ACLU Continues Attacks on Military

A little article in the MSM with no credible sources (unless you count the words of a terrorist over that of US Military Personnel) is now making headlines from Great Britain to Pakistan.

This from Little Green Footballs yesterday…

Amazing. Mainstream media is determined to give the jihadis a weapon they can exploit to the fullest, and the ACLU is right with them: FBI memo reports Guantanamo guards flushing Koran.

Notice once again: this story originates with an anonymous source whose complaint was investigated and not found to be credible—and more importantly, Islamists are specifically trained to make claims like this.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – An FBI agent wrote in a 2002 document made public on Wednesday that a detainee held at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had accused American jailers there of flushing the Koran down a toilet.

The Pentagon said the allegation was not credible.

The newly released document, dated Aug. 1, 2002, contained a summary of statements made days earlier by a detainee, whose name was redacted, in two interviews with an FBI special agent, whose name also was withheld, at the Guantanamo prison for foreign terrorism suspects.

The American Civil Liberties Union released the memo and other FBI documents it obtained from the government under court order through the Freedom of Information Act.

Today the allegations are spread from the BBC, to Aljazeera, to The Pakistani, to…

Do you suppose that the ACLU and Human Rights Watch got together for a combined attack on the US yesterday? Or is this just their way of mourning the news about Al Zarqawi?
