'Jihadists' and 'global war on terror' no longer exist and we're not engaged in a "war on terrorism" ...Interesting

http://www.thecontemporaryconservative.blogspot.com Didn't these people give "W." grief on the Mission accomplished statement......just because you believe something is true doesn't make it true. Afghanistan is now Obama's war to win or loose I guess....from the Washington Times:

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. …He was specific about ways in which Mr. Obama believes words influence the way America prosecutes the fight against terrorism. ….Mr. Brennan said that to say the U.S. is fighting "jihadists" is wrongheaded because it is using "a legitimate term, 'jihad,' meaning to purify oneself or to wage a holy struggle for a moral goal" which "risks giving these murderers the religious legitimacy they desperately seek but in no way deserve."
