A word for rebel that the Bush Administration uses to define freedom fighters in Iraq becuase the administration thinks that it sounds more like "inserted" implying that the rebel forces are from outside Iraq and therefore less legitimate.
"Let's not use 'rebel,' that will remind kids too much of Star Wars and they might start thinking that these people have a right to defend their country from foreign invaders. Use 'insurgent,' instead. That way it sounds like they're terrorists rather than just people trying to defend their homes."
- Donald Rumsfeld
