WMD VS. KORAN FLUSHING: NO COMPARISON
I must take issue with pundits comparing the Newsweek's "flushing the Koran" story to the Bush administration's WMD story. I don't recall 14 UN resolutions demanding that we stop defacing the Koran. Neither have I heard any other country's intelligence agency revealing that they believe the US has defaced a Koran. Finally, there are the dead bodies of the people killed by WMD in Iraq. I don't know how to compare this one to the alleged desecration of the Koran, unless someone produces the flushed pages. The difference is this: It has been proven that Saddam had WMD at some point, while no proof that any US personnel at Gitmo flushed a Koran down the toilet has been offered. Anyone comparing the two is off base.
