    Obama has been criticized for not using the word "terrorist" or "terrorism", "evil" or "murder". Apparently those days of soft-selling terrorism is over. Regarding the most recent beheading, Obama had this to say:

    Obama vowed the U.S. would not forget the "terrible crime against these two fine young men."

    "We will not be intimidated. Their horrific acts only unite us as a country and stiffen our resolve to take the fight against these terrorists," Obama said. "And those who make the mistake of harming Americans will learn that we will not forget, and that our reach is long and that justice will be served."

    Separately, Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement: "Barbarity, sadly, isn't new to our world. Neither is evil."

    "We've taken the fight to it before, and we're taking the fight to it today," Kerry said. "When terrorists anywhere around the world have murdered our citizens, the United States held them accountable, no matter how long it took. And those who have murdered James Foley and Steven Sotloff in Syria should know that the United States will hold them accountable too, no matter how long it takes."

    "no matter how long it takes".

    Hmm, very convenient. How about Benghazi? Oh well, that's only been 2 years so we will just have to keep waiting.

    Obama is not doing anything different. He talks big when it comes to specific situations but then he uses terms like ISIL instead of ISIS. He says that Muslims helped make this country. He will in the future refust to call terrorists terrorists when it is both public and appropriate.
