The awkwardness of the verbal gymnastics employed this week by the White House to avoid labeling the Taliban as a terrorist organization is not lost on the American people — nor is the administration’s absolute refusal to utter the phrase “Islamic extremists.”
Even the media, normally a stalwart ally, have picked up on it.

The cartoon was an instant classic as soon as it hit social media, with even “Mr. Wheel of Fortune” himself, Pat Sajak, weighing in.
Here are a sampling of responses, as seen on Twitter:
