Hooray!… Obama Official Claims “War on Terror” Is Over

It’s over. The War on Terror is finally over.
Thank you, Barack Obama.

An Obama Administration official told reporters this week that the War on Terror is now over.
The Weekly Standard reported:

“The war on terror is over,” a senior official in the State Department official tells the National Journal. “Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”

This new outlook has, in the words of the National Journal, come from a belief among administration officials that “It is no longer the case, in other words, that every Islamist is seen as a potential accessory to terrorists.”

The National Journal explains:

The new approach is made possible by the double impact of the Arab Spring, which supplies a new means of empowerment to young Arabs other than violent jihad, and Obama’s savagely successful military drone campaign against the worst of the violent jihadists, al Qaida.

    Next, the Obama administration can declare poverty abolished, decree that all Americans are smarter than average, and declare Obama President For Life.

    We can then all live happily ever after.

    Hope and Change, baby, Hope and Change!

    Classic Democratic tactic: declare victory and give up.

    Great news. Now let us get rid of Homeland Security and TSA as these department
    should no longer be needed.

    “…legitimate islamism”

    You gotta love how this administration gets so creative with the English language.

    George Orwell would be proud.

    The State Department is another government agency that needs a good, thorough housecleaning.

    Is there any area at all where Obama and the Democrats are not stuck on stupid? Just as I think they can’t get worse, they manage to prove me wrong. I don’t think our country can continue with these utter morons much longer. November can’t come soon enough. What absolutely astounds me is that there are people who support these dangerous idiots.

    They claim the economy is recovering…It’s not.
    They claim the #1 security threat is climate change…It’s not.
    They claim the Tea Party is a racist conglomerate financed by corporations…It’s not.
    They claim Conservatives want to throw granny off a cliff…We don’t.
    They claim the War on Terrorists is over…It’s not.

    This is what happens when the media does not operate in a non-biased fashion. Accountability and facts are ignored and exchanged for sychophancy and willing promotion of falsehood. However, the subtlety is no longer there.

    That sort of approach might work when no one is cautious. But, the current administration and the rest of the politicians (for that matter) have given no one any reason to trust them. As a result, more and more citizens are scrutenizing these messages suggesting more awareness of the media’s collusion. This is reflected in major media outlets losing unprecedented market share. I really think that the Obama administration will lose big in November (as will the Democrats overall). They are so short of content and substance that local politicians are actually reverting to running agains George W. Bush in some states.
    Cheers,

    The War on Terror with muslims killing Christians has been going on for awhile now once again…..they’ve been killing each other forever.

  • Finncrisp

    War on terror replaced by Moslem Spring. We can see where that is leading. I disagree with #3; Demomarxists give up, then declare victory.

    Next step nuclear insurgency?

    “a legitimate Islamism”

    The State Department is full of kooks who can’t wait to
    support any ideology that will challenge the Constitution.
