Of the "unsubstantiated" (not disputed) Newsweek report that Korans were thrown down the toilet to torture Muslims at Guantanamo Bay, Kevin writes: "After 15 people died rioting because of the report: Newsweek magazine bowed to intense White House pressure Monday and retracted its report that Korans were thrown in toilets at the Guantanamo Bay terror prison. After 20,000 civilians and 1,600 American troops died: The White House, under pressure from the majority of the American people, the majority of the world, the Pope, and one of the Ten Commandments, said ‘If the President lied, may God strike with a bolt of lightning that knocks off his dick.’ Funeral services for the Vice President will be held next Saturday."
