10. More on the definition of enemy combatants from Solly Mack :
Yes, we know the difference according to the Administration between enemy combatants and prisoners of war. The Administration argues that Al Qaeda members don't qualify because they don't have these qualifications: (1) being under a responsible command; (2) having a fixed distinctive sign recognizable at a distance; (3) carrying arms openly; and (4) conducting their operations in accordance with the laws and customs of war.

It is clearly a wordgame designed to be able to throw away ethical standards.

DUers better start wearing uniforms, then we all cannot be renditioned.
