…a department that exists solely to deal with terrorism…

…never use the words “terrorism” or “terror” in her first address to Congress?

    Because the Republicans already cornered the market on fear and smear.

    But wouldn’t it be like the head of the NASA never saying the word “space”?

    I mean, terrorism is literally the sole reason for the department’s existence.

    No, it would be more like the CIA saying something about intelligence.

    Homeland Security is just a hodgepodge of agencies that have been doing the same thing pre- and post-9/11. They didn’t have to say the word terrorist then. They probably used other words, like Communist, or Socialist.

    Oh, wait, who’s saying that now?
