Ohio Representative Says Obama Must Declare War On The Concept Of Terror

On "The Tom Roten Morning Show" in April, Republican Rep. Bill Johnson of Ohio, argued that President Obama should start "declaring war on the concept of terror." He stated:

"And the same thing is happening now when we are denying that we are at war with terror. If I were the president, I would be declaring war on terror, not formally, and I’m talking about formally, having Congress do it. That is not declaring war on a nation, but it is declaring war on the concept of terror."

He also said that any Americans who join those who fight against the U.S. needs "to be treated as an enemy of the United States of America."

Obama does currently use the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) as a legal reason to kill American citizens who are fighting on the side of terrorists. When host Tom Roten complained that the Obama administration won't use the term "radical Islam," Johnson responded:

"What we've really got here, Islam has morphed over the last thousand years as it has tempered its violent tendencies. What we are seeing today in ISIS is actually going all the way back 1,000 years to the ideology that Mohammad advocated. That’s the way they did things."
