William Boykin,

U.S. Army general, violated military rules when he spoke in uniform at churches and before religious groups, portraying the war on terror in religious terms. He called the God of Islam “an idol,” and said, “My God was a real God.” He also declared that President Bush is in the White House because “God put him there.” The deputy inspector general for the Defense Department said Boykin made 23 such speeches dating back to Jan. 2002.
