They ARE **PRECISELY** who we were afraid they were - White House: 'War on terrorism' is over
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.
These people actually believe if they LOOK AT SOMETHING IN A DIFFERENT WAY, REALITY IS DIFFERENT.
Mr. Brennan's speech was aimed at outlining ways in which the Obama administration intends to undermine the "upstream" factors that create an environment in which terrorists are bred.
You mean like Quranic injunctions (i.e, the immutable word of God) against unbelievers and especially a certain group comprising ~0.18% of the world's population?
Perhaps we should eliminate the root cause of ..`upstream factors that create an environment in which terrorists are bred.` .. unbelievers. Then we can all say, the war on terror is truly over.
Barack Obama will be the worst president since James Buchanan.
Mr. Brennan lamented "inflammatory rhetoric, hyperbole, and intellectual narrowness" surrounding the national security debate and said Mr. Obama has views that are "nuanced, not simplistic; practical, not ideological."
