The Dear Leader Has Saved Us...uhh...or not


An Obama Administration official told reporters this week that the War on Terror is now over.
The Weekly Standard reported:
“The war on terror is over,” a senior official in the State Department official tells the National Journal. “Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”
This new outlook has, in the words of the National Journal, come from a belief among administration officials that “It is no longer the case, in other words, that every Islamist is seen as a potential accessory to terrorists.”
The National Journal explains:
The new approach is made possible by the double impact of the Arab Spring, which supplies a new means of empowerment to young Arabs other than violent jihad, and Obama’s savagely successful military drone campaign against the worst of the violent jihadists, al Qaida.


But just hold on to your Bibles and guns there a minute folks. Just today we learn that that our own talented and courageous Janet Nepolitano has declared an alert status on the anniversary of bin Laden's death.
I guess Obama didn't get this memo in time to delay the "end of the war on terror".
  

US issues terror warning for bin Laden’s death anniversary

Days before the one-year anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death, U.S. authorities are concerned about possible “lone wolf” terrorists who may use the date to avenge the former Al-Qaida leader’s death, Fox News is reporting.

They have not seen any specific, credible threats to the U.S. homeland, Fox reports, but in an intelligence bulletin issued late Wednesday:
… the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Northern Command note that terrorist groups such as Al-Shabaab in Somalia, Northern Africa’s Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, and the Pakistani Taliban have called for revenge against the United States for killing bin Laden during the May 1, 2011, raid on his hideout in Pakistan.

The bulletin says Al Qaeda or its affiliates would view an attack “on this anniversary as a symbolic victory,” especially in the wake of losses suffered by Al Qaeda through U.S. drone attacks and other efforts overseas.
