Number one, and here we could be in for severe philosophical drift, "what is the truth?"

The truth comes with a point of view, both physical and psychological. Not for nothing did a well-known physicist, when asked about the color of a car he witnessed in an accident, answer, "the side I saw was green".

Now whether as part of an interrogation, or a softening up procedure, someone flushed a Koran, or pretended to flush a Koran, I don't think we can say at present. Whether the story of the flush was intentional in that it was believed, intentional in that it was wished to be leaked, is another facet of this deceptively simple story.

What is most clear to me is that it ain't easy to be a journalist. It isn't even easy to try to be a journalist.

It is always easy to attack someone trying to be a journalist.
