Ooooh, what delightful timing. From this piece over at Section 15, we learn that the Bushista administration is casually dropping the whole "War on Terror" shtick, replacing it with the more pastel "global struggle against violent extremism" or some similar variation. But hold on there.
As I so presciently wrote back here (oh, man, I so love it when I see it coming), once a "war" is officially over, the Geneva Conventions make it clear:
Prisoners of war shall be released and repatriated without delay after the cessation of active hostilities.
So, is the "war" over or not? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
