I know that military tribunals are the method for enemy combatants. IF...IF...he is taking the stance that they are considered enemy combatants(even though we don't think they are and he doesn't either) the government has taken this stance.

Read the Wikipedia entry to see that the Supreme Court ruled that Gitmo detainees are the only ones recently to fall under military jurisdiction:
Second see that Rand doesn't necessarily believe that a lot of the detainees were ever enemy combatants. However, since they have been classified as such...the method at this point is military tribunals. Watch him talk about the problems of Gitmo at :40 :
