Many of us have made fun of the term “War on Terror” as it implies combating a tactic rather than those who employ it. It’s generally attributed to the Bush Administration which uses the term to justify just about everything under the sun. But I was surprised to find out how far back the term actually goes.
I was looking at old Time magazine covers online when I ran across this one from almost 30 years ago (October 1977).
Looking around at the old Time covers it strikes me how many I actually remember. Long before blogs or the internet, I read a lot of news magazines and the covers have stuck with me.
