Hopefully by now you have heard of the national defense authorization act for 2012. It does contain some vague language, if you look at Sec 1031:

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?c112:2:./temp/~c11221O0bl:e548990:

"(2) A person who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces."

The vague part is "including any person who has committed a belligerent act" - who judges whether an act is belligerent? Belligerent to who? Isn't belligerence subjective?
