Uh huh, 7 years later, and some sanity might be prevailing

A U.S. military “Red Team” charged with challenging conventional thinking says that words like “jihad” and “Islamist” are needed in discussing 21st-century terrorism and that federal agencies that avoid the words soft-pedaled the link between religious extremism and violent acts.

“We must reject the notion that Islam and Arabic stand apart as bodies of knowledge that cannot be critiqued or discussed as elements of understanding our enemies in this conflict,” said the internal report, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times.

How about adding sharia, caliphate, Muslim, Islamic terrorist, Allah, Mohammed, Progressive, and dhimmi to the list?
