The Obama administration, through a string of delicate shifts in terminology, has softened the essence of the war against Islamic extremism.
Some key policy terms for the Obama administration:
Detainees: Custodial informants
Terrorists: Improvised ideologues
Deficit: Long shortfall (or inverted surplus)
One trillion dollars: Nth power financing
Abortion: Reproductive choice
Border violence: Territorial imperative
Torture: Non-verbal questioning
Taxes: Income tweaks
And I suppose those hijackers that flew into the towers, causing that "man-caused disaster" are now "disgruntled airline passengers".
**= the statists would probably rebrand my post title as "A Rose By Any Other Name..."
This Rebranding certainly won't make these problems disappear or make us any safer. Its just a way of trying to ram their liberal philosophy down everyone's throat.
It reminds me of Orwell's Newspeak.
