The Full Armor of God

A slight revision of my piece from last week in Religion Dispatches has just gone up this morning at Killing the Buddha. Again, it’s about some troubling cover sheets that Donald Rumsfeld cooked up for his boss the president to see in the first weeks of the Iraq War.

A former Air Force intelligence officer told me that the use of Biblical verses on cover sheets, in his experience, is “not at all surprising.” Many of those privy to such briefings probably would have been Christian, he suspects, and the rest “knew better than to object.”
