Just Wait For the Executive Order

Well, at least we don't call them "undocumented combatants:"

When it comes to Department of Defense doctrine on military treatment of detained persons, “unlawful enemy combatants” are a thing of the past. That term has been retired and replaced by “unprivileged enemy belligerents” in a new revision of Joint Publication 3-13 on Detainee Operations, dated November 13, 2014.

I'm sure it is our fault that these terrorists belligerents lack documentation. Perhaps we need to check our privileges.
