Document Showing Koran Toilet Flush Allegation
Here is one such document, you may have to zoom in to read it. It's stamped August 1, 2002, but the interview referred to took place on July 22 and July 29, 2002. (Or you can find it among dozens on this page (pdf) at the ACLU site - scroll down to page 44 or 45.)
It's an FBI interview of a detainee, conducted with a translator present. It's document number 4136-4137, referred to here as
DETAINEES 4136-4137 Summary of FBI interview of detainee at Guantanamo Bay 07/22/02 Records detainee's responses to questions.
Scroll down to the last paragraph on the page. It says,
Prior to his capture he had no information against the United States. Personally, he had nothing against the United States. The guards at the detention facility do not treat him well. Their behavior is bad. About five months ago, the guards beat the detainees. They flushed a Koran in the toilet.
You can also see just this quote from the page here. So the incident occurred around February, 2002.
