Skip to comments.Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is 'Over'
Posted on 04/24/2012 12:11:07 AM PDT by Lazlo in PA
Today, the National Journal reported that a senior State Department official has announced, The war on terror is over.
Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, the source said, 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.
The article itself describes the Obama administrations new vision of foreign policy, which admits no enemies. Everyone, in this view, is a friend. Islamism, says the Obama administration, is just fine, so long as it does not openly support terrorism.
This, of course, is utter foolishness. Islamism is a religious ideological movement that brooks no real alternatives so while the State Department proclaims a legitimate Islamism, it fails to acknowledge that Islamism, legitimate or not, is deeply intolerant of any other modes of expression. Not only that, but Islamism works hand-in-glove with terror groups around the world. Simply because a regime does not openly house al Qaida does not mean that the regime doesnt support al Qaida; just because a regime pretends at democracy doesnt mean that it has real democratic values.
Obama has created the brave new Middle East a Middle East that assumes that every human heart has the desire to vote, but not to be truly free; a Middle East that oppresses women and gays and minorities, but pretends at liberalism; a Middle East that despises America but hides that hate behind a façade of multiculturalism, even as it disposes of its internal dissenters.

Seeing as teh islamic terrorists have a man in the white house, I’d say teh war on terror is over. The terrorists have won.
Now it’s up to us to put up a good resistance and reclaim our freedom.
Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8-9
Oh but I disagree Mr. President.
It’s like that little girl in Poltergeists ominous warning: “They’re heeeerrreeee..”
Watching, waiting, getting indoctrinated in prison, building their own enclaves....
One thing to consider. People are by the week better informed than they used to be. No question,none at all that there are those happily blind and dumb but due to this little machine here in front of me more people are aware of whats going on around them.
The war on terror IS over. Why would the United States war on itself? It is the principle architect of the coming terror, directed at her citizens.
I expected some sort of a “peace offensive” as a lead-up to the election because it could reap electoral benefits just thru the surprise factor. I expect more of this. Of course, none of it will have any basis in reality and the American people will be more insecure as a result which is a feature and not a bug.
Not from those that I hear though. You claim it, not me.
The economy is what will finish Obama.

[[ Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is ‘Over’ ]]
If the War on Terror is really over, then when will we get rid of the TSA thugs at the airports?
“Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, the source said, 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.
A really asinine, knuckleheaded statement by a really knuckleheaded ASS.
I wonder how many people are dumb enough to believe BHO. He helped orchestrate the “Arab Spring” specifically to oust more moderate leaders who’d peacefully coexisted with Israel and replace them with radical Islamist dedicated to Israel’s destruction.
“then there is no longer a need for America to be under the thumb of the countless federal goons and thugs running rampant across our great Nation.”
On the contrary - under Obama’s DHS, it isn’t Islamic terrorists who merit observation and dealing with - it’s Americans whom they deem as dissidents (not in total agreement with The Wan).
“This admin is really stupid.”
Oh, no it isn’t - it’s deeply diabolical. And Islamic.
