I stand by my previous blog entry. I have no evidence except past incidents where the Administration has strong-armed people who attempted to tell the truth and as far as I'm concerned, the same has now happened to Newsweek. I could cite numerous examples but if you've gotten this far on my blog, I trust you have already educated yourselves. Nothing criminals do should surprise us. For people who lie about WMD, this is small potatoes.
Report of Koran Desecration May Have Been Wrong, Newsweek Says
WASHINGTON - Newsweek magazine on Sunday said it may have erred in a May 9 report that said U.S. interrogators desecrated the Koran at Guantanamo Bay, and apologized to victims of deadly violence sparked by the article.
The weekly news magazine said in its May 23 edition that the original source of the allegation was not sure where he saw the assertion that at least one copy of the Koran was flushed down a toilet in an attempt to get detainees to talk.
"We regret that we got any part of our story wrong, and extend our sympathies to victims of the violence and to the U.S. soldiers caught in its midst," Editor Mark Whitaker wrote in the magazine's latest issue, due to appear on U.S. newsstands on Monday.
