CVE (Countering Violent Extremism) has become the cancer underlying American policy toward terrorism and Islam. When the chief of NASA said that his main mission was to improve Muslim self-esteem that was CVE being put front and center.
CVE is the likely reason why the Benghazi mission didn’t get the security it needed. CVE is all about winning the War on Terror by getting Muslims to like us thereby “isolating the extremists”. What it translates to in practice is appeasement.
