NO MORE GWOT….Al Kamen reports:
Seems the incoming chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Adm. Michael Mullen, has banned the use of the phrase “Global War on Terror” (GWOT) and has prohibited using it “in any future correspondence,” according to a Sept. 27 e-mail from a Mullen aide.
That’s interesting. I wonder what he does want to call it? Or does he simply think that it’s intellectual laziness to refer to some broad kind of war at all, as opposed to something more specific?
In any case, good for him.
