Best reference so far: this interview with someone who worked there. The legal status is murky, because the US has not acceded to certain aspects of the Geneva Conventions, (and, in the present dispute with Al-Quaeda, it is doubtful that the other side will accede to ANY of the Geneva Convention, removing the incentive for the US to accede).
