Steve Doocy On U.S. Military Bible Rifles: The Terrorists 'Started It' (VIDEO)

Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy came to the defense of a Michigan company, Trijicon, that has come under heavy criticism for selling the U.S. military weapons for use in Iraq and Afghanistan that are inscribed with secret Bible quotes. The inscriptions threaten to be a major public relations headache since the U.S. has gone out of its way to offer assurances that its operations in the Muslim world have nothing to do with Islam.

Doocy, however, doesn't see what the big deal is because the terrorists "started it."

My wife made a good observation yesterday when we were talking about this story, and that is, 'hey, wait a minute, the Taliban and the extremists, what is it they say just before they blow themselves up or kill somebody, they say Allahu Akbar.' If anybody's making this a religious thing, they started it.

Trijicon has announced that it will cease the practice and is offering its clients kits to remove existing inscriptions.
