Enemy Non-Combatants?

Members of Gitmo were once referred to as “Enemy Combatants”.

This past week…without saying a lot….the guys who were members of Gitmo…got a totally new name but everything else was left intact. The new reference? "Individuals captured in connection with armed conflicts and counter terrorism operations," or "members of enemy forces," or "persons who [the President] determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, and persons who harbored those responsible for the September 11 attacks.”

Yes, a mouthful….if you were of a Bama persuasion. But to truthful…there really isn’t much that you can all bothered about. You are basically the same guy that you were a week ago…sitting in some tropic prison of sorts….enjoying less than friendly company because of something that you might have done.
