"The Wall Street Journal Editorial page is completely unimpressed by what it calls the 'unhorrifying' recent findings of Koran desecration at Guantanamo Bay. In fact, it would seem that we need such measures for our own good," writes Mipe Okunseinde, quoting the Journal: "'Someone in the administration ought to point out that these [special detention or military-justice] measures are designed to prevent the next terror attack – which, if it ever comes, could prompt a bipartisan crackdown on civil liberties that would make Guantanamo look like summer camp.'"
