U.S. Military Apologizes for Soldier Using Quran for Target Practice

Yeah, knock it off -- that's my job.

But seriously, Army-boy: if you're going to act like an idiot, could you not do it "in a predominantly Sunni area west of Baghdad" while those words match a description of where my Marine, Jonathan Lee, currently is? Thank you.

Btw, the officer who issued the apology is one Col. Bill Buckner. Really. Hey, don't apologize -- Mookie had it beat anyway!!
