Remember when President Obama told the world that Al Qaeda was close to being completely defeated?
“The president has indicated and will indicate again that he rejects the notion of global war on terrorism, which is an amorphous definition that applies to a tactic.”.-White House
He was wrong.
According to an Associated Press story, the House and Senate intelligence committees have concluded that the “worldwide terror threat is growing and changing,” and that Americans are not as safe as they use to be.
“Terror is up worldwide,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “The statistics indicate that. The fatalities are way up.”
The pre-911 mindset that many Americans fear the United States government has adopted in dealing with Islamic fundamentalism, may have been realized, now that intelligence agencies can now confirm that terrorism is on the rise.
