Really? A fair trial for all, unless you don't have enough evidence to convict apparently.

It's not ideal really, is it. However, in the circumstances, given the horrible damage these people (terrorists) can do, I'd rather they remained detained until evidence is sufficient enough to prove things one way or another...

That won't go down well with some, but there you go. :(

In the course of warfare, soldiers normally don't arrest the enemy, collect evidence against him, give him a lawyer, hand the case over to a prosecutor, and leave their role in battle to testify in court as often as needed. In fact, I would think that would be a pretty stupid way to conduct any war.

Usually, you capture or kill the enemy, and hold the captives until the war is over (unless a prisoner exchange is arranged).

In the U.S, those captured in war who for any reason needed to be tried, were always tried by military tribunals. The tribunals were of such a nature as to administer justice without conferring the rights of U.S. citizens upon people who were not, and were better able to guard matters of security.
