Well that seems a little early doesn’t it?
“The war on terror is over,” one senior State Department official who works on Mideast issues told me. “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.”—Michael Hirsh, National Journal
Well this is fantastic news isn’t it?! The War on Terror is over! This must mean that all of our troops are home from Afghanistan. This must mean that the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, all Al-Qaeda affiliates, Hezbollah, the Taliban, the Islamic Jihad Union, and the dozens of other Islamic terror organizations have hung up their suicide bomber coats and called it a career!
No? That hasn’t happened yet? Oh….
Fact of the matter is, this administration has been in such a state of denial over threats facing America. The War on Terror is the politician’s way of saying “the war against radical Islam.” This administration—way more than the Bush administration that came up with the War on Terror label—has been terrified to identify America’s enemies for who they are.
To basically say that the threat of radical Islam is over is possibly the most naïve thing that has ever been said.
