Is the War on Terror over?

Apparently it is in the eyes of the new administration.

Does this mean that Pennsylvania Avenue will open again to street traffic? Does this mean we can wear our shoes again through airport security? Does this mean all the cement planters are coming down from around the U.S. Capitol? Does this mean that airline pilots will keep their cockpit doors unlocked and their guns at home? Does this mean we can throw the duct tape out? Does this mean we no longer have to have a family evacuation plan? Did Iran get the memo?

Uh, no, no, no, no, no, no, and no.

ER ... it may be the White House's attempt to keep Jon Stewart from reading Obama quotes in "Bush voice" ;-)

Ahhh, Ignore it and it'll all go away. But the trappings of the police state are here to stay.

The "war on terrorism" was a stupid idea meant to obscure the name of the enemy. Terrorism is a tactic, not an enemy.

One might as well declare a "war on pincer movements."

I hear the funding for guns in the cockpit was going away.
