Questions, Questions

Coupla questions concerning this Newsweek/Gitmo thing.

First...from Yahoo News:

“U.S. officials have substantiated five cases in which military guards or interrogators mishandled the Quran of Muslim prisoners at Guantanamo Bay but found "no credible evidence" to confirm a prisoner's report that a holy book was flushed in a toilet…”

Second...from the Tarheel State:

"A Baptist minister in Forest City refuses to apologize for a church sign saying the Muslim holy book, the Quran, should be flushed."

Now, two questions:

1) Does it really matter how the Quran was mishandled?

2) Seeing as how the Church Sign story has received some major media coverage, I’m just wondering: if there’s another riot in Afghanistan, who will get the blame? The preacher? The news source? Newsweek?
