US to al-Qaida: No More Mr. Nice Guy!!

If you slept a little sounder last night, our Attorney General explains why:

“[I]t is essential that we operate in a manner that strengthens our national security, is consistent with our values and is governed by law."

“"The change we've made today meets each of those standards and will make our nation stronger," he added.”

The Washington Post says that even “legal scholars” described the change as “important”. So what was this bold move that has legal circles abuzz?

“The Obama administration yesterday jettisoned the Bush-era term "enemy combatant"…”

Surely al-Qaida has to now be getting the message that, after years of pussy-footing around, the U.S. is finally serious about “[making] our nation stronger.”
