    there is an underlying Christian v. Muslim animus to this whole thing....and it really fucks with the dynamics at work.

    1. Bushco's evangelicals won't discuss separtion of church and state, a necessary component of a functioning democracy in any society with multiple religions.
    1. Engaging in sloppy Christian v. Muslim talk plays right into Bin Laden's hands....makes Muslims feel threatened and b/c we're out to get Muslims while Bin Laden is out to protect them...his power base grows while our ability to influence hearts/minds diminishes.
    1. On the topic of interrogation, it makes interrogation exceedingly difficult....who wants to debate whether the Koran or the Bible is correct?

    I hope Obama can make some categorical statements about the role of religion in our society, its role in our military, etc....to restore some sanity to this process.

    simplicity is the most difficult of all things
