In One Eye

This just seems a bit too convenient.
A prisoner at Guantanamo Bay who complained that a military guard threw a Quran holy book in the toilet has since recanted the story, senior Pentagon officials said Thursday.

The prisoner, who made his complaint in an FBI interrogation in July 2002, is one of several quoted in newly released documents as saying that U.S. military personnel desecrated the Qurans of Muslim detainees at the prison.
Hmm ... senior Pentagon officials, eh? "Their" names couldn't possibly rhyme with "Fumsreld," could they? It's not as if the prisoner, who, lest we forget, has been allowed no civil rights during his incarceration, will ever be allowed to see in print, his "retraction."

This is just too easy for the Bushies.
