Frank Rich on desecrating the Koran

The Newsweek report, regardless of the authenticity of its source, was not the first report of US soldiers aggressively disrespecting the religion of their captives in order to break them down mentally.

I was involved in a good discussion about the Newsweek report on desecration of the Koran by US soldiers over at Hyperbole Online.

Frank Rich's column today is a great discussion of the issue.

I've added this to my list of things to write; to try and get my thoughts in order about this exploitation of religious feelings in the interest of interrogation and/or torture. Frank Rich provides a number of examples that I had worried existed but didn't previously know for certain.
