White House: 'War on terrorism' is over

From:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/politics/

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.

UHOH: The only terminology that Mr. Brennan said the administration is using is that the U.S. is "at war with al Qaeda."
Is this more lip service?

I guess they'll never call it the "War on Afghanistan

and Iraq to confiscate all the natural resources there for our corporate allies." Will they.

Watch the administration co-opt...

the word "patriot" just like Hamilton co-opted the word "federalist". Soon patriotism will ONLY be defined as towing the rope the administration feeds out; and we will be perceived as "anti-patriotic". We have seen this in action already, but the WORD will be redefined and the sleepers will follow. Watch language, it will be an even greater difficulty in the near future.

Remember "al Qaeda" was a term created by the CIA

If I remember right for a nonexistent 'terrorist" group

I think it translates to "the toilet"

No kidding.

Ya now its a war on us!!!

thanks bama.

I see,and also say that...
The president is a dictator or a king.
The congress is his lap dog or his court
The people are subjects or slaves
Taxpayer money is the Feds or governments money

Choose either of the latter

Well,they certainly appear

to be waging a war against Americans.

And certain Americans/groups, which they name in things like the MIAC report, seem to be getting plenty of attention.

As Americans are more and

As Americans are more and more outraged and outspoken at being called "terrorists" a new word has to be deployed to detrigger all the outrage. If the term "Al Queda" really means 'database' - as in the British database of global troublemakers (freedom fighters) - then a simple switcheroo to include the TSA's database or 'Watch List' and we see Viola! & Shazam! nothing has changed but the label on the bullets and cages.

"Who amoung us will be the tyrant that brings Hitler society to America?"

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Part of normalization.

Part of normalization. ?
naughty, naught

I can see that

definately

It's a beginning.

nice, turn your efforts elsewhere.

In the name of transparency...

The Obama administration has decided to rename the "Global war on terror" to a more transparent name "The U.S. financial suck fest" from now on. Continue what you were doing, nothing to see here.

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

yeah and I got a bridge to sell you

yeah and Obama is going to bring back our troops from South Korea and the 130 other countries that our troops are in. GET REAL... he's going to get our guys killed under the UN - he's OBUSHMA.

It took Bush to give us Obama - and it's going to take a huge nazi socialist government to give us Ron Paul or Ron Paul like candidate... if it's not tooo late

"Many of us agree that you and I have no right to use coercion against people who don't owe us anything. The same prohibition applies to groups of people who constitute the government. The reason is simple: unjust acts do not become just when legalized. "

Obama the actor

has nothing to do with it. Maybe, calling us simple citizens terrorists for simply speaking up is back firing. So they are going to test some other term to use against us. I am concerned about the "upstream" comment and what that actually means. I would take my hat off to Obama if he ever told the truth. Believe me I would be saying the same thing about McCain or Bush. The seat of presidency is meaningless.

It will take more to convince the American people.

They're gonna have to come up with a catchy jingle too.

Do as the corporate sales team do...

And make it a rap song!

That is good

We just need to make sure they don't rename it and continue the same crap under a more "politically correct" name.

End the actual practice, don't just change the name.
