Overseas Contingency Operations aka: Global War on Terror

Seems the War on Terror is over but there is a new operation taking over: “Overseas Contingency Operations.” Yeah, that’s much clearer. What did Shakespeare say; “A rose by any other name……”

"The end of the Global War on Terror -- or at least the use of that phrase -- has been codified at the Pentagon. Reports that the phrase was being retired have been circulating for some time amongst senior administration officials, and this morning speechwriters and other staff were notified via this e-mail to use 'Overseas Contingency Operation' instead."
