Today the focus is on President Obama’s request for more endless wars of aggression, stretching across all national, intellectual and moral boundaries. Or, as President Peace Prize himself put it in his new request, “enduring offensive ground combat operations.”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that the language in the resolution is “intentionally” fuzzy to ensure there aren’t “overly burdensome constraints” on the president as he responds to unexpected events. TIME
