Life in the Information Age

It's getting kind of hard to keep up with this story, isn't it?

FBI Records Cite Quran Abuse Allegations
"Formerly Secret FBI Records Cite Detainee Allegations of Quran Abuse at Guantanamo."
FBI Confirms Abuse, False Claims
"Detainees lied about treatment, papers say."
Investigators Confirm Five Cases of Quran 'Mishandling' at Guantanamo, but None Flushed in Toilet
"Investigators Confirm Five Cases of Quran 'Mishandling' at Guantanamo, but None Flushed in Toilet."

Newsweek Standard Doesn’t Apply to Bush Administration
More Bush Administration hypocrisy.

More on the Pentagon's Koran Fib
"Last week Di Rita said there were no credible allegations and, thus, nothing to investigate. Yet today Hood disclosed there were 13 "incidents of alleged mishandling of the Koran," and five were confirmed. It turns out that not only were there credible allegations, there were actual "incidents." Would Di Rita care to explain this? Would he care to retract his briefing, apologize, and promise to do better? Anyone in the WHite House care to express outrage over Di Rita's untruthful assertion?"
