There was an article on Yahoo! earlier today in which General Petraeus said that he was "disturbed" by the verses on the scopes. Some of the things he said were some of the same concerns voiced here. I'd quote them but I can't find the article again and don't really have time to search The same article also stated that any future items provided to the U.S. military will not have any such inscription on them. The company is also going to provide modification kits so that the inscriptions can be removed from products already in service.

I would imagine that this will resolve the issue and it will quickly fade into the black hole of news stories when the wonderful "journalists" find something else to talk about.
