Some things must be read to be believed. Here is Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano speaking to
Der Spiegel
:

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first
testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you
never mentioned the word “terrorism.” Does Islamist terrorism
suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there

is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did
not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused”
disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates
that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a
policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.

Soon she will amend that offensive description of terrorism to
“human-caused” disasters, no doubt. (Hat tip:
