War on Terror Is Officially Over

Great news — if you’re a terrorist: the War on Terror is officially over. I wish I could say the same for terror’s war on us.

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. …

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.

The president’s adviser talked about increasing aid to foreign governments for building up their militaries and social and democratic institutions, but provided few details about how the White House will do that.

Even without the details, the overall picture is clear: our liberal rulers steal our money and give it as protection money to regimes that sponsor terrorists. Elections have consequences, all right.

With the WoT behind us, we can focus on more important issues, like nationalizing the entire economy one sector after another, and running up a deficit so huge that taxes can never be cut again.
