The unidentified man was captured after an attack on Coalition forces in July 2003. He is believed to be a high-ranking member of the terrorist group Ansar al Islam.

Geneva Convention laws require prisoners of war be assigned a detainee number and notification made to the ICRC. The Pentagon counters that the man is an "enemy combatant" and thus is not afforded the protections of the Geneva Convention.


The second statement makes it very clear. He is not a POW. He is a terrorist and murderer. If you don't play by the rules, the rules don't apply.
