Americans will feel "a certain shock" after reading Thursday's report , White House National Security Adviser James Jones told USA Today.
Well, I was shocked.
The loudest (deafening, actually) part of Obama's remarks today on the war on the West is what he didn't say. Not once in Obama's self aggrandizing pap of a speech today on the testicular Muslim Christmas bomber did the Islamist president ever mention jihad or Islam.
And that is who we are at war with.
Al qaeda is the enemy. More obfuscation and deception. It was bureaucratic boilerplate.
Imagine, if you will, during, say, World War II, if the axis (enemy) press accounts of military operations refused to use the word America or United States.
For example, a D Day report would go like this: On June 6, 1944, nearly 160,000 Iowans, New Yorkers, Jersians, Alaskans, Texans and some black and white folks landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified sandy coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. More than 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft filled with all kinds of people supported the D-Day invasion, and by day’s end, Floridians had gained a foot-hold in Normandy.
Obama would only speak to "Al qaeda".
Al qaeda is devout Islam. Just as are Hamas, Hezb'Allah, al-muhajiroun, Armed Islamic Group (GIA, al-Jama'ah al-Islamiyah al-Musallaha, French Groupe Islamique Armé; Arabic الجماعة الإسلامية المسلّحة ), MILF, CAIR, ISNA, Fatah, Muslim Brotherhood, Chen Chens, Riyadus-Salikhiin, Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, Armed Islamic Group of Algeria, The Armed Islamic Group (GIA, al-Jama'ah al-Islamiyah al-Musallaha, Al-Jama’a al-Islamiyyah...
It is Islam.
