    It doesn't seem to matter that the story was retracted. Nor does it matter that the government had investigated those 'reports' and found most were not verifiable, and those where may have been some incident, well those came from inadvertent knocking a copy on the floor or placing one on a television set. Then of course there were incidents like this:

    Now comes this news, from on the ground in the Middle East:

    It is more than mere hypocrisy. The riots and killings are part of a calculated anti-democratic and anti-American political and military campaign by radical Islamic Fundamentalists. The very last thing that the Islamofascists want is the success of the American foreign policy objective of Middle East democracy. American foreign policy objectives directly contradict the barbaric 8th century religious totalitarianism espoused by radical Islamic fundamentalists. This is why any pretext is seized to perpetrate violence and blame it on the Americans. The Gitmo story was a convenient excuse.

    The American government apparently has absolutlely NO idea on how to issue a policy statement regarding Islamo-facism that carries any weight.
