Because, despite your constant reminder of how you are against religion, these leaders hold a viable power of morals within certain groups.
The shiite leader (damn, I can't remember his name) in Iraq is the main reason we are able to operate so smoothly in much of the country. He could wave his hand and we'd have falluja x100 if he wanted. Religious leaders have also negotiated the release of many hostages.

That shiite leader: Ali Sistani
