The Geneva conventions more or less govern our behavior in combat. Uniformed enemy POWs are treated differently than accused criminals for a reason. If you don’t understand that what that reason is, I will be happy to spell it out for you.

The Third Geneva Convention says nothing of non-uniformed combatants, which is why it is not applicable to the situation in Guantanamo, but just because there is no law saying that “enemy combatants” deserve due process, it doesn’t mean they don’t.

I see, so you would have preferred that we had simply shot each of these persons as they were found? That is the usual process for spies and others engaging in combat operations when wearing other than a military uniform.

Were we to have taken this course, there would be no prisoners at Guantanamo, and you would have had to find something else to whine about.
