The White House is attempting to downplay the recent revelations about Koran abuse at Guantanamo Bay.

So what else is new? When Newsweek was forced to retract its story about the Muslim holy book getting flushed down a toilet, Bush officials made a big deal about explaining how such a thing could never happen. The United States had too much respect for Islam for such a thing to happen. But now that confirmed reports are starting to emerge, well, the alternative would be to come right out and admit that, golly by gosh, maybe Newsweek was right after all!

But that would mean admitting that Bush was wrong! And I think we all understand that no matter what new evidence may surface, or what photos may emerge, or what confirmed reports may turn up in the future, there's not a chance in hell that the White House will ever admit that it was wrong.
