Krauthammer on Gitmo

leave a comment »

For those who might still be weeping over the detainees at Gitmo and the alleged Koran abuse, Charles Krauthammer wields an effective cluebat.

Moreover, what were the Korans doing there in the first place? The very possibility of mishandling Korans arose because we gave them to each prisoner. What kind of crazy tolerance is this? Is there any other country that would give a prisoner precisely the religious text that that prisoner and those affiliated with him invoke to justify the slaughter of innocents?

If the prisoners had to have reading material, I would have given them the book “Portraits 9/11/01” — vignettes of the lives of those massacred on Sept. 11. Why this abjectness on our part? On the very day the braying mob in Pakistan demonstrated over the false Koran report in Newsweek, a suicide bomber blew up an Islamic shrine in Islamabad, destroying not just innocent men, women and children, but undoubtedly many Korans as well. Not a word of condemnation. No demonstrations.

Read it all.

Update It’s Gitmo day apparently. Here’s Michelle Malkin.
