Some call it wishful thinking, but President Barack Obama has all but declared an end to the global war on terror.
Obama is not claiming final victory over extremists who still seek to kill Americans and other Westerners. Instead, he is steering the United States away from what he calls an equally frightening threat: a country in a state of perpetual war.
In a landmark speech Thursday in which he sought to refine and recalibrate his counterterrorism strategy, Obama asserted that al-Qaida is "on the path to defeat," reducing the scale of terrorism to pre-Sept. 11 levels.

Considering 9/11, it seems that the terror threat level on 9/10 was prety high.

That’s because the Ft. Hood massacre, the Benghazhi attacks, the Boston Marathon bombings, etc. were not terrorist incidents. Lone wolf frustration is all. No religious component. Obama tells us so.
The terror threat on 9/10/2011 was pretty high, wouldn’t you say?
But the pre-9/11 threat level is what led up to 9/11.
That would be like 9/10 ,not quite yet but coming
Obama is sending out a smokescreen trial ballon.
Obama’s definition of JOBS has now been revealed: Just Obama Bull Shi*.
>> But the pre-9/11 threat level is what led up to 9/11.
Anything to avoid crediting Bush.
Translation: Expect another 9/11.....
Obama Believes Terror Threat Reduced to Pre-9/11 LevelReduced? The threat level was high pre-9/11 we just didn't know it.
If the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor today, the current administration would first start making excuses for the Japanese and then call Americans racist.
