Truest statement of the week

But if the speech is remembered for anything years hence it will be as the moment when the president declared 'The war on terrorism is dead! long live the open-ended game of whack-a-mole against diffuse networks!'  Yes, that's right.

-- Dan Murphy, "Obama rhetorically ends 'the war on terror'" (Christian Science Monitor).
