This Article suggests that both the Combatant Status Review Tribunals (CSRT) and the Geneva Convention III (GCIII), Article 5 tribunals are inadequate to accurately determine the correct status of prisoners captured in the GWOT. Neither the United States implementing regulations under Article 5 nor the CSRT procedures provide the sufficient means for determining status of prisoners. Because of these inadequacies, this Article proposes a modified model that ensures due process is provided to prisoners, particularly when making prisoner status determinations under International Humanitarian Law.
