Marine slang -- A clusterfuck was any group of Marines big enough to draw enemy fire, or several Marines close enough together to be wounded by the same incoming round. More generically, a clusterfuck was something that was all screwed up. Whenever three or more CAP Marines gathered in the open, talking or working on something, somebody was sure to call out "clusterfuck!" and one or more guys would walk away.
4 Marines were killed in a giant clusterfuck.

12.
Chaos. Anything that is occuring in a haphazardly. The situation is not even thinking about dreaming about having a sense of order. A clustering of items (usually people) in a fucked up way.
When people are trying to get off an airplane and retrieve their baggage from the overhead bins... that is a cluster fuck.

14.
Military in origin, but often used in paramilitary organizations like cadets. Used to describe a situation that has gone horrendously wrong. Almost always involves a large group of people that are disorganized: where the leader has failed.
(Can often refer to a performance by a group of people; drill performance, play, skit that fails to entertain)
J: "OMG... that unit has the worst drill I've ever seen..."
K: "It's like a huge cluster fuck!"
