Bush Abandons "War on Terror" Slogan. Fox Will Too (Watch).
Reported by Melanie - July 26, 2005
As recently as yesterday, Fox News began its reports from Iraq with a full-screen banner that read: "War on Terror." Fox has ignored the long-proven lack of a connection between Iraq, Saddam Hussein and 9/11. President Bush said Iraq was part of the "War on Terror," so that was that.
Tonight (July 26, 2005), the BBC is reporting that,
The Bush administration is abandoning the phrase 'war on terror' to better express the fight against al-Qaeda and other groups as an ideological struggle as much as a military mission.
I predict the "War on Terror" banner will disappear from Fox um, oh, Thursday at the latest.
