Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano has called the war against terrorism "man made disasters in an interview with Der Spiegel. Obama just recently said we are at war with Al Qaida. Who is right? Will Napolitano abide by the new memo? How will this shape liberals? Will they wake up and smell the coffee, or will they contine to bury their head in the sand? Isn't it dangerous to have such a blubbering idiot as homeland security secretary, when she doesn't realize the gravity of what's going on? Obama-Speak: Homeland Security Secretary Replaces 'Terrorism' With the Term 'Man-Caused Disaster' | NewsBusters.org SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country? NAPOLITANO: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur. Obama is in his speech: "We are at war. We are at war against al Qaeda, a far-reaching network of violence and hatred that attacked us on 9/11, that killed nearly 3,000 innocent people, and that is plotting to strike us again. And we will do whatever it takes to defeat them"
