Guantanamo Bay personnel cited in 4 incidents confirmed by military

(CNN) -- A U.S. military investigation has found four incidents in which guards at the Guantanamo Bay prison mishandled the Quran, but said that it was detainees who threw the Muslim holy book in the toilet.
The report said it confirmed four times when U.S. personnel at the base mishandled the Quran: guards kicked a detainee's Quran; a guard's urine "splashed" a detainee and his holy book after coming through an air vent; and a guard water balloon fight that resulted in two detainees' Qurans getting wet.
In a fifth confirmed incident, it could not be determined whether a guard or a detainee wrote a two-word obscenity in a Quran.
On Saturday, the White House said the incidents were isolated and do not reflect the behavior of the majority of military personnel.
"Our men and women in the military adhere to the highest standards, including when it comes to respecting and protecting religious freedom," spokesman Scott McClellan said. "The military expects its high standards to be met, and does not tolerate or condone it when individuals do not -- as this report makes clear."

Boy, I just can't get enough of these Koran desecration stories- fascinating. I expect the Pentagon will have a press conference if a GI sneezes on the Koran.

A car bomb has exploded outside a Shiite mosque in a town south of Baghdad, killing five people and wounding 19, most of them children, hospital officials say.
Wrap it in bacon then fit it with some red lacy panties.
If only someone would market Koran toilet paper.
I'm starting to smell MANDATORY "Koran" etiquette and sensitivity classes in the U.S. military. WE NEED TO KEEP OURSELVES FROM FALLING INTO THE 'RATS' AND MSM'S GIRLYMAN TRAP.
The Koran is shit. MohaMMED NEEDED A ARMY TO CONQUER MECCA.
They'd have a fatwa on their asses faster as you can say "holy shiite."
Let's just take the toilet paper away from the Gitmo prisoners and substitute it with ripped-out koran pages.
Separated at birth?
I guess the MSM just isn't getting enough mileage out of Abu Gharib any more so they have to invent another breathless story.
Who cares? It's just a damn book.
Praise be to allah that there were no reports of any korans being damaged.
Reading the Koran is mishandling it. Flushing it down the toilet only does harm to the toilet.
Welcome to the world of PC. I wonder if we can ever crawl out of that hole?
Hummm, I agree. I think you misunderstood...I was thanking Texas Eagle for the picture of the WTC as a reminder, just in case there are those that are going soft on this issue.
I usually refrain from commenting on these threads as I do not want to get banned. Personally, we should not be having these problems, as my theory is take no prisoners. Therefore, no Gitmo, no terrorists incarcerated that we provide special meals AND supply the damn book for. I know, I know, they provide valuable intel...I will stop here.
Didn't the prisoners threw feces at the guards?
Thank you for posting the 9/11 Towers pictures. As sick as it makes my heart, I NEED to see it.
Not just feces, Holy Islamic Feces. You have desacrated the most holiest of allah the feces in allahs creation. Only Mooslimes should be allowed to handle the holy feces of Eyeslime.
Silly me, I always thought that they just came smelling like urine.
How many times has this been posted now?
Initially they claimed that it got 'flushed'.
Well, that wasn't rue.
So they kept harping about it.
Fine, they want 'desecration', how about them blowing up one of their own mosques?
Pixx on the Koran!... or whatever. Their second most religious book, requires them to spread their religion by the sword - you either convert, pay a tax or die A religion of peace indeed - peace on all their books and them as well.
CNN be damned. Take the freaking Korans, Qurans, whatever away from every criminal. Have it piped into them 24-7, read by someone like Barbara Streisand or Jeanine Garafalo. I'm sick to death of the U. S. media treating murderous scum like religious martyrs.
Please see this -> link <- for a short list of FReepers who have done so and yet somehow still managed to not get banned.
Well, one is read from the front to the back, and one is read from the back to the front. It's the binding that's identical: read and believe, and you're bound for Hell. .
The Saudi's and the Saudi Government can confiscate and burn the Bible all day long, but let one Koran be slightly disturbed, and the whole world ignites. I'm sorry if I refuse to be aggravated by never ending stories of "koran abuse".
Reference Link to my statement:
When did the Koran and Islam become so holy and mighty that it dominates the respect market?
When Islam pays the exact same amount of respect towards my faith and my Bible as I am demanded to pay to them, I'll listen to their criticism.
' just the Bible '
Precisely! Where are all the stories condemning the killing of Christians. Moreover, where WAS Amnesty International and the liberal media when Saddam was killing Muslims?
Thanks Leapfrog. Mighty impressive list so I guess I'm in good company. ;*)
You are now.
My thoughts exactly.
