Back in May, I mournfully hinted at The Administration’s use of language as a tool of deception. Today (via reddit), I find that the Cato Institute has released a brief titled, “Doublespeak and the War on Terrorism” [direct PDF download] which abstracts:

… A conscientious discussion of our policy options must begin with a clear understanding of what our government is actually doing and what it is really proposing to do next. The aim here is to enhance the understanding of both policymakers and the interested lay public by exposing doublespeak.

Draw your own conclusions.
