Banning the use of the word, Islamist, Obama has turned this into the Global War on ?
We've all heard of the love that dare not speak its name, but to turn the enemy into a nameless foe is preposterous. Sodahead thinks so, too:
In Senate testimony, Robert Mueller does everything he can to suggest that he is talking about Islamic extremists. He cites Nidal Hasan's mass murder of American soldiers at Fort Hood. He cites Mumbai attacks planner David Headley.
But thanks to Obama's banning of any reference to Islam in relation to terror threats, Mueller is unable to specify that it isn't animal rights activists or disgruntled taxpayers who he is calling "an equally serious threat" as al Qaeda. He can only describe the danger as "US-born extremists," of no particular persuasion.
Not allowed to name the enemy, Mueller sounds like Ray Charles telling Stevie Wonder where to steer the car.
