When is a Terrorist a Terrorist?

They are sometimes Terrorists....but not usually. Mostly they are militants, or some such label. I have yet to find when Palestinians, the opposition in Iraq or Afghanistan, or the bombers of Malaysia are "Terrorists"....They are militants, separatists, etc.

The story today on the death of Chechen leader Shamil Basayev labels him as a "Terror Leader" at FOX.......At MSNBC he is labeled as "responsible for modern Russia's worst terror attacks"; at CBS he is "most wanted terrorist"; and at ABC he is listed in the story as "author of modern Russia's worst terror attack" (sound familiar).....however in their headline he is simply "Chenchen Rebel Basayev Killed"......

In Iraq, there are no terrorists..... only militants. In Afghanistan they are also militants.

Quirky ideas in the MSM on who is what.......they are all wanton killers.

Is there a theme here that those who kill Americans, or Jews are not ever terrorists?
