Who’s Abusing the Koran?

Jimmy carter thinks we should shut down Gitmo – but then, I should think Carter proved beyond reasonable doubt a quarter century ago that he knows absolutely nothing about dealing with Islamic fanatics. That having been said, it turns out that there was significant abuse of the Koran at Gitmo:

Brig. Gen. Jay Hood’s internal investigation has uncovered some shocking incidents. On at least six occasions, Korans were ripped up. They were urinated on three times, and attempts were made to flush them down the toilet at least three other times. Why aren’t millions of Muslims rioting in response to these defilements? Because the perpetrators were prisoners, not guards. As John Hinderaker notes on weeklystandard.com, the most serious desecrations of the Koran at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility were committed by the Muslim inmates themselves.

Gee, kind of makes that whole outrage thing look a mite trumped up.
