UPDATE: Whoa, there, folks

Quran ‘mishandling’ verified at Guantanamo: But prison commander says no evidence supports flushing report

The AP on MSNBC.com:

WASHINGTON – U.S. officials have substantiated five cases in which military guards or interrogators mishandled the Quran of Muslim prisoners at Guantanamo Bay but found “no credible evidence” to confirm a prisoner’s report that a holy book was flushed in a toilet, the prison’s commander said Thursday.

See? Newsweek IS vindicated!

UPDATE: Nyah, nyah, nyahh, nyah, nahhhh, nyah!

UPDATE 2: As you may or may not have realized, I was being slightly sarcastic in my original comment and (especially) the first update above. However, I don’t believe that the Washington Post is being sarcastic at all. This is their headline for this latest Koran story:


Legacy Media has become a caricature of itself.

There are many who are applauding this. I, for one, do not. At least not unless the downfall of Legacy Media will give birth to a new, more responsible, more dependable media.

UPDATE 3: Unfortunately, this story continues to roll. More here.
