The present war on terror

By Aussiegirl

And if you want to read the rules of the present war on terror, go here and read the DOJ rules on proper procedures for handling the Koran in Gitmo.

I would call this a definite case of the abuse of human rights -- of the American guards who are subjected to these degrading rules.

"Handle the Koran as if it were a fragile piece of art." about sums it up -- that comes after the bit about using white gloves and showing proper reverence and respect, and handling primarily with the right hand because of the cultural associations with the use of the left hand (i.e. the left hand is used by Muslims to wipe themselves following toilet usage, without toilet paper, hence the cultural association).
