Woodward appears to confirm what we've heard before: that Bush confers with God when it comes to making decisions. When asked what his father, George H., advised about going to war with Iraq, George W. said, "There is a higher father that I appeal to."

Should a U.S. president admit to receiving policy direction from God? Is he implying that one of the reasons we went to war against Iraq is because God told him to do so? Is this a smart move, esp. given the current geopolitical climate, where one could make the case that such a statement could actually incite terrorist attacks against this country? And what about those Americans that don't necessarily believe in God....? Is the U.S. a secular nation or a Christian nation?

I'm both confused and afraid....
