14. Well, not necessarily...
"Numerous detainees at the Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba told FBI interrogators that guards had mistreated copies of the Koran, including one who said in 2002 that guards "flushed a Koran in the toilet," according to new FBI documents released today"

Of course, the detainees would never lie. In order to take this as proof that Newsweek was right, you're taking the word of the detainee over that of the soldier he's accusing. Accusations do not equal proof.

For the record, though, I think it probably happened, but just as accusations by prisoners do not equal proof, neither do my suspicions.
