If God Is On Our Side, Why Are Our Troops Dying?

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is skeptical about President Bush's beliefs, and how they have shaped America's foreign policy.

"We should not be contributing to what is a long historical struggle between the Sunni and Shia," Albright remarked.

At the same time, I am not certain that Mr. Bush's problems necessarily stem from a a rigid ethical code based on religion; instead, I believe he uses God as a means of self-justification, and that his faith, ultimately, is more about God Giving Things to George than the other way around.

Because God, it seems, has never told George W. Bush no.
