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?

— Richard Morrison (@RichardMorrison) January 11, 2013

Why yes. Yes he did.

@michellemalkin – Obama invents a new word! “Decapacitate”. Like Decapitate, but with more letters!

@mazdaki @tobyharnden Decapacitate would cover giving them an ankle-sprain. Decapitate has no upper limit.

To ‘decapacitate’ seems a lot longer and more involved than to simply ‘decapitate’

Arm capacitators. FIRE capacitators! MT @zekejmiller @tobyharnden: Obama: US aim in Afghanistan2 “decapacitate al-Qaeda” not “decapitate”

— Hesiod Theogeny (@Hesiod2k11) January 11, 2013

Heh.

Decapacitate? #obamaFAIL

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?

Smartest POTUS evah! MT @zekejmiller @tobyharnden Obama says US war aim in Afg was to “decapacitate al-Qaeda” – note, not “decapitate”

Oh. Right.
