In a statement issued by the Pentagon, Panetta said NATO had ordered an investigation into the “deeply unfortunate” incident.
NATO’s top general in Afghanistan, General John Allen, apologized for “actions” at the base and said a new order had been given to all coalition forces in Afghanistan to take part in training in the proper handling of religious materials.
A senior U.S. official, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said staff at Bagram had decided to remove “extremist literature” and other materials left in a library in the base’s detention block.
“They (the materials) were taken out of the library for good reason but they were being disposed of in a bad way,” the official said.
“There was a breakdown in judgment in this matter but there was no breakdown in our respect for Islam,” the official added.
And therein lies the problem, doesn’t it? Bring them home, ban immigration of sharia-adherents from Afghanistan and start protecting our own borders.
