It's official. The U.S. is no longer engaged in a "war on terrorism." Neither is it fighting "jihadists" or in a "global war."

President Obama's top homeland security and counterterrorism official took all three terms off the table of acceptable words inside the White House during a speech Thursday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

"The President does not describe this as a 'war on terrorism,'" said John Brennan, head of the White House homeland security office, who outlined a "new way of seeing" the fight against terrorism.

It's not good when you say there is no longer a "war on terror" and then a few weeks later your spokesman comes out and uses the very term a few weeks prior the Admin said was no longer acceptable.

Action (as in "now is the time for action") — big government.
Balanced and sustained (as in "chart a course for growth that is balanced and sustained") — involving more big government.
Choice — the opportunity to select big government.
Competition — we choose who wins.
Compromise — accepting my position after I give a big speech.
Cost savings — $900 billion in new spending.
Create or save (as in "create or save 4 million jobs") — destroy or lose, as in 2 million jobs.
Engagement — a combination of unilateral concessions and America-bashing abroad.
Fact (as in, "these are the facts" or "to state a fact") — my opinion.
Honest debate — agreeing with me.
Incorporate (as in "incorporate ideas from Republicans") — include in the early stages of a proposal and then have Pelosi and Reid drop like a hot potato behind closed doors in the final version.
Irresponsible (as in "irresponsible behavior") — constitutionally protected.
Misinformation — facts, when presented by our opponents.
Neutrality (as in "net neutrality") — favoring one side in a dispute, especially when that side has supported your campaign and provided a senior White House staff member.
Necessary (as in "necessary war") — not really that necessary, at least when it comes to backing up your words with required manpower and funding and standing up to your liberal base.
Negotiations without preconditions — the position I took vis--vis our enemies during the campaign, then denied taking, but am now trying to force on the Israelis.
Nobody (as in "nobody disputes [these facts]") — no liberals or members of the mainstream media.
Non-profit (as in proposals to establish tax-favored, non-profit status for failing newspapers) — making official a condition that has existed unofficially for years.
Nothing (as in "nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have") — everything.
Plan (as in, "the [health-care] plan I am announcing tonight") — a really good speech.
Respect (as in, "respects the rights of the Israelis and Palestinians" or "the Iranians and North Koreans") — overrun (Israelis) or elevate beyond reason with no expectation of reciprocity (everyone else).
Responsibility (as in the "responsibility" to buy health insurance or America's "responsibility" to confront global warming) — big government telling people or nations things they have to do. (See "Action" above.)
Scare tactics — see "Misinformation" above.
Security (as in "stability and security" in health care or "true security for all Israelis") — you're toast.
Stand by our friends — desert our friends in order to "engage" with our enemies. (See "Engagement" above.)
