The Pentagon on Friday released new details about mishandling of the Quran at the Guantanamo Bay prison for terror suspects, confirming that a soldier deliberately kicked the Muslim holy book and that an interrogator stepped on a Quran and was later fired for "a pattern of unacceptable behavior."Yes, I'm pretty certain it is merely coincidental that the information was released on a Friday evening. Sure it was.
In other confirmed incidents, water balloons thrown by prison guards caused an unspecified number of Qurans to get wet; a guard's urine came through an air vent and splashed on a detainee and his Quran; and in a confirmed but ambiguous case, a two-word obscenity was written in English on the inside cover of a Quran.

An after hours release by the Pentagon
Friday afternoon. After 5pm. And the Pentagon decides it might be time to release new info about Gitmo and the Quran.
