Mari Harf, the State Department deputy spokeswoman, continues to peddle her "Jobs for Jihadis" idea.  She considers her logic too nuanced for critics to understand

There's been a barrage of backlash to Harf's inane comments.

Ah, where to begin?

Ken Blackwell asks are we giving-out  shovel-ready jobs for beheaders? 

Erik Erickson reminds us that western elites often fail to confront evil.

But, according to Jonah Goldberg, there may be a silver lining to the latest Obama buffoonery, other than giving us the catchy phrase of "Jobs for Jihadis."  That is, by continually making denials about the Islamic nature of Islamic terrorism is forcing people to discuss the issue.

What I also find faintly heartening is the oft-cited article by Graeme Wood, What ISIS Really Wants is getting a lot of attention, even by the left.
