What distinguishes a civilian charge of treason versus being an enemy combatant? Richard J. Leon ruled:
"Enemy combatant" shall mean an individual who was part of or supporting Taliban or al Qaeda forces, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners. This includes any person who has committed belligerent act or has directly supported hostilities in aid of enemy armed forces.
- What's a belligerent act?
- What distinguishes directly supporting hostilities vs indirectly supporting hostilities?
- Is merely indirectly supporting hostilities excluded from the things that makes one an enemy combatant?
