98. Everything required is in the first clause of the 5th Amendment
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger".

A Grand Jury presentment or indictment is required in order to hold Alaqui to answer for his crime. To do otherwise violates the 5th Amendment.

It's very clear, and no amount of hand waving about the Authorization for the Use of Military Force can change that.
