Recently, on a TV news report, I saw a young woman from Paris who said that she survived the terrorist attacks in Paris by “playing dead.” I am both pleased and indebted to her. I am pleased because she survived. I am indebted because she helped me to understand President Obama’s policy against terrorists. If we play dead he hopes that the terrorists will step over us and kill someone else.
