    One more example, among many, where George was right and hussein and company were wrong.


    "Press Secretary Robert Gibbs may have returned the United States to the "War on Terror" -- or at least returned the term "War on Terror" to the White House glossary -- when he used the abandoned phrase Monday in response to a question about the current situation in Afghanistan."


    "The phrase "War on Terror" was coined during the Bush administration after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks but has not been used at all by the current White House, whose budget request referred to "overseas contingency operations."



    "Secretary of State Hillary Clinton confirmed in March that the administration had stopped using "War on Terror" but the president's own counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, went beyond that early last month telling reporters that "describing our efforts as a 'global war' only plays into the warped narrative that al Qaeda propagates."


    Oh,,do you think so, mrs slick willie??
