Obama-speak

First our illustrious leaders replaced the term "enemy combatant;" now we can't even use "terrorism" anymore:

DER SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

[Homeland Security Secretary JANET] NAPOLITANO: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur. (Source.)

Simply unreal.

As Newsbusters' Tim Graham asks, what is called if it's a female suicide bomber? Isn't "man-caused" disaster ... sexist?

I figured out what the new term will be for "enemy combatant" -- "future Democrat voter", given the Obama Regime's plan to resettle them in America after their release.
