File this one under "There he goes again."

John Brennan, President's Obama counterterrorism czar, displays a gift for saying incredibly goofy and dangerous things.

The other day, he said the U.S. doesn't call our enemies "jihadists or Islamists because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one's community."

He said the same thing last summer, and earlier this month said the U.S. wanted to engage "moderate elements" of Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed terror group.

The really scary thing is that Brennan has Obama's ear, especially now that Dennis Blair has been booted as national intelligence director.
