Congress made clear after 9/11 that an actor does not need to be a formal state to be an enemy of the United States. And it made clear that nations which harbor Islamic jihadists are enemies just like the jihadists. The U.S. cannot allow jihadists to gain immunity from attack just by hiding in nations whose governments do not fully control their territories-- whether they hide in cities or elsewhere in those nations.
