Apparently somebody has forgotten to inform the jihadists that President Obama has declared an end to the Global War on Terror due to the imminent demise of AlQaeda. I know Obama has a Twitter account, so perhaps he could tweet them the news between holes on the golf course. It seems that the occupant of the Oval Office, who knows nothing about anything from Fast and Furious to Benghazi to the IRS or to DOJ targeting the free press, is omniscient regarding the Fraternal Order of Bombers & Beheaders. Somehow I fail to find comfort in his popular meme that the jihadis are now all self-radicalized lone wolves. I note the plethora of accredited universities and colleges offering legitimate on-line degrees, raising the question that if University of Phoenix can produce an on-line Bachelor of Science (BS) graduate in Business Administration, why are we in denial that the University of AlQaeda can produce an on-line Bachelor of Arts (BA) graduate in Jihadism? If Devry can produce Associate of Arts (AA) graduates in Computer Technology, why can't the U of AlQaeda produce on-line AAs in IED Technology? There are jihadist terror attacks around the world on a daily basis, whether markets bombed in Kabul or Baghdad, bombs at the Boston Marathon, or beheadings and bombings on the streets of London. Just because the perpetrators got their technical training and radicalization on-line rather than in a camp in NW Pakistan makes them no less dangerous, nor their victims any less dead or any less maimed. We are being led down the garden path by a clueless empty suit whistling in the dark and making politicized decisions about our security based solely on his dreams, hopes, and wishes. Pretty freakin' scary, if you ask me.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama left plenty of ambiguity in new policy guidelines that he says will restrict how and when the U.S. can launch targeted drone strikes, leaving himself significant power over how and when the weapons can be deployed.

National security experts say it's imperative to leave some room in the guidelines, given the evolving fight against terrorism. But civil rights advocates argue too little has been revealed about the program to ensure its legality, even as the president takes steps to remove some of the secrecy.

"Obama said that there would be more limits on targeted killings, a step...
