What are we splitting hairs here?!

As the obscenities of America's behavior in the Iraq... well, whatever it is Bush and his cronies are calling it now... as these obscenities roll in, the laughs have to come with them. I mean, who do these cretins think they're fooling? "No, we never defaced the Quran or made this a religious thing. Ever.' Then they clarify this with the following:

U.S.: Gitmo Quran Was Splashed With Urine
By ROBERT BURNS, AP Military Writer

WASHINGTON - U.S. military officials say no guard at the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects flushed a detainee's Quran down the toilet, but they disclosed that a Muslim holy book was splashed with urine. In other newly disclosed incidents, a detainee's Quran was deliberately kicked and another's was stepped on.

Flushed or pissed on, our military is behaving badly and at someone's orders. Yes, I'm looking in your direction, Commander In Chief. What kind of excuse is this for attacking a region's belief system? What kind of an excuse is it for making a mockery of peace, justice and tolerance... three things Americans take pride in?
