Terrorist (can I say that?) attack on Washington DC

The ever-present threat to Washington D.C. by terrorists has now gotten a bit more present: Baitullah Mehsud, the Pakistan Taliban leader who American officials fear could be an even bigger threat to the United States than Al Qaeda’s Osama bin Laden says there will be a spectacular attack on the nation’s capital “soon.”

I wonder if BarryO classifies this kind of talk as potential "terrorism" or if he views it as Overseas Contingency Operations "dialogue"?

With his new budget slashing military funding, we are stepping back to a pre-9/11 mindset. This is very dangerous.

Well, they make a threat about every day. Question is, can they carry through with it?

Lets hope all threats continue to be taken seriously. It seems as if we are walking the path towards ignoring these things with the adminstration's focus on changing terminology so it will not offend.

Maybe Jay Leno or David Letterman will ask B.O. the tough questions about terrorism when he gets back from his G20 ass kissing session.

I don't think so. Changing the terminology to help the american people be less paranoid and full of fear? Yep

Has nothing to do with the administration's ability to prevent attacks.

Terminology makes you more or less paranoid? Yikes. Guess Obama is getting his Nanny State. They need Dr. Phil to blog and respond to the whimpers of these paranoid americans on whitehouse.gov.

Paranoid because of policy, yes. Paranoid because of a certain choice of words, no.

I think that's what GW said on Sept. 10th.
