Clinton: 'War On Terror' Phrase Won't Be Used
NPR.org, March 30, 2009 · Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the Obama administration has indeed abandoned the term "global war on terror."
Clinton says that while she hasn't seen any specific orders, the new administration in Washington simply isn't using the phrase.
The term was a rallying cry for President Bush after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But the use of the term "global war on terror" is widely disliked overseas.
Reporters asked Clinton about the phrase Monday as she headed to Europe for a week of diplomatic meetings.
She said the absence of the "war on terror" language speaks for itself. Pundits have noted the absence, but top administration figures have had little to say on the subject.

Too damn bad the terrorist haven't abandoned their "war of terror".

So says the new Minister of the just-opened Propoganda Department. Just one more step toward the Red Star of Socialism.

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

Yeah, the new Global War on Terror is Obama and his bunch of clowns declaring war on the citizens of the US and ignoring the Constitution (as he already done).
