Joe W. Pitts III: Although some top administration officials had flirted with the new moniker "Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism," the President's reversion to the tried-and-true "Global War on Terror" (GWOT) handle seems to be sticking. Without such forceful, distracting language, the administration would have to do the hard work of actually tracking down bin Laden, admit that it can only manage and not eliminate terrorist risks, and pay new attention to the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Making a change now smacks of "nuance" and would be like admitting a - gasp - "mistake."
