All of the detainees have been given tribunals to determine their status as combattants. Though really they should use the 190-8 instead of the rather arbitrary CSRT.
As for Jamil al-Banna:
While it isn't enough to hold a person(it's enough to at least look at him), he was close to Abu Qatada
a known associate of al-Qaeda. Thin, but at least there was a reason.
