    It was actually much worse than that-

    'Global War On Terror' Is Given New Name

    Bush's Phrase Is Out, Pentagon Says

    By Scott Wilson and Al Kamen
    Washington Post Staff Writers
    Wednesday, March 25, 2009

    The Obama administration appears to be backing away from the phrase "global war on terror," a signature rhetorical legacy of its predecessor.

    In a memo e-mailed this week to Pentagon staff members, the Defense Department's office of security review noted that "this administration prefers to avoid using the term 'Long War' or 'Global War on Terror' [GWOT.] Please use 'Overseas Contingency Operation.' "
    We are waging an Overseas Contingency Operation on Man Made Disasters.
    "The problem in defense is how far you can go without destroying from within what you are trying to defend from without."

    Though I think this PR stunt is pointless and idiotic, the name itself is more to the point then the "Global Struggle against Extremism".

    All that's missing from this new phrase is the action we are taking (battling? hindering? stopping?) and the title is now the full description. "Hindering of Overseas Contingency operations of Man Made Disasters".

    Bush's title alludes that we are fighting all extremists, peaceful or not.

    A Nigerian national tried to set off an explosive device on a flight headed to Detroit from Amsterdam today in what the Obama administration is calling "an act of terrorism."
    But hey, don't let reality get in the way of a good rant.

    Of course Fred Rogers isn't an anti-American terrorist. He's a great American hero. Piss poor example.

    Don't know why I expected anything different, but can't say I didn't put in the effort.
    What do you suggest we do, since you've explained to us what not to do. Or are you just going to keep the troll patrol rolling along?

    Yes, my point was that Mr. Rogers is a terrorist. God, you're good.

    I think our current system works just fine. Are you going to actually explain your asinine proposal, or are you just going to keep on dodging and weaving every time you get called out?

    A dude climbs on an aircraft and attempts to set off an explosive device and you're fine with the current system? Um, ok.

    And exactly what would you propose? (See, here's where you avoid answering the question again, causing me to give up on you and unsubscribe from this thread)

    More attention to detail and more profiling is what I've proposed. I've said it numerous times in this thread.
