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.

For over 1400 years, the goal of this 7th century creation has been the total domination of the entire planet and they have not stopped their barbaric murder of all infidels and defamation of all women since then.
There will never be peace with islam and sadly the only cure is eradication of every believer on the planet.
The myth of a moderate mooselimb, is just that.
They either believe or not and if they believe, then all non-believers are their mortal enemy.
You might want peace, but if your enemy believes that you and he are at war, then regardless of your participation in the fighting, you will participate in the dying.
Worst part is, so many soft targets. They don't have to hit Washington, although it'd be a prize for them. All they have to do is irradiate an obscure corner and it's martial law and dictatorial powers for dear leader.
So...I guess...for them it sounds like a plan.
Al Queda is not our worst enemy. The AP is a far more destructive force than AQ.
The people in the White House are far worse and more destructive than any outside enemy.
If reelected there will be blood in the streets as riots in the cities result from being starved by closed interstate hiways
If someone is at war with you, a state of war exists, whether or not you're stupid enough to pretend that it doesn't.
And so, since we know for a fact that Islam is still at war with us, this "announcement," amounts in fact to surrender, by definition.
Well this is great news! So now the feds can begin dismantling that fascist monstrosity aka the ‘Department of Homeland Security’ and their little jackboot sockpuppets the ‘TSA’, because if the War on Terror is “over”,
Gotta read between the lines. He only said the war against muslim terrorism is over, not the war against Americans.
I think its all about the campaign and people will see though it.
We’re talking about Americans. At least half the population is too stupid to see through it. Just wait till butt kisser Biden opens his yap about obama single handedly defeating al-Qaeda.
So...the US got Al Qaeda to sign an unconditional surrender???
If not, he’s an idiot.
In conclusion: He’s an idiot! If your enemy’s still out there, still trying to kill you, and still even a fraction capable, then the war’s not over.
9/11 happened because we ignored the enemy’s declaration of war against us: WTC1, Khobar Towers, Kenya/Tanzania embassies, the USS Cole....
Obama is FINISHED, it is the economy stupid that will do him in.
Not anymore. Half the population thinks we’re in an economic boom greater than the Roaring 20’s.
Read those words carefully.
He’s admitting they’ve won.
So, when will the war on airlines and their passengers be over?
Let’s see if THEIR rhetoric and violence abates .
He is not admitting that “they” won.
He is crowing that “we” because he is part and parcel of the muslims won.
Do not fool yourself, the only reason that the Republican Party anointed Romney to be the Republican nominee is that he will lose to obama.
The bad news is, that Terror’s war on us continues.
Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is ‘Over’
Then stop groping me at the airport...
No, obozo has not resigned, and the war on terror within USA is ON until obozo is in Gitmo.
Everyone is "helpless" is the meme created by fascist Obama.
Now get rid of the TSA, dept of homeland security, and work on actual defense so these attacks don't happen again while not taking away our freedoms.
Semantics with the same intent. We agree, just not on exact phrasing.
He’s admitting they won.
I didn’t say which side _he_ was on, which is obvious as he seems pretty happy about it.
