    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.

    Oh but they will be swayed by the hope and the change and the change and the hope!

    I mean, Hillary sat down with an Iranian foreign minister today, and I am sure things are just peachy now!

    For Heavens sake we wouldn't want to offend anybody overseas like perhaps...... terrorist.I'm thinking around July we will get a taste of the global war on the United States. I'm sure we'll respond with a well written condemnation.

    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).

    Then stop terrorizing the globe.
