"The Pentagon on Friday released new details about mishandling of the Quran at the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects," reports the Associated Press, "confirming that a soldier deliberately kicked the Muslim holy book and that an interrogator stepped on a Quran and was later fired for 'a pattern of unacceptable behavior.'

"In other confirmed incidents, water balloons thrown by prison guards caused an unspecified number of Qurans to get wet; a guard's urine came through an air vent and splashed on a detainee and his Quran; and in a confirmed but ambiguous case a two-word obscenity was written in English on the inside cover of a Quran."

(Salon)

Entire Republican party (in unison): "Hey, it was just a little piss... what's the big deal?"
