President Obama and his various quislings and underlings still cannot bring themselves to say that the USA is under attack by radical Islamists. This is the self-destructive garbage that comes from the Obama administration every day. This is the kind of stuff that makes of us the "weak horse" that Islamists use to justify their attacks on the US.

We have two examples of this today, one from a representative of the Department of Homeland Security and one from Gaffemaster Joe Biden.

First up, our erstwhile VP. Ol' Slow Joe Biden told Newsweek's Leslie Gelb that the Taliban isn't our enemy, either. You know, despite that we invaded Afghanistan to oust them from power, and all.
    Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That's critical. There is not a single statement that the president has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy because it threatens U.S. interests.
Next we have assistant defense secretary for homeland defense Paul Stockton refusing to agree with Rep. Dan Lungren's (R.-Calif.) characterization of al Qaeda as "radical Islamists."

    Wednesday Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) and Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) opened a hearing to examine the emerging threat to the military from homegrown terrorists within the U.S. and named the armed services as the "most sought-after" target for radical Islamist extremist groups.

    Rep. Dan Lungren (R.-Calif.) asked Paul Stockton, assistant defense secretary for homeland defense, whether "we are at war with violent Islamist extremism.
The idiocy from the Obama administration is startling. They won't even deign to identify the enemy and the enemy IS radical, terrorists driven by a fanatical devotion to Islam. But we can't even get Obama and his comrades to identify our enemy, an enemy that has no problem announcing their own animus toward the USA.
