From the CNN blog: On Monday, Robertson said on the Christian Broadcast Network´s "The 700 Club": "We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability." The Christian leader went on to say that Washington doesn´t need to engage in another $200 billion war to get rid of one person. "It´s a whole lot easier to have some of the covert operatives do the job and then get it over with." Rangel pointed out that Robertson has influence in the US, adding sarcastically that his words were "very Christian." His comments "reveal that religious fundamentalism is one of the great problems facing humanity in these times," Rangel said.
