Wait A Second
If you were one of the few who read the actual Newsweek "Editors Note" on the Koran having been desecrated in Guantanamo (in the toilet), you might get a different impression than the way the story has been reported in the press. According to nearly everything on the wires now, this is being called this "an apology," admitting error or calling the the info just plain "wrong."
Turns out there was no apology from Newsweek, just regret for the dozen killed and very inconvenient dust having been kicked up. The supposed "error" relates to a minor clairification of detail from a key Bush Administration source who still "clearly recalled reading investigative reports (in Military docs) about mishandling the Qur'an, including a toilet incident." After the massive pressure put to bear, the source now says s/he can not be sure the info was in the final Pentagon report... perhaps just a Government Investigator report. SO WHAT!!! THIS IS NOT AN APOLOGY!!
What the hell is going on media?? Are we supposed to feel good and think the world is going to forget about this just because the Pentagon brass did not choose to include this in their final report on abuses in Gitmo? This is information that was reported in the Western press more than once already... by innocents (one a journalist) who were let free... as well as corroborated in some sort of official military report - by a Bush Official. But it didn't make it in the final Southcom report. What a suprise considering the forthrightness we have come to expect from the Pentagon.
