The Lone Pisser Theory

The Pentagon has now confirmed several instances of "mishandling" the Koran at Gitmo. Cases range from the mundane to the downright implausible:
The most recent, and perhaps strangest, case of mishandling was on 25 March, 2005, when a detainee complained to the guards that urine came through an air vent in his cell and "splashed on him and his Koran."

The report notes that the guard responsible reported himself to his superiors and was reassigned to different duties, while the detainee was given a new uniform and Koran.

"The guard had left his observation area post and went outside to urinate," according to a summary of the incident. "He urinated near an air vent and the wind blew his urine through the vent into the block."
Sure, that could happen. To be absolutely sure, however, we're going to need to exhume the body of Earl Warren so he can formulate the Magic Urine Theory.
