This is an interesting piece about a faith-based collaboration to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan. The article states:
The U.S. military, eager to hand the war over to the Afghan government, has placed mentors throughout the Afghan National Army. The Americans help commanders command, fliers fly and spies spy. U.S. Army Capt. James Hill, a baby-faced 27-year-old from Lawton, Okla., drew the job of mentoring Lt. Col. Abdul Haq, a 51-year-old army mullah who has never shaved.
I'm surprised some separation-of-church-and-state group hasn't stepped in to prevent such mentoring.
