JOINT TASK FORCE GUANTANAMO
HEADQUARTERS, JOINT DETENTION OPERATION GROUP (JDOG)
GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA APO AE 09360


TF-GTMO-JDOG-CO
MEMORANDUM FOR All personnel, JDOG
SUBJECT: Camp Delta Interim SOP Modification: Inspecting/Handling Detainee Korans
Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)
1. General. The purpose of this SOP is to provide guidance and set specific procedures for the handling and inspecting of detainee Korans.

2. Intent. To ensure the safety of the detainees and MPs while respecting the cultural dignity of the Korans thereby reducing the friction over the searching the Korans. JTF-GTMO

personnel directly working with detainees will avoid handling or touching the detainee’s Koran whenever possible. When military necessity does require the Koran to be search, the subsequent
procedures will be followed.

3. Inspection.
a. The MP informs the detainee that the Chaplain or a Muslim interpreter will inspect the Koran. If the detainee refuses the inspection at any time, the noncompliance is reported to the
Detention Operations Center (DOC) and logged appropriately by the block NCO.

b. The Koran will not be touched or handled by the MP.

c. The Chaplain or Muslim interpreter will give instructions to the detainee who will handle the Koran. He may or may not require a language specific interpreter.

d. The inspector is examining so as to notice an unauthorized items, markings, or any indicators that raises suspicion about the contents of the Koran.

e. The inspector will instruct the detainee to first open the one cover with one hand while holding the Koran in the other thus exposing the inside cover completely.

f. The inspector instructs the detainee to open pages in an upright manner (as if reading the Koran). This is a random page search and not every page is to be turned. Pages will be turned slowly enough to clearly see the pages.

g. The inspector has the detainee show the inside of the back cover of the Koran.

SUBJECT: Camp Delta Interim SOP Modification: Inspecting/Handling Detainee Korans
Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)

h. The detainee is instructed to show both ends of the Koran while the book is closed so that inspector can note the binding while closed paying attention to abnormal contours or protrusions associated with the binding. The intent is to deduce if anything may be in the binding without forcing the detainee to expose the binding, which may be construed as culturally insensitive or offensive given the significance of the Koran.

i. How the detainee reacted, observation by other detainees, and other potentially relevant observations will be annotated appropriately on the block significant activities sheet as well as staff journal.

4. Handling.
a. Clean gloves will be put on in full view of the detainees prior to handling.
b. Two hands will be used at all times when handling the Koran in manner signaling respect
and reverence. Care should be used so that the right hand is the primary one used to manipulate
any part of the Koran due to the cultural association with the left hand. Handle the Koran as if it
were a fragile piece of delicate art.
c. Ensure that the Koran is not placed in offensive areas such as the floor, near the toilet or
sink, near the feet, or dirty/wet areas.

5. Removal.
a. Korans should be left in the cell as a general rule (save in MSU), even when a detainee is moved to another cell or block. In principal, every cell (except MSU) will have a Koran “assigned” to it.

b. If a Koran must be removed at the direction the CJDOG, the detainee library personnel or Chaplain will be contacted to retrieve and properly store the Koran in the detainee library. The request for the librarian/Chaplain, as well as the retrieval itself, will be logged appropriately.

c. If the Chaplain, librarian, or Muslim interpreter, within the needs of the situation, cannot remove the Koran, then the MP may remove the Koran after approved by the DOC (who notes this in the MP Blotter) IAW the following procedures:
1) Clean gloves will be put on in full view of the detainees prior to handling

2) Two hands will be used at all times when handling the Koran in manner signaling respect and reverence.

3) Place a clean, dry, detainee towel on the detainee bed and then place the Koran on top of the clean towel in a manner, which allows it to be wrapped without turning the Koran over at any time in a reverent manner. Ensure that the Koran is not placed in offensive areas such as the
floor, near the toilet or sink, near the feet, or dirty/wet area when doing this activity.

d. How the detainee reacted, observation by other detainees, and other potentially relevant observations will be annotated appropriately on the block significant activities sheet as well as staff journal.

e. The Koran shall be returned to the librarian, Chaplain, or DOC (in that order).
f. Exception: Detainee in MSU may have a Koran if specifically authorized by a 508-1
or the Level 5 Block Entitlement Form. Once detainee leaves MSU, the same
handling/removing policies and procedures remain in effect.
6. Korans are the property of the U.S. Government and as such will remain in the cells only to be removed at the JDOG Commander’s decision.
7. For further information or clarification, please contact the JDOG DOC @ 3239.



Well, it looks like we're losing this war. Now the Scum at Guantanimo Bay are telling us how to run the prison. The Koran, which is a book of war that fuels radical Islam now cannot even be touched by a FILTHY INFIDELS hands, unless they are wearing WHITE GLOVES and have the commanders permission.

Some of these rules are laughable and a PC war like this can only end up in a loss for America. All this will do is give the terrorists at GB a way to pass messages to one another and maybe even hide weapons in their "Holy" Korans. Here is a rule or two they shoulda included:

1) If the prisoner refuses to hand over the "Holy" Koran to the MP, than the MP shall take the Koran away from the POS and smack him upside the head with the Koran numerous times until he complies. If the terrorist prisoner still gives the MP grief, than the MP shall beat the MFer within an inch of his life with the butt of his assault rifle.

2) If any of the prisoners terrorist friends pipe up and start complaining, the MP's shall take them for a helicopter ride and "drop off" the complainers from altitude of no lower than 3000 feet above sea level into shark infested waters.

Everybody, loosen up a bit and enjoy this:

"Self-Desecrating Koran Offers Convenience, Sparks Riots

Looking to cause havoc in you detention facility but can't trick your infidel guard into mishandling your holy book? The Jersey City based company "Desecrated Incorporated" has the answer to all five of your daily prayers.

"Although Muslims will riot at the drop of a hat," said Marketing Director Sam Snead, "they prefer a more provocative excuse, like the drop of a Koran. That's why we've created Korans that will give the appearance of being defiled without actually being touched. So when a guard approaches, all the detainee has to do is activate the easily-hidden remote control, and POOF! International incident."

"There are several models to choose from," explained Snead. "Our most popular is the Whoopsie Wayward Walker. It has little mechanical feet that spring out, enabling it to "walk" off a table and onto the floor. For added effect, another touch of the remote will make a kick-dent appear in the book's spine."

"Then there's our "magic ink" models. When activated, "stains" will appear on the pages to simulate either water damage, dirty fingerprints, a coffe-cup ring, or wind-splattered urine. Pretty hard for the guards to talk their way out of it when you have the proof in your non-kafir hand."

"We're looking to add a poo-stain version this summer," continued Snead, "but we're having a little trouble getting the smell right. Scratch & sniff is a tricky medium to work with."

Also in the works is a self-flushing model.

"It's the ultimate convenience" said Snead. "moisture sensors in the cover automatically guide the book directly into the toilet, and a tiny, water-activated motor propels it down the bowl and into the waste pipe."

"Plus the quick-dissolving paper is completely septic-safe!"

Muslims the world over rioted outside stores selling the special Korans, fighting amongst themselves to be the first one on their block to own a copy.

Said one unidentified rioter, "Only twenty bucks for an excuse to riot AND I get to blame the infidels for causing it? Hell, I'm gonna sell my wife and buy a CASE of these things! I love it! ULULULULULULULULU!!!"

Murder in any form is wrong Mojo, no matter who perpetrates it. The reason we have these rules and guidelines is to show respect for the culture and religion, especially since not all the detainees at Gitmo are even formally charged with being "terrorists."

In America we have this thing called the Bill of Rights, and in it we guarentee free practice of religion, no matter how stringent the rules of that religion are we must adhere to them and extend the rights we all enjoy to all those we have control over. You can not pick and choose which humans are worthy of rights and which are not, especially when no one has been convicted of any crimes yet.

Wow, LA, you should take this as a huge complement! You're now bigger than Carl Rove in leading the US down its path to destruction. It's like Hannity's thing:

"Contrary to popular belief, Sean Hannity is not responsable for John Kerry losing the election, but thanks for the complement."

Wait...but...didn't...didn't you just make a comment?

As to the handling of Mein Kampf, it was by no means a holy book of the Germans. It was simply a book written by some psycho. (Unfortunately, this particular psycho managed to take over a nation and start invading Europe, but he was still a psycho)
