LANCASTER, Pa. - Barack Obama says the United States is engaged in a "war on terror" - using the same wording as President Bush to describe the global battle against Islamic extremists.
In his first sit-down interview with Bill O'Reilly of "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News Channel, Obama said he absolutely" believes the United States is fighting a war on terror.
Obama said the enemy was "al Qaeda, the Taliban, a whole host of networks that are bent on attacking America, who have a distorted ideology, who have perverted the faith of Islam."
Many Democrats reject the use of the term, which the administration has used to argue for a global conflict that extends beyond national boundaries, and includes the war in Iraq, which Obama opposed and called a "dumb war."
Run Barry.... Run for the middle..... See how well that works for you.....
