The F-Word


I just had to go back and check this. Barack Obama did, in fact, refer to terrorists as “folks”:

And that is a strategic mistake, because every intelligence agency will acknowledge that al Qaeda is the greatest threat against the United States and that Secretary of Defense Gates acknowledged the central front — that the place where we have to deal with these folks is going to be in Afghanistan and in Pakistan.

UPDATE: President Bush has too, multiple times.
