FBI Supports Newsweek's Claim

For all of those who were screaming bloody-murder over Newsweek's story about Quran desecration, The Peach would now like to introduce evidence supporting Newsweek's initial allegations. A report from none other than the FBI is now stating that interrogators as early as April of 2002, four months after the first detainees arrived, abused detainees and desecrated the Quran.

One detainee was quoted as telling the FBI that guards would routinely beat detainees and that there was in fact an instance when a guard "flushed a Quran down the toilet." This after the White House and Pentagon vehemently denounced Newsweek's account of abuses at Guantanamo Bay.

Coincidentally, on the same day as the release of the FBI report, Amnesty International in its annual report called the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo "the gulag of our time" urging Washington to shut down the prison camp.

So, it seems that Newsweek had it right all along.
