Lost in all of the hullabaloo over "desecration" of the Koran by gaurds at Camp Delta, and the "gulag-ish" way we run our detention facilities, is the rampant desecration of muslim symbology by the detainees themselves and insurgents in Iraq.
At Gitmo, detainee desecration of the Koran appears to outpace guards by three to one, and insurgents in Iraq use mosques as bases, if not blowing them up, and booby-trap the Koran, their precious book, with IED's.
Of course, accusing American troops of torture and desecration is right in the al-Qaida manual.
...here's what the manual tells terrorists who get captured and detained somewhere - say, Gitmo: "brothers must insist on proving that torture was inflicted on them," and, "complain about mistreatment in prison."
Riestenberg says, "They are following it to a T. Call me crazy, but it seems to me to be evidence that they are probably al-Qaida. If they follow the manual, they've probably read it."
He can't understand why the American press is so eager to believe terrorists and amplify their accusations, rather than trust our military.
It appears that al-Qaida is well aware of the coalition of suckers in this country that gleefully eat up these accusations in their hunger for anything to use against the war effort. I wonder if there will ever come a day when they realize they got played like a virgin on prom night.
Somehow I doubt it. Like the young, inexperienced lover, they will probably look back with something akin to romantic bliss, all the while nothing more than a locker room exploit, the trophy of manipulative bullies keeping score on a bedpost somewhere.
