What Will U.S. Do With Umm Sayyaf?

Daily Beast has an update on U.S. captive Umm Sayyaf, widow of the Abu Sayyaf, killed in the U.S. raid. Apparently, she may be held for months lacking charges. The U.S. still hasn't chose what to do with her.

What happens if the U.S. captures copious ISIS fighters in Iraq or somewhere else? Will a new detention center have to be built? Is their long-term detention authorized under the ancient AUMF? There are a lot of unknowns.

I'd still like to know the real name of Abu Sayyaf and his role in ISIS. The innumerable pseudonyms and similes so far are unconvincing. Can't we at least have a photo?
