This clearly indicates the stupidity of the officers in charge to allow natives to witness this destruction. Un-freaking-believable!

Apparently someone found a Islamacist hate mail in a Koran in the library that Afghans being held for classification and potential charges as terrorists. The library staff then checked all Korans and other pubs (which ones I do not know) for Islamacist commentary penned into the margins or endsheets. All publications found to have such writings were removed. Here is the screw up. Instead of turning them over to intel or security for disposal the offending books were tossed into the regular trash and garbage in I guess a dumpster. It was emptied into a truck and hauled to the burn pit. At the burn pit some sharp eyed contractor spotted the Korans and ordered them recovered and bagged to be returned to US forces. It was while the char force was raking the burning trash/garbage that an Afghan national who was employed by the char force contractor hid one of the singed Korans in his caftan like garb and smuggled it out to show other of the Umma what the ‘infidels’ were doing to insult the ‘noble book’.
