Are they or aren't they?

Just a quick note: a flippant reply to the scads of reports of Koran desecration floating around (aside from the Newsweek one) is that al-Qaeda operatives are trained to make false allegations. The source being this:
A US military spokesman, Army Col Brad Blackner, dismissed the claims as unbelievable. “If you read the Al Qaeda training manual, they are trained to make allegations against the infidels,” he said.
This is true. You can read it in the manual itself.
Other missions consist of the following:
5. Spreading rumors and writing statements that instigate people against the enemy.
The only problem with this is that all these allegations are coming from people who have been released from Guantanamo. For example, see this al-Jazeera story, or this one about one of the released UK detainees, both confirming incidents of Koran desecration. Are these men al-Qaeda operatives? If so, why were they released?
