Stop Pretending We Are Not At War!

After the Christmas day attempted terrorist attack, former Vice President Dick Cheney gave his criticism regarding Obama's inadequate reaction:
"He seems to think if he gives terrorists the rights of Americans, lets them lawyer up and reads them their Miranda rights, we won't be at war. He seems to think if we bring the mastermind of 9/11 to New York, give him a lawyer and trial in civilian court, we won't be at war. He seems to think if he closes Guantanamo and releases the hard-core al Qaeda-trained terrorists still there, we won't be at war."
"Why doesn't he want to admit we're at war? It doesn't fit with the view of the world he brought with him to the Oval Office. It doesn't fit with what seems to be the goal of his presidency: social transformation, the restructuring of American society."
TexasGOPVote previously asked how Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was able to get on the flight after his own father had warned the U.S. about him 6 months ago? Republican members of Congress are wondering the same thing:
GOP members of Congress have also sharply questioned how the suspected terrorist could fly in the first place after his own father had warned U.S. intelligence authorities that his son was possibly under the influence of religious extremists.
When will our president stop downplaying terrorism!? What is he trying to prove?
