| "Enemy combatant" |
(enemy image, plastic word)
|A legal euphemism to create a category of persons who do not qualify for prisoner-of-war status under the Geneva Conventions.|
The phrase "Enemy combatant" is an enemy image used both to polarise opinion against those who are so labelled, but also in an effort to avoid legal problems such as the rights of prisoners of war.
Dropping the term?
