The War on Terror Offends Muslims

according to a DHS official. The phrase “the war on terror,” that is. (Although, come to think of it, the actual war may, too, but he is not asking to call it off.) I can see an argument for not calling it a “war on Islamism”–which is not to say I agree with it–but this seems like terminal silliness.
