Huzzah!! The War on Terrorism is over!!
Reminiscent of his bow to the King of Saudi Arabia, the White House kow-tows again in the direction of the Middle East:
“It’s official. The U.S. is no longer engaged in a “war on terrorism.” Neither is it fighting “jihadists” or in a “global war.”
President Obama’s top homeland security and counterterrorism official took all three terms off the table of acceptable words inside the White House during a speech Thursday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.
“The President does not describe this as a ‘war on terrorism,'” said John Brennan, head of the White House homeland security office, who outlined a “new way of seeing” the fight against terrorism.
In other words, if the President decides to call a dog’s tail a leg, then the dog has five legs.
