… have yielded death in the streets of Kabul. This lgf post prompted me to go back to the original Newsweek article by Michael Isikoff and John Berry that alleges a Quran was flushed down a Guantanamo toilet (the proximate cause of the carnage in Kabul). It comes from an anonymous source! For their sakes, I hope Isikoff and Barry’s source proves to be accurate because who would want these deaths on their conscience? The NYT recently went on a crusade against anonymously sourced reporting. So should Newsweek. So should we all.
