#1 Victory by administrative fiat. Good luck with that! As the man said, you may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.

#2 "At that point, we must be able to say to ourselves that our efforts should no longer be considered an 'armed conflict' against al Qaeda and its associated forces," he said.

We'll just refer to it as Chicago style, political assassination if it's all the same to you.

said Johnson, a long-time political ally of President Barack Obama

Yes, I gathered that from the photo.

#3 jeh johnson has a long career being a flunky

he was a flunky for Clinton, for JohnKerry and now for Obama

in between he worked for a Wall st law firm

the remarks have so many caveats and qualifiers in them that they are logically without meaning but the leftist rubes who don't like the endless drone warfare and supposed to be comforted by those remarks

#4 Ladies and Gentlemen, our new Representative to Al-Qaeda. Soon to be representing our interests to them in person, with fig leaves and animal crackers.

#5 OK. This is officially a clown show.

...and when sweeping legal powers ushered in after the September 11, 2001 attacks come to an end, the Pentagon's top lawyer said.

If that were true, oh you blind sheep of obama, then you man would have done this already. Instead, what you got was an autopen, not even the respect of personal attention, to increase domestic espionage. Also, set precedent with the marked killing of a US citizen. What this article is saying is that future problems will be considered a police action, so what we will then need is a domestic police force on par with military requirements. Here is the groundwork for those jackboot police chants you damned liberals have been harping about. You are doing it, and don't think because you got high at some OWS event you will be safe. In fact you will be heeled first.

#6 "the Pentagon's top lawyer said"

Five simple words to explain why we fought 12 years against a 'tribal army' to stalemate instead of quick victory.

#7 The GWOT will be over when Radical Islam, Muslims + Clerics [Mullahs], stop obeying "ISLAM RULES, OR ISLAM IS DESTROYED" adage.

As things stand, THE QUESTION IS NOT "IS THE US DONE WID AL-QAEDA", BUT MORE "IS AL-QAEDA DONE WID THE US"???

"Post-US" China = "anti-US" Iran + Radical Islam = going allout for Global Superpower status AMAP ASAP ALAP - GEOPOL "PARITY" AT MINIMA, SUPERIORITY-IFF-NOT-DOMINATION PREFERRED.
