The Obama administration's recent move to drop references to Islamic radicalism in order to build relations with Muslim nations is drawing fire in a new report warning the decision ignores the role religion can play in motivating terrorists. Explaining the shift, Mr. Brennan said terror leaders "play into the false perception that they are religious leaders defending a holy cause, when in fact they are nothing more than murderers, including the murder of thousands upon thousands of Muslims."
