Wonder what you would find if you frisked President Obama’s changes to our National Security Strategy?
Answer: The terms “Islamic radicalism” and “Jihad” will no longer be used.
Hmm… Appeasement? Or just another liberal attempting to hump the leg of ‘political correctness’? Either way, President Obama has been on a roll this week! First, President Obama reversed 60 years of U.S. nuclear policy and pledged we would not retaliate with nuclear weapons. Now this nonsense…
FOX News reports:
President Barack Obama’s advisers will remove religious terms such as “Islamic extremism” from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy and will use the rewritten document to emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror, counterterrorism officials said.
The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: “The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.”
That shift away from terrorism has been building for a year, since Obama went to Cairo, Egypt, and promised a “new beginning” in the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world. The White House believes the previous administration based that relationship entirely on fighting terror and winning the war of ideas.
Just great… Symbolism over substance. 🙄
