Schieffer: I Don't Care How Many Times You Say bin Laden Is Dead, Terrorism Is Alive
 
   
BOB SCHIEFFER, CBS NEWS: Call this a minority report, but I disagree with most of the pundits who thought Hillary Clinton stumbled last week when she criticized the president's foreign policy and then said she wasn't really criticizing it.

 Of course she was. But I thought her point was valid. Around the White House, they have been saying the crux of the president's policy is, don't do stupid stuff. Her words: "Great nations need organizing principles. Don't do stupid stuff is not an organizing principle."

 That really irked the president's people, but far more significant to me was what she said deeper in the interview, when she said: "What is needed is an overarching strategy to contain, deter, and defeat jihadist terrorism, a strategy much like strategy we employed to eventually defeat the Soviet Union during the Cold War."

 I think she's got that right. And I think the president benefits from hearing it from someone in his own party. I don't care how many times you say Osama bin Laden is dead. Terror remains alive and a threat to the United States. What we need to be talking about is how to combat and defeat it.

If we really wanted to win the 'war on terrorism', we would fight it on the psychological-level and it would stop real quick...

Yes, terrorism is alive and well, and it's old fools like Schieffer that have propped this Obama clown up for almost 6 years that are responsible.

Damn you Mr. Schieffer and everyone like you.

The "war" in which we are engaged doesn't really have to do with "terrorism".

Yes, terrorism is a tactic, but the war cannot be won by simply killing "terrorists".

It is something else which must be destroyed, if this war is to be "won".

Can you guess what it might be ??

The POTUS has declared there are no terrorists - except domestic ones.  They are to be called "makers of mischief." :3:
