On October 16, 2003 The Associated Press discussed the claims published by the Los Angeles Times against U.S. General Boykin, who is accused of publicly casting the war on terrorism as a religious war between Judeo-Christian values and Satan. "Senators who appeared before reporters at the Pentagon Thursday on another matter were asked about the reports. Sen. Lincoln D. Chafee, R-R.I., said he had not been aware of Boykin's views as described by the Times, then added, 'If that's accurate, to me it's deplorable.'"
