The religious warrior of Abu Ghraib
...Boykin staged a travelling slide show around the country where he displayed pictures of Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. "Satan wants to destroy this nation, he wants to destroy us as a nation, and he wants to destroy us as a Christian army," he preached. They "will only be defeated if we come against them in the name of Jesus"...
...Boykin told an evangelical gathering last year how this fostered his spiritual crisis (in the Somalian warlord he'd captured). "There is no God," he said. "If there was a God, he would have been here to protect my soldiers." But he was thunderstruck by the insight that his battle with the warlord was between good and evil, between the true God and the false one. "I knew that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol."
...And the president, too, is on a divine mission. "George Bush was not elected by a majority of the voters in the US. He was appointed by God."
