Color Me Not Surprised

I've certainly come to enjoy reading the investigative reports of The New Yorker's Seymour Hersh, and I cannot remember when his reporting was off or incorrect (though he is human, so there is likely something out there).  So, I was not even remotely surprised when I read that some within our military felt as though they were re-fighting The Crusades.  There are plenty of Christianists within the military (and within the defense contracting community), so of course there would be those among them who would think to use our conflicts as a proxy for eliminating Islam.  I just give Hersh credit for saying it out loud and in public.  And of course, nothing will be done to address the issue.  Nothing.
