GQ Releases Rumsfeld's Bible-banging Report Covers

donald rumsfeld

Remember when our foot-in-mouth president, George Bush, called the war in Iraq a "crusade"? It seems that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld played on Bush's delusions by juxtaposing Bible verses with images of war.

Donald Rumsfeld's top-secret briefings for President Bush, known as the Worldwide Intelligence Update,
was a daily digest of critical military intelligence so classified that it circulated among only a handful of Pentagon leaders and the president; Rumsfeld himself often delivered it, by hand, to the White House. The briefing's cover sheet generally featured triumphant, color images from the previous days' war efforts... (a)nd above these images, and just below the headline secretary of defense, was a quote that may have raised some eyebrows. It came from the Bible, from the book of Psalms: Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him... To deliver their soul from death.
This is part and parcel dominionist theory, that "society should be governed exclusively by the law of God as codified in the Bible."

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend, would realize that there is much to do with this blog.

Good post. I study something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It should at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and follow a bit something from their store.
