Top New Names For ‘Enemy Combatants’

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Guantanomo inmates are no longer dubbed “enemy combatants,” so what should they be called?

President Obama’s administration has banned the use of “enemy combatants,” a term coined by George W. Bush after 9/11 to refer to prisoners suspected of terrorism.

However, the controversial detainees still need a name, so Corey Deitz, author of Vilified! Red Meat For Conservatives From A Guy Who’s Got A Lot Of Beefs (Deitz), has just released a list of the top 10 new names for “enemy combatants.”

No. 1 is “Detainee, Linguini, Martini, Bikini,” a nod to the made-for-TV infomercial for the “Slap Chop” kitchen appliance.

Other new names for the prisoners include: “America Hater Since Knee-High To A Jihad,” “Roadies For The Taliban,” and “The Combatants Formerly Known As Enemy.”

Deitz is surprised that Obama’s camp is “ready to reduce the status of people who are trying to kills us,” and thinks it’s all part of a political ploy to win over Democrats on the far left.
