Now that the Obama administration has embarked on its second war (Libya, Syria) in which it is on the same side, funding and arming Islamic terrorist groups including al Qaeda, it’s time to pull the plug on any so-called war on al Qaeda. CYA. via US official signals end to war against Al-Qaeda.
The United States must prepare for a time when it no longer is at war with Al-Qaeda and when sweeping legal powers ushered in after the September 11, 2001 attacks come to an end, the Pentagon’s top lawyer said.
The address by Pentagon general counsel Jeh Johnson marked the first time a senior US official publicly raised the possibility of an end to the so-called “war on terror,” launched by former president George W. Bush in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.
