To avoid counting civilian deaths, Obama re-defined "militant" to mean "all military-age males in a strike zone"
Virtually every time the U.S. fires a missile from a drone and ends the lives of Muslims, American media outlets dutifully trumpet in
headlines that the dead were ”militants” – even though those media outlets literally do not have the slightest idea of who was actually killed. They simply cite always-unnamed “officials” claiming that the dead were “militants.” It’s the most obvious and inexcusable form of rank propaganda: media outlets continuously propagating a vital claim without having the slightest idea if it’s true.
“Militants”: media propaganda

Basically, if you're in the area and you're a male of military age, you are a terrorist, and if you are killed, then you are a dead terrorist.
