Somebody Tell Howard Kurtz! WP Caught Being "Irresponsible"!
Kurtz, who is currently busy helping BushCo beat up on Newsweek for reporting stories of Koran defiling in Guantanamo toilets, must be unaware that his own newspaper has reported on Koran-toilet incidents suffered by Gitmo prisoners:
Ehsannullah, 29, said American soldiers who initially questioned him in Kandahar before shipping him to Guantanamo Bay had hit him and taunted him by dumping his Koran in a toilet. "It was a very bad situation for us," said Ehsannullah, who comes from the home region of Taliban leader Mohammad Omar. "We cried so much and shouted: 'Please do not do that to the Holy Koran!' "In this case, the Koran-defiling happened before the prisoner was transferred to Gitmo. But BushCo's trying to get us to believe that no Koran-trashing was ever done anywhere by US forces.
This episode is beyond cynical. War is peace. Truth is slavery. Truth is lies.
