'Jihadists and 'global war' no longer acceptable terms?

'Jihadists' and 'global war' no longer acceptable terms

It's official. The U.S. is no longer engaged in a "war on terrorism." Neither is it fighting "jihadists" or in a "global war."

"The President does not describe this as a 'war on terrorism,'" said John Brennan, head of the White House homeland security office, who outlined a "new way of seeing" the fight against terrorism.

The only terminology that Mr. Brennan said the administration is using is that the U.S. is "at war with al Qaeda

    Well, aren't we? It's a fine definition. If you ask me, "war on terrorism" is vague. War on Al Qaeda, who was actually behind the 9/11 bombings, by the way, is accurate, and appropriate.
