By now we can concede that America's prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, is not a torture-driven gulag and that Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., is at risk of implosion by hyperbole. And we can thank insurgents for providing that perspective.

And what it is not -- bad manners toward a book. Even a sacred one.
