Apologies to President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan

What with the recent unrest following the burning of Korans in Afghanistan, I decided to ask the opinion (as one does) of a friend who is a member of one of London's leading chambers of barristers, is one of Europe's leading experts on Sharia law, and is a descendent of a Sufi saint.

My friend wrote me via email that the prescribed method for disposing of a Koran that can no longer be used is to burn it.

One wonders, then, why President Obama has apologized so abjectly to President Karzai.  What's more, one asks: why are the US soldiers who disposed of those books now under threat of prosecution?

Meanwhile, I'd like to present this alternative apology to President Karzai, offered by Kira Davis.
