Yesterday, I was listening to Fresh Air with Terry Gross. The reason I was listening to that particular program is a whole other story. She was interviewing a lawyer who represented two detainees at Guantanamo who were released. She also interviewed council for the Bush administration. After listening to the whole show, I have a question:
What is the difference between 'Prisoner of War' and 'enemy combatant'? Using World War Two as an example, I would classify Nazi brownshirts and SS officers as enemy combatants because they were fighting against the Allies. After they were detained, they became Prisoners of War.
