I think I have found an alternative, based on this section of memoir I found here:
Dave’s graduation from the Basic School at Quantico (which the grandmother referred to silently as Guantánamo) took place this spring...In a filled auditorium, a colonel welcomed them. He referred to himself as a teacher and the trainees as students. Quantico was a “campus.” The course was divided into segments: leadership; academics; military skills. The men were being trained not to be soldiers or marines but “warfighters.”
So, does "terrorfighter" work?
