79. POWs can be held for the duration of the conflict
So if they're avowed AQ and Bin Laden hasn't called off the war he launched against us in the 90's, they can still be held.

Because these generally aren't 'lawful combatants' (and thereby normal POWs), I'm not sure how they should be handled.

What do you try them for in the court of law when you captured them shooting at you in a war zone?
