NOT TO MENTION THAT NUREMBERG CAME ONLY AFTER HOSTILITIES HAD ENDED:

A Gitmo trial beats judgment at Nuremberg (Audrey Hudson, December 12, 2007, Washington Times)

Nearly 100 foreign enemy combatants to be tried at Guantanamo Bay will have more rights than Nazi war criminals who faced the Nuremberg tribunal, a Senate panel was told yesterday.

Detainees in the war on terror will have the presumption of innocence and an automatic appeal, the latter not even afforded to U.S. citizens, said Brig. Gen. Thomas W. Hartmann, legal adviser to the Convening Authority for the Office of Military Commissions.
