A Pentagon investigation the following year found that Boykin violated regulations by failing to make clear he was not speaking in an official capacity when he made the speeches, sometimes wearing his Army uniform. The probe also found Boykin violated Pentagon rules by failing to obtain advance clearance for his remarks.
Yet the former commander and 13-year veteran of the Army's top-secret Delta Force is also an outspoken evangelical Christian who appeared in dress uniform and polished jump boots before a religious group in Oregon in June to declare that radical Islamists hated the United States "because we're a Christian nation, because our foundation and our roots are Judeo-Christian ... and the enemy is a guy named Satan."
Discussing the battle against a Muslim warlord in Somalia, Boykin told another audience, "I knew my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol."
"We in the army of God, in the house of God, kingdom of God have been raised for such a time as this," Boykin said last year.
On at least one occasion, in Sandy, Ore., in June, Boykin said of President Bush: "He's in the White House because God put him there."
Jerry Boykin stepped to the pulpit at the First Baptist Church of Broken Arrow, Okla., and described a set of photographs he had taken of Mogadishu, Somalia, from an Army helicopter in 1993.
The photographs were taken shortly after the disastrous “Blackhawk Down” mission had resulted in the death of 18 Americans. When Boykin came home and had them developed, he said, he noticed a strange dark mark over the city. He had an imagery interpreter trained by the military look at the mark.“This is not a blemish on your photograph,” the interpreter told him,“This is real.”
“Ladies and gentleman, this is your enemy,” Boykin said to the congregation as he flashed his pictures on a screen.“It is the principalities of darkness... It is a demonic presence in that city that God revealed to me as the enemy.”
That evening, CBS’ David Martin played footage of Boykin making this point during another public speech.“Whether you understand it or not, it is a demonic spirit over the city of Mogadishu,” Boykin says on the CBS tape.“Ladies and gentleman, that’s not a fake, that’s not a farce.”
As Arkin said in his piece in the Times,“That’s an unusual message for a high-ranking U.S. military official to deliver.” But Boykin has other unusual views. Every school kid knows that our presidents are not elected by popular vote. But why is President Bush in the White House? Boykin has explained that one too:
ARKIN: He has praised the leadership of President Bush, whom he extolled as “a man who prays in the Oval Office.”“George Bush was not elected by a majority of the voters in the United States,” Boykin told an Oregon congregation.“He was appointed by God.”
Why didn’t God just inspire more people to vote for Bush? Most likely, Boykin can tell you.
