TonyfromOz prefaces …..

Is this political correctness gone too far. The word ‘terrorism’ per se conjures up the wrong images, while ‘man caused disasters’, well, it sort of smooths over any uncomfortable thoughts, so people will not become so stressed. What the!

With one word, Barack Obama’s new Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, has done what the Bush administration couldn’t and abolished terrorism:

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.

This is the authentic Left – at home more with words than deeds. How safe is America now?

TonyfromOz adds …..

I encourage you to take the link and read the full article. Amazing stuff.

Here she comments on how young Muslims are being radicalised, and how this can be stopped by the new Administration, when others from all points of the Planet’s compass have failed so miserably. I suppose they could be encouraged into the field of Community organising.

How do you identify a youth who is susceptible to becoming radicalized? How do you work with that youth, his family and community to give them alternatives to radicalization?

She then goes on to comment on the Mexican border ‘problem’, effectively blaming the U.S.

The violence perpetrated by drug cartels along the Mexican border has truly reached a different quality. This is partly fueled by guns that are purchased in the US and then transported south across the border. We scan license plates to help us determine which vehicles we must stop and search.

Yeah! That’ll stop the slaughter right quick. Check those tags.
