Condi Rice Tells a Joke

With anti-American riots across the Muslim world caused by rumors Gitmo interrogators desecrated the Koran, Condoleeza Rice sprang into action:
In Washington, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice promised "appropriate action" would be taken if the allegations proved true about insults to the Koran at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay.
(Source: Washington Post Anti-U.S. Protests Spread to Pakistan, May 13, 2005 [Emphasis added])
Being as how the folks investigating torture cleared everyone not appearing in one of the pictures of any involvement in the abuses (two officers were disciplined, but the top brass were "cleared.")

Given that background, and the Bush League's "no pictures, no war crimes" policy, I find it difficult to believe another whitewashed report stating no such events occurred hasn't already been written. Any investigation conducted by the Bush League will center on supressing, not revealing, any desecration of the Koran.

Besides, the State Department can't order the Pentagon around, anyway. Rumsfeld will just stonewall in the hopes the "messiness" dies down.
