"Terrorist:" Latest Casualty in the murder of the English language

KABUL, Afghanistan- Terrorists launched a brazen pre-dawn assault Wednesday against the giant U.S.-run Bagram Air Field, the second Taliban strike at NATO forces in and around the capital in as many days.

At least 10 terrorists were killed and seven U.S. service members wounded in the attack on Bagram, which started at about 3 a.m. with rockets, small arms and grenades fired into the base, said Maj. Virginia McCabe, a spokeswoman for U.S. forces at Bagram.
Had this occurred in Israel, the assailants would have been 'militants'. Later in the clip, they are actually referred to as 'insurgents'. But what they for sure aren't are terrorists. This was a strictly military-on-military combat assault; not terror.
