“People lost their lives. People are dead,” Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said. “People need to be very careful about what they say, just as they need to be careful about what they do.”

The Quran story had "legs" because there are hundreds of people who saw it happen with their own eyes. And it will not go away for the same reason.
