Clichés come to life: Where there's smoke...

[via Tom Tomorrow, emphasis added]
In January 2003, the U.S. military issued guidelines to personnel at the base outlining how to handle and inspect detainees' Korans.

The memorandum included the order: "Ensure that the Koran is not placed in offensive areas such as the floor, near the toilet or sink, near the feet or dirty/wet areas."

"The guidelines didn't come out of nowhere. You don't get such orders unless there's some problem, concern or controversy," a U.S. official, who asked not to be named, said.
Hmmm... another unnamed source. Could it be they're afraid of retaliation for speaking the truth?
