Oh very good. Someone who attacks you is a terrorist. That kind of ruins the use of a perfectly good term by reducing it to mean "enemy".

Address the issue: does the Pentagon get to define "terrorist" any way they get to or does Congress get to define it or does the President get to define it?

This isn't mere quibbling. Defining "terrorist" is the very first thing that the programmers who write the datamining application will do. Otherwise what's the point of doing the data mining?
