Unsuccessful Osama-hunter to retire

An army general who led the Pentagon's effort to hunt down Osama bin Laden and once likened the war on terror to a Christian struggle against Satan is retiring, a Pentagon spokesman said Monday.
Lt. Gen. William Boykin's claim to fame?
In a speech to a group in Oregon in June 2003, Boykin said radical Islamists hated the United States "because we're a Christian nation, because our foundation and our roots are Judeo-Christian ... and the enemy is a guy named Satan."

In another speech describing a battle with a Somali warlord, he said, "I knew my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol."
This is utter nonsense. Everyone knows that my God is bigger than everyone else's god.
