“I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies,” Obama wrote, according to a statement from Karzai’s office.
“We will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible. In future all prisoners will be provided with Ipads containing e-Korans, as well as Wi-Fi so that they can communicate with their friends without being forced to deface their own sacred texts.”
Oh, yeah, did I mention that those Korans had been pulled from prison library shelves because the prisoners had expressed their deep reverence for their holy book by writing extremist messages on them?
In related news, CBS headlined their story "Afghans protest peacefully over Quran burnings"...before casually mentioning that yesterday's riots left "seven people dead and dozens wounded." Because, you know, those peaceful protests are so dangerous.
Okay, I made some of that up. But can you guess which part?
