Responding to a question about Afghanistan during today’s White House press briefing, Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs assailed Bush/Cheney for having “under-resourced Afghanistan for the better part of a decade” and declared the region “the most important part of our war on terror.”

Whoops. That’s “Overseas Continegency Operation” to you, Bobby.

Flashback:

After days of confusion and denial about whether the Obama administration was officially no longer using the term “War on Terror,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that the Obama administration is no longer speaking of a “War on Terror.”

“I haven’t gotten any directive about using it or not using it. It’s just not being used,” said Clinton during a briefing with reporters aboard her plane to the Hague to attend an international conference on Afghanistan.

“The administration has stopped using the phrase and I think that speaks for itself,” she said at a different point during her trip. “Obviously.”

President Obama hasn’t yet read Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s report on Afghanistan delivered to NATO allies and the Pentagon earlier today.
