    White House: 'War on terrorism' is over

    White House: 'War on terrorism' is over - Washington Times

    'Jihadists' and 'global war' no longer acceptable terms

    By Jon Ward and Eli Lake WASHINGTON TIMES

    Originally published 12:34 p.m., August 6, 2009, updated 01:11 p.m., August 6, 2009

    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.
    I will simply quote from Obama's oown book:
    Audacity of Hope: I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

    War on terrorism should be over only when the threat no longer exists ideally.

    Why even use the term Jihadists? Why not just terrorists?

    Because Jihadists makes it clear that Christian Terrorists are exempt from the phrase.

    The joke was and is that Bush and Cheney forgot the leadership of those attacks and and George went off too avenge his daddy and Dick Cheney in a irrelevant Iraq. Lying too and robbing the American public the whole way.

    So I would imagine that the victims of 9-11 and their families are still victims of the Bush administrations lies and ineptitude.

    I thought this broke a while ago, and was renamed "Overseas contigency operations".
