    I'm guessing government bureaucracy newspeak terminology.

    Nor does the original manner in which it is presented [news source/journalist] shed such light as to define items for the reader nor bothered to inquire regarding rhetorical translations.

    Nobody in power that I know of. Bit of a surprise. Not a former member of Queens guard nor one of the so called Tigers of the East who dominate military.
