In a criminal charge, it really doesn't matter what the popular definition of WMD is, anymore that it matters what the normal usage of "relevant" or "hearsay" is in the context of a trial.
I'm aware of that:

Also, there's a longstanding legal definition of WMD that is being used in the charge here (and has been used before, such as after the Oklahoma City Bombing with Tim McVeigh) that is separate from the popular usage of the term WMD.
We were talking about the distinction between the legal charge and the popular meaning.
Yes, I get that. And I was responding as well to foxhot and 137th Gebirg regarding that fact.
