Obama's Confounding Incoherence

Could someone puh-leeze explain Barack Obama's incoherent policy re jihad to me? On the one hand he's hunting down the holy war's biggest fish (Osama, Anwar) in far-off parts of Dar al Islam. On the other, he's bowing down, sucking up, and acting in general like a huge sharia-heeding dhimmi at home.

What gives?

In today's FrontPage magazine, Robert Spencer weighs in on the domestic dhimmitude aspect of the Obama M.O.:
It has been a long time coming, but the Obama Administration has now officially banned the truth. Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole declared Wednesday at a conference in Washington that he had “recently directed all components of the Department of Justice to re-evaluate their training efforts in a range of areas, from community outreach to national security.” This “reevaluation” will remove all references to Islam in connection with any examination of Islamic jihad terror activity. The Obama Administration has now placed off-limits any investigation of the beliefs, motives and goals of jihad terrorists.
Dwight C. Holton, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, emphasized that training materials for the FBI would be purged of everything politically incorrect: “I want to be perfectly clear about this: training materials that portray Islam as a religion of violence or with a tendency towards violence are wrong, they are offensive, and they are contrary to everything that this president, this attorney general and Department of Justice stands for. They will not be tolerated.”
Holton said that he had spoken with Attorney General Eric Holder about FBI training materials that Holton claimed were “egregiously false,” and that Holder “is firmly committed to making sure that this is over….we’re going to fix it.” Holton said that this “fix” was particularly urgent because the rejected training materials “pose a significant threat to national security, because they play into the false narrative propagated by terrorists that the United States is at war with Islam.”...
America may not be at war with Islam, but those who heed Islam's siren call of jihad (of whom there are plenty) are definitely at war with America.

Or do the Obami think that that Great Satan thing is a term of endearment?
