No war? Wrong

It’s official. President Obama says we are not at war with Islam. An ideologue’s minor distinction, unknown to the slaughtered Egyptian Christians of the Coptic tradition, and to the beheaded and burned bodies of newsmen and soldiers. He says it’s “an ugly lie” that there is a war with the West. Correct, there’s very little war on the golf courses that he frequents.

Add to that his usual drivel that economic grievances and oppression are at the root of the problem. From an intellectual’s elite point of view that explains everything, including terror and death.

Mr. President, come down from your pulpit in the ivory tower and tear it down. Give us back our White House.
