More deceit from the ACLU, via Whizbang!:
 
The ACLU released a FBI memo that contains a prisoners report of a Guantanamo guard flushing a Koran.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – An FBI agent wrote in a 2002 document made public on Wednesday that a detainee held at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had accused American jailers there of flushing the Koran down a toilet.

 
The Pentagon said the allegation was not credible.
 
…The newly released document, dated Aug. 1, 2002, contained a summary of statements made days earlier by a detainee, whose name was redacted, in two interviews with an FBI special agent, whose name also was withheld, at the Guantanamo prison for foreign terrorism suspects.
 

The American Civil Liberties Union released the memo and other FBI documents it obtained from the government under court order through the Freedom of Information Act.

I’ve seen various sites claim that Newsweek is vindicated, nothing could be further from the truth.–Whizbang!
 
Note, in other accounts, that the detainee who initially made the claim has recanted. Well, of course.  Consider the spin-source—ACLU: Any Criminal Lie Used.  See the rest at Whizbang!
