Who's Lying Now?

The Right are crowing and sneering about Newsweek "having to retract" their riot-inducing story about American interrogators desecrating the Koran at Gitmo. There's just one GD problem here, folks; Newsweek's story is TRUE. Human Rights Watch reported in October 2004 (via):

Detainees also complained about the interference with their ability to pray and the lack of respect given to their religion. For example, the British detainees state that they were never given prayer mats and initially were not provided Korans. They also complained that when the Korans were provided, the guards “would kick the Koran, throw it into the toilet and generally disrespect it.”

They can't handle the truth, so they lie, they lie, they lie.

And how many thousands - millions? - of Americans will die because of it.
