"an ABC News investigation has found."

"Tom Munson, director of sales and marketing for Trijicon, which is based in Wixom, Michigan, said the inscriptions "have always been there""

lol, how much of an investigation was that? I wonder if they went and spent money on optics to see the inscription, then called the company... Looks like Trijicon really dropped the ball on their "Secret" transcriptions by confirming it through thier spokesperson.

If this is truly a problem, I don't see Trijicon being at fault at all, if they're producing what they were contracted to produce. If the "secret" markings that they aren't hiding were on the prototypes or models the USMC surveyed before awarding the contract, then it's not really Trijicon's problem, it's whoever signed the dotted line for the government's problem. If they were hiding the markings to win the contract, then that's their problem, but it doesn't sound like they make it any secret at all. Sounds like ABC makes it a secret...
But yeah, I can see it being a problem in muslim countries. A couple years ago, I heard the US military wasn't allowing bibles to be sent to soldiers through their personal correspondence. But we provide a plethora of religious items and services to gitmo detainees.
That's over the top, IMO.

Freedom of speech. If you don't like it, don't buy it. I hope they stick to their guns.

...and when has this been a secret? It's been an open joke in the military for years.

Ah, good an excuse for me to buy a pre-ban ACOG...lol, $400 more for one with an inscription, $900 if it can be seen as referencing Colt in any way.

I'll take two!

If it was a secret, it would have been on the inside.

I agree with that, shouldnt be placing bible transcripts secretly within products - I see nothing wrong with it personally but with a govt group its another story = and sayin the govt should have found it prior is a joke, whens the last time our govt found something lolz there gonna come out with a press release about how they were watching it for a while and were following it but never took it out lolz

oh the bible it burnz......... lol

And I'm sure you'd feel the exact same way if the founder of the company had been a muslim and there were 'secret' references from the Koran there...

Not an original feature of US currency. It was added for the first time in 1864, during the US Civil War.

It also doesn't specify in whose version of God we should trust...

Kinda sucks that the company's products save our troops lives yet are being used by the enemy as fuel to keep killing Americans.

If a soldier is KIA and he carries a pocket bible, and the enemy takes that bible from his pocket to use it as propaganda, should the proper response be to not allow a soldier to carry his religious talisman into battle with him?

Better yet, do we ban him from carrying a bible, but allow him to carry a Koran? How about a Torah? That would be a bombshell on the enemy... America crusading by the control of Zionists...

It's been too quiet here lately.
Which God? This way we can offend somebody and get some lively excitement going!

Nope, I wouldn't like that. And I don't like this either. But I'm not going to complain about it because it has no practical impact on me or anyone else. I.E., it doesn't violate anyone's Constitutional, civil or statutory rights. But I've got an open mind and it can be changed. If you can explain to me who's rights are being violated, I'll listen. I think for that standard to be met, someone must be wronged.
