh, hello 'Post, didn't you learn your lesson? I guess not.
I want to know what these terrorists are even doing with the Koran in the first place! They should all be out pounding rocks, too busy to read!

The msm will never see who America's real enemies are. For sadly they would have to count themselves among the worst of the enemy ranks.
