Has the U.S. military been proseletyzing the civilians of Iraq and Afghanistan?   Apparently so, according to Newsweek:

[A] civil-rights watchdog group, Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), says . . .  a cadre of 40 U.S. chaplains took part in a 2003 project to distribute 2.4 million Arabic-language Bibles in Iraq. This would be a serious violation of U.S. military Central Command’s General Order Number One forbidding active-duty troops from trying to convert people to any religion.

Lots of disturbing details regarding what appears to be the Christianized military of the United States.
