Military trials since they are basically military personnel using military equipment and tactics. Do it in the muddle east, not over here. Preferably Israel.

if you classify them as "military" then the Geneva conventions apply. Something the americans have tried very hard to keep from happening.

And they can't do a civilian case either since they haven't processed them correctly. A catch-22.
