In Other Black Friday News...

Afghani protests over desecration of the Koran at Guantanamo have spread into Pakistan (Associated Press). According to NEWSWEEK, interrogators at the Cuba prison placed copies of the Koran in bathrooms, and "flushed a holy book down the toilet."

Secretary of State Condi Rice told a Senate subcommittee "Disrespect for the holy Koran is not now, nor has it ever been, nor will it ever be tolerated by the United States. Our military authorities are investigating these allegations fully. If they are proven true, we will take appropriate action."

Since there's likely no existing evidence that Donald Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzalez, or any general officer ever specifically authorized flushing a copy of the Koran down the toilet, expect to see another private go down the toilet over this one.
