Obama says US war aim in Afghanistan was to "decapacitate al-Qaeda" - note, not "decapitate"—

During his joint press conference today with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, President Obama managed to get himself a little tongue-tied:
Did POTUS just say we were going to "decapacitate" al Qaeda?—

Why yes. Yes he did.
To 'decapacitate' seems a lot longer and more involved than to simply 'decapitate'—

Sure is. Yet, shockingly, the lapdog media appears to have missed the whole thing. Wonder what’s up with that? They certainly didn’t slouch when it came to pointing out George W. Bush’s gaffes. Or Sarah Palin’s. What makes President Obama so special?
