Well, thank God THAT'S over with 

I wonder if this will get me a different ribbon next time I deploy?
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.

The only terminology that Mr. Brennan said the administration is using is that the U.S. is "at war with al Qaeda."
Fortunately for us, al Qaeda is the ONLY terrorist organization in the world now, apparently. So if that's truly the case, then I guess we must've been doing something right all this time then... Yeaaa, us!...
