Skip to comments.[Gitmo] Jailers Splashed Koran with Urine: Pentagon
Posted on 06/03/2005 6:29:10 PM PDT by gopwinsin04
American jailers at the Guantanamo prison base for foreign terrorism suspects splashed a Koran with urine, kicked and stepped on the Islamic holy book and soaked it in water, the US Military said on Friday.
US Southern Command, responsible for the prision at the US Naval base at Guananamo bay, Cuba, described for the first time five cases of 'mishandling' of the Koran by US personnel confirmed by a newly completed military inquiry, said officials in a statement.

Reuters parroting AP. Yippee-skip, no new source.
I didn't see any mention of urine in the AP report, Drudge is running this now...
So the Newsweek report was -- for all intents and purposes -- accurate?
No, jailor splashed man with urine. He happened to be holding a Koran
"So the Newsweek report was -- for all intents and purposes -- accurate?"
Guess how many Koran's were destroyed?
I hate so called Reporters!
Only accurate in the sense that there were bodily functions involved. No mention of toilets in the AP or Reuters reports...
Big deal.....my dog pees on the newspaper. Some things are just meant to be used for those purposes.....and the ignoble unholy koran is one of them.
Gotta love our "loyal" opposition in the press.
Seventy-four percent of those surveyed in Gallup's 2005 confidence poll said they have "a great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in the military - more than in a full range of other government, religious, economic, medical, business and news organizations........ The Gallup organization noted that public trust in television news and newspapers reached an all-time low this year, with 28 percent of responders expressing high confidence in them.
This has got to be HUGH over at DU. They're probably ecstatic.
Personally, I couldn't care less about this "report". If pissing on a book irks the guys that are trying to kill our guys, I'm all for it.
I wonder how many
bibles were in the World Trade Center deskd on 9/11 that were descreated?
Do they need urine donors?
May the leftwing media receive the same hell they are so clearly trying to bring down on our guys.
The press are LUNGING to get at this story.
FIVE cases of MISHANDLING! My GOD!
BTW, how many people did Saddam kill? Oh, right, that's old news. Kicking a book, now THAT is NEWS!
I guess dropping a Koran which we allow our prisoners to have puts us right up there equal with Al Qaeda, eh?
I really, really, really wish the press would get a clue.
Gitmo prisoners = suspected terrorists = Deserving of Sympathy, Amnesty/ACLU/etc. protection
Koran dropped = just as bad as being flushed down toilet
Dropping a book on five occassions = more outrage in press than OUR MILITARY PEOPLE BEING KILLED BY MUSLIMS!
This is a great example of the moral relativism being taught in our colleges, I guess.
Oh good, more dead Jihadis.
Only, when after the next terror attack, outraged Americans
riot and express their anger, and the world reviles us
for our unhumanity, the world can kiss my butt.
This is becoming very tiring.
lol! Politically incorrect humour alert...
The Newsweek report was about a Koran being dropped down a toilet. Does this article report that as being the case?
FYI, McG. It was the Pentagon that released the information, as I thought I heard initially.
Enough! We have Jesus with dung, we have Jesus in Urine and we have the Bible spit on etc. All of this was in the name of art paid for by our tax dollars. I am tired of this now. I don't care what they did to the Quran. Yep, you got it! Burn them for all I care for the real Quran represents intolerance and violence! Nuff said!
Not even any reports close to dropping Korans in the toilet. Newsweak still got the story factually wrong...
I don't believe this. The Muslims probably did this to keep the story(lies)going.
They are running with this as a way of saying "See! See! It's true!" But it's not. Nothing in the article supports the Newsweek story.
If there's something more offensive to the Muzzies that pissing on the Koran, we should find out what it is and then do it....
Nice, huh? We have to fight this crap tooth and nail. I hope people open their eyes and see how the left are trying to take over power and in the process, lose the war on terror and destroy this country.
Good thing Pvt. Natural Law wasn't on duty. I would have probably wiped my butt with it.
What Reuters is doing is something of a byproduct of the President's claim that "Islam is a religion of peace".
If one follows Bush's statement to its "logical" conclusion, one *should* be outraged if this story is true.
On the other hand, one who understands the statement is a lie is quite legitimately unconcerned.
I'm done caring about any of these "reports".
Robert Mapplethorpe is somewhere in NYC planning his next tax payer funded 'art exhibition.'
Check the information in post #11.
This country supports our military. They don't support the MSM.
They've tried for five years to take him down and have been unsuccessful. All they've gotten for their efforts is decreased majorities in the Senate and the House, as well as a tarnished MSM.
All this story will do is what it has down in past. Further cause a backlash against them.
I don't think it will stick. W's latest poll numbers are up again. I just think the left are pushing too hard. At the end of the day they've got nothing much. But there're 3 1/2 years left for them to try.
Not from the grave, he's not.
Boy do I hate the so called freedom of the press right now.
More to follow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not at all. We can be as angry as we want about this story, and the terrorists, but most Muslims aren't terrorists. Flame away, but it's the truth.
Americans are not that stupid
There way have been many innocent lives saved by dousing that Koran in urine in front of terrorist scum.
Well, I hope they pi**ed on it. That's all it's good for.....
To hell with it then. Yeah, you murdering bunch of moon rock worshipping idiots-this is what we think of your "holy" book. You gonna riot and kill more of each other in your feigned outrage? By all means, may the force be with ya and all that shit. Pass out extra ammo to our troopers and tell them to be hyper-vigilant. If there are any people who aren't aware that were engaged in a Holy war yet, they soon will be. Thanks to the liberal media.
Yes, it is. Maybe we should just declare Monday "National Pi$$ on the Qu'ran" Day and get it over with.
