The New Term for the War on Terror

Doesn't include jihad, Islam or Muslim.

If you blinked, you might have missed it. The Obama administration has unofficially rebranded "war on terror" phrase that dominated public discourse throughout the Bush administration. The replacement phrase, carefully chosen, is "CVE" -- Countering Violent Extremism.

Ok, so what brilliant mind came up with that politically correct term?

The phrase first appears to have been used in public by the director of national intelligence, Adm. Dennis Blair (Ret.), and its utterance was picked up by Newsweek.

So how did that work out for you Blair? Dennis Blair resigns as Obama's intelligence chief

US President Barack Obama's national intelligence director has resigned after a 16-month tenure marked by a series of security failures.

Do tell. The country is in the best of hands.
