In my name, they have done these things.

This government has sullied my name as it has sullied the flag, using the pretext of a war on terror to justify the slaughter of those who did not attack us on 9-11, no matter how assiduously our government struggled to make a 9-11/Iraq connection.

And those hands carry our American flag.

the sword drop from men's hands even at the height
of their arc of anger
because we have finally realized there is just one flesh to wound
and it is His - the Christ's, our
