Assigned Reading: White House: War On Terrorism is Over
(FROM: The Washington Times)
Just saw this on Drudge. My goodness. First, it was the abandonment of the “Global War on Terror” term in favor of “Overseas Contingency Operation” and “terrorism” itself in favor of “man-caused disaster,” only weeks before a Department of Homeland Security directive was issued characterizing combat veterans and concerned, right-leaning Americans as “rightwing extremists.”
At that point, it was okay to call people like you and me “extremists,” but the attacks of September 11, 2001 should be considered a “man-caused disaster.”
Now, the White House says that the “War on Terrorism” is over, and that we will no longer be dealing with “Jihadists.” This comes at a time when the White House is encouraging left-leaning Americans to report on other Americans who are concerned about the president’s plans for healthcare and other issues. This comes at a time when the House Speaker accuses concerned Americans attending town hall meetings and doing their duty in a representative republic of being Nazi sympathizers.
We’re Nazis, you and I. But over in Afghanistan and Iraq, our soldiers certainly aren’t fighting a “global war,” and certainly not against “Jihadists.”
This is absolutely insane.
