"WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's advisers will remove religious terms such as "Islamic extremism" from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy and will use the rewritten document to emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror, counterterrorism officials said.
"The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: 'The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.' "
God forbid we should call Islamic extremists by that name, or any other but the most worshipful and friendly label. We should not play upon the murders of thousands of Americans in such a shameful manner. After all, it might anger and/or embarrass them. We most certainly wouldn't want to annoy those who dance in the street when our fellow countrymen are slaughtered.
