Hitler's Chauffeur Goes Free!

Neither Emil Maurice nor SS-Sturmbannfuhrer Erich Kempka , Hitler's drivers, were ever prosecuted at Nuremburg. Why should poor schmuk Salim Ahmed Hamdan face the same vengeance as Goering, Milosevic or Saddam?
The U.S. case is that Terrorism is different to War. 'Tis expressly against the law of arms' - and so the gloves are off. As George W Bush texted:

"If you feed a terrst, or fund a terrst, UR a terrst!".

Fine. In that case those who sabotage civilian aircraft are terrsts, as are those who fund them. Why isn't self-confessed terrorist Luis Posada Carriles subject to the same military process instead of being granted bail by the US legal system? Why wasn't Bin Laden's chauffeur treated the same as a man wanted in several countries for the first act of midair terrorism in the western hemisphere and a string of other attacks on non-military targets?
 And why aren't those who funded him and his bloody campaign being prosecuted? Such as George Bush.
