Anyone who thought that Bush's speechwriter's slip in referring to the Middle-Eastern invasions as a “Crusade” was just a poor choice of words and nothing more significant might be interested to see GQ's collection of title pages from Donald Rumsfeld's defence briefings – featuring proud photos of tanks, missile launches, soldiers praying etc., superimposed bible quotes supposedly backing their invasions (“thou shalt not kill” is needless to say not one of them). Not really the kind of thing that should be appearing in top-level state military advice.
