Qur'ans torched at Bagram air base had "extremist inscriptions" written in them, says military

You won't hear this by the MSM.  That is why it is vitally important to get as much information as you can,from sources other than the ones you usually turn to.  Funny how this is on CNN, yet no one knows.

The fact that these books, including Qur'ans had what amounted to jihadist exhortations makes them fair game for destruction.  The uproar over this is far overblown, but as Muslims are the new victim class it makes sense that we would apologize to the Afghan people form"insulting" them.

Islam, the religion of the perpetually insulted.

There was "an appearance that these documents were being used to facilitate extremist communications," a military official said.

"Additionally, some of the documents were extremist in and of themselves, apparently originating from outside of Afghanistan," the official said.

The official said the material was burned, but authorities are attempting to determine how much.
The uproar prompted Gen. John Allen, commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force, to issue a directive "that all coalition forces in Afghanistan will complete training in the proper handling of religious materials no later than March 3," the NATO-led force said..
