While the O'ministration speaks out publicly against burning the Koran, they have no trouble burning 9,500 copies of "Operation Dark Heart," Army Reserve Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer's memoir about going undercover in Afghanistan.
"Operation Dark Heart" had already been approved by the army (because info in it was already public). But the Defense Intelligence Agency read the book, and determined that parts of it compromised national security. After negotiations, they paid $5 per book to burn 9,500 existing copies and worked with the publisher to remove the objectionable content.
How's that for audacity?!
The O'ministraion spoke out against burning copies of the Koran because it might inflame religious tension abroad, then used taxpayer money to burn copies of a soldier's memoirs because the content might inflame US Citizens. -CE
