I've just come across two interesting quotes.

The first is from Lt- General William Boykin, (centrally involved in the interrogation techiques at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo)........
'.....the enemy is a spiritual enemy, he's called the principality of darkness. The enemy is a guy called Satan.'

and, from G.W. Bush to Mahmoud Abbas in 2003....
'God told me to strike al-Queda and I struck them, and then he instructed me to strike at Saddam, which I did.'

from "Black Mass" by John Gray.

The opening sentence of this book is.....
'Modern politics is a chapter in the history of religion.'
