Marine Corps Lawyers Claim Crusades Weren’t a Religious War

Last month, I wrote about Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 122, the unit whose commander, in his infinite wisdom, had decided to change the unit’s nickname from the “Werewolves” to the “Crusaders,” a change that came complete with a nice big crusader shield and cross being painted on its planes.
