Skip to comments.Obama Deletes "Enemy Combatant" from the Program

When our national and international news outlets, awash in mind-numbing political correctness, decide to not use certain terms (you know, because someone might get offended), it really does only thing: avoid the truth. This is what happens when newspapers use militants to describe terrorist, for instance.
But its more dangerous when PC-induced stupidity infects our own president. With every day, I become more and more convinced that President Golden Calf is frighteningly ill-equipped to protect this country from the scum out there planning to attack us. Yesterday, Obama has decided to drop the term enemy combatant from the glossary in our war against the enemy of radical Islam. AP reports [h/t LGF]
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration is abandoning one of President George W. Bushs key phrases in the war on terrorism: enemy combatant.
In court filings Friday, the Justice Department said it will no longer use the term to justify holding prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.
Which is exactly Obamas goal. Eliminate the label for our enemy and suddenly eliminate the reason for holding them. How clever.
And recklessly stupid.
So this is how liberals/Democrats fight our enemies: Get rid of calling them what they really are and magically the threat will go away. NOT.

What. They’ve been voted off the island?
Well, that don’t mean they’s out the tribe now, do it?
By 2010 it’s just a guy who had a bad day, in liberal land. Go back to your regularly scheduled program sheeple, nothing to see here.
If there is an attack on his watch, his new name will be President Coward. He is playing right into the terrorists hands.
Instead of the war on terror,he’s going to say it’s ‘The disagreements with the freedom fighters.’
ZERO is fast becoming FAKEPOTUS Coward or more accurately FauxPOTUS Terrorist Sympathizer and Enabler! After all, his best friend is Terrorist William Ayers, why shouldn’t he like and admire Bin Ladin, Chavez, Quaddafi, Imanutjob, Hamas and others too numerous to list. Hopefully this is not correct, but so far there doesn’t seem to be much evidence to disprove it:-(
“Obama Deletes ‘Enemy Combatant’ from the Program”
Yeah. Now they’re going to use the term “Wayward, Homicidal, Socialist Youth”.
I would hope he shows as much compassion when Americans rise up against his marxist/Communist edicts
So what category are they going to put Rush Limbaugh into?
I prefer Bush’s method of deleting America’s enemies.
If there is another terrorist attack on our soil there will be a few Oblama voters awoken from their slumber! Not all..but quite a few more...the gig may be up for the Zero softie and leftist candy butts.
Dissenters, i.e. individuals not under his control or a threat to it. He wants this country, the world can attack at it’s leisure if it were up to him. An attack would only secure him more power. It will happen.
Just ask Nanzi Pelosi. She espoused that view numerous times over the last few years.

Bush had his faults but he stood for freedom. This person occupying the White House, and the majority of the people occupying the Capitol do not. Add the media into the mix and truly terrifying situation inevitably arises IMO.
Just hang tight. God has come to America's rescue more than once over the years.
We should find out in the next four years whether or not God decides to bless or damn America.
I'm counting on His blessings. Although I can't quite say why He should.
No it won't ... it would cause people like me to have WAY less tolerance for those around us who would still support his sorry a$$
We are the best and have been for decades IMO. The USA is the most diverse country on the planet. We became that way welcoming legal immigrants who wanted to better their lives. The foundation of this Nation. We are the UN’s ideal, and are resented/slash hated for it.
He’s an citywide community organizer. That’s all he knows how to do. Herd the urban folk.
