We've turned the corner in our counter terrorism efforts in the United States.
No longer is the United States in a war with terrorism or with Jihadists. We're in a war with al Qaeda.
All those police counter terrorism units around the country are going to have to rename themselves. They are now going to have to call themselves counter al Qaeda units.
This, of course, must be part of the president's economic stimulation package. This will make for "shovel ready" projects for uniform and police car painting companies as departments across the land change the labeling on both from "counter terrorism" to "counter al Qaeda." Brilliant!
It also serves as a cost saving measure for the FBI, CIA, NSA and Homeland Security. Imagine calling any of the above named agencies.
"FBI, where is the problem."
"Yes, I want to report some suspected terrorist activity in my town."
"Sir, are the people you are reporting believed to be associated with al Qaeda?"
"Ah, no I really don't think so, but they ARE terrorists, I have proof!"
"Sorry sir, we are no longer engaged in a war with terrorists. Our war is only with al Qaeda now."
Think of all the man and woman hours of investigative work that will be eliminated. This is an awesome move on the part of the Obama administration: declaring that there is no longer a war with terrorism.
As I said before: Brilliant!
