Obama’s listless approach to terrorism

Three recent failures demonstrate the decline in effectiveness of anti-terrorism procedures under a peacenik president, who scrubs the word terrorism from agency terminology, while refusing to recognize Islam as a mortal enemy to civilization.

There is a striking parallel between today’s terror from Islam and the terror from revolutionary socialism in the 1886 - 1920 period.  In both situations, liberal-progressives perceived ideologies compatible with their own desires to overthrow the Judeo-Christian moral ethic that undergirds the original Constitution.

The ACLU in the earlier period worked actively to promote the cause of socialism and anarchism.  The president today bows and scrapes to Muslim dictators, while denigrating the United States and degrading our national defense forces.
