    Of course, the other point is that he is not an "unprivileged enemy belligerent"; he is not even a belligerent, as there is no armed conflict. Abdulmatallab is a criminal suspect, not detained on any battlefield and not part of any armed group within the meaning of the laws of war. There cannot be a war against al-Qaeda and associated groups. They are criminal enterprises.
    Dump the war paradigm.
