Edwards: “War on Terror is a bumper sticker”

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards was asked to clarify a statement he made in a recent speech where he called the war on terror, “a bumper sticker, not a plan.”

Edwards said that he rejects the notion that there is currently a war on terror saying, “that’s exactly what it is, it’s a bumper sticker.” He continued by saying if he was elected President he would do everything he could to prevent attacks but reiterating that currently the “war on terror” is a bumper sticker and a, “political slogan, that’s all it is. That’s all it’s ever been, was intended to do was for George Bush to use it to justify everything he does.”
