Skip to comments.Terrorists are the Real Victims? The Obama administration legitimizes the terrorist viewpoint

President Obama's top counterterrorism adviser knows very little about terrorism, and that's scary for America.
John Brennan, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, asserted in a speech last month that the United States cannot be at war with terrorism because terrorism is only a "tactic." Terrorism, however, is also a strategy and method, with a long history and extensive theoretical literature. This is why it is an "-ism" and not simply "terror." It is bewildering that Mr. Brennan would make such a glaring error on such a fundamental concept....
Mr. Brennan believes attacks on the United States should not be justified in religious terms, but this is how terrorists in fact do justify them. His obtuseness is dangerous. Knowing the enemy is a necessary precondition for victory. A good starting point is bin Laden's November 2002 "Letter to the American People" in which he explicitly addresses the question of why al Qaeda is at war with the United States. It is a comprehensive critique of American society, which he describes as the "worst civilization in the history of the world." Bin Laden's missive is steeped in religious language and is the product of a radical Islamic intellectual tradition that goes back more than a century.
Mr. Brennan's view of Islam as a universally benign force may lead him to dismiss some of al Qaeda's justifications for violence, which reveals willful ignorance. He may maintain that he knows more about Islam than our enemies, but they are dying to prove him wrong.

I can’t wait until we have an American president again.
Know what the kamikazes needed?
A big hug.
Fine then. We're at war with Islamofascists. Better?
Brennan —the man we pay to protect us— called terrorists victims of social, economic and politial injustice.
Napolitano said the southern border is “as safe as it ever has been”.
Think about that. We PAY them for this.
Brennan & Napolitano: GIVE US BACK OUR MONEY, you FRAUDS!
Sadly, that's true.

Will our citizens die to show him hat terrorism really is? Will he, and the admin first look to who in the U.S. they can blame when the next act of Jihad hits us?
Terrorism is a tactic, just like unrestricted sumarine warfare or the blitzkreig. Declaring war on it is just as stupid as declaring war on Kamikazes.
We should have, and still should, declare war on those organizations (and their supporting nations) that attacked us.
I would also note that we adopted our enemies tactics into our own if they were successful in battle. Blitzkreig became combined-arms, for example.
Terrorism has been show to be effective, so we really need to adopt it into our own playbook.
hat = that or it
Information about Gonorrhea Lectim aka keeping anti America liberals in political offices:
The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It’s pronounced “Gonna re-elect ‘em,” and it is a terrible obamanation.
The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted it in 2008...but now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-2 years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.
It’s sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout. It’s pronounced “Vote em out.” You take the first dose in 2010 and the second dose in
2012 and simply don’t engage in such behavior again; otherwise, or Gonorrhea Lectim could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.
