According to the 1949 Geneva Conventions, these people could have been shot on sight, as they were foreign, non-uniformed combatants. But there was considerable military information in their heads regarding the terrorists groups to which they belonged. The problem is that w/the passage of years, that "inside info" is of limited use, but as any attempts to return them to their native countries would result in their immediate incarceration and execution, US laws (and various international treaties) prohibit their release. What is one to do w/stateless terrorists?
