Ret. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin

Boykin was the United States Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence, and has played a major role in military operations for over forty years. He was also a major player in CIA operations.

Boykin is a born-again Christian, a hard-line Fundamentalist who speaks of the War On Terror in Biblical terms. In one speech, speaking about hunting down Osman Atto in Mogadishu: “He went on CNN and he laughed at us, and he said, ‘They’ll never get me because Allah will protect me. Allah will protect me.’ Well, you know what? I knew that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol.”

His anti-Islamic sentiments have been well documented over the years as well as his homophobic stance on gays in the military.
