If you head over to the ACLU page and scroll down to the date 3/28/03 (yes, March 2003 - over 2 years ago) you will find this nugget of information near the bottom of the paragraph...
...REDACTED was informed that his case for the proper treatment of the Qur'an had been taken to higher levels and presented as a serious issue. The effort had been hurt, however, because it had been found that detainees were hiding things within the pages of the Qur'an. As a result, the guards were required to look through the Qur'an for their own safety. REDACTED was asked if he could assure camp officials that none of the detainees would ever hide any objects of any kind in their Qur'ans. He stated he could not. [emph mine--ed.]
Oh my, oh my, they've been bad boys. Seems they're trying to hide weapons in their copies of the holy book itself! Now I wonder why this has gotten no attention whatsoever. It seems to me, the MSM is going to great lengths to tell us what nice laid back guys are being detained at Gitmo.
This is the first I've heard of the dangers being faced by those who are guarding these terrorists and terrorist wannabes. I suppose if one of the Marines gets killed or severely injured... it should be chalked up to pursuing a dangerous profession... right? These aren't nice guys in this prison - and those doing the guarding have every right to ensure their own safety.
