The practice was hit on several fronts. Mikey Weinstein, head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, called it unconstitutional, a violation of the theater commander’s general order against proselytizing in Afghanistan and Iraq and was against those countries’ laws. Frank Schaeffer, an author and columnist for Military.com, said Trijicon had essentially sold the U.S. military “booby-trapped” equipment because it would generate resentment from Muslims and give the insurgents and al-Qaida fodder for their claim the U.S. is engaged in a “crusade” against Islam.
I may be off base here, but the Military is at fault for this Not the company. It was the bid that they took and they just didn't pay attention to something like a Serial Number. I believe (as far as I understand) The Manufacturer has no Responsibility to change the product. It bugs me that the News is painting the company as some bad horrible company when it's actually the Governments Problem because they are the ones that should know what they are buying before they buy it......That's just how I understand it. With the reasoning of this whole ordeal, we should remove all lower Case "t"'s on military given equipment Because it looks like a Cross. I can't believe how badly the News has portrayed this whole situation. It's Ridiculous.
