Two and a Half Cheers for Joe Lieberman

Sadly, there is little chance Obama will pay any attention.

"On Fox News Sunday, Sen. Joseph Lieberman announced that he has written President Obama’s homeland-security adviser, John Brennan, expressing strong objections to the administration’s systematic dumbing-down of its characterization of the enemy we face. This has been manifested most recently in the leak last week that the National Security Strategy now being drafted by the White House will not use the term “Islamic terrorism” and similar formulations in describing the contemporary threat. The senator noted that this practice flies in the face of “thousands of years” of sound military and intelligence practice, which makes accurate characterization of the enemy a prerequisite for developing and executing strategies for his defeat."

Dropping the term Islamic terrorism doesn't make any less real and makes fighting it that much harder. I don't know about you, but I feel a whole lot less safe with Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the Democrats in charge of Congress.
