    April 23, 2013: The First Anniversary of the End of the War on Terror....

    April 23, 2013.

    Today is the first anniversary of the end of the war on terror.

    I'll bet you didn't know that.

    One year ago today, the administration did something that went largely under the radar until after the Boston Marathon bombing: They declared the war on terror to be over. In an interview with the National Journal, a senior State Department official stated, "The war on terror is over... 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" (all caps added).

    In other words, the administration folded. It has admitted defeat. But while the US is no longer engaged in a war on terrorism, recent events make it clear that we are still a target for terrorists. The man who castigated Bush for declaring "mission accomplished" while still carrying out combat missions in Iraq has declared an end to the war on terror even as we deal with terrorist sleeper cells in this country.

    Now they can devote their energies to dealing with real problems, like getting firearms out of the hands of conservatives.

    Right... just like there still aren't U.S. servicemen in Iraq... You have no idea how many people assume that.
