This is exactly the kind of thing that gives thugs like al Qaeda an excuse to say we're on a crusade, that it's our God against their God, that our military is engaged in religious conflict, that we're attacking them with holy weapons, etc. And for what? For a chance for some manufacturer to evangelize on the taxpayer dime?

"We are aware of the issue and are concerned with how this may be perceived," Capt. Geraldine Carey, a spokesperson for the Marine Corps, said in a statement to ABC News. "We will meet with the vendor to discuss future sight procurements." Carey said that when the initial deal was made in 2005 it was the only product that met the Corps needs.
