Army Developmental Counseling Form re: Derogatory Statements Made to Detainee at Camp Bucca, Iraq

This Army Developmental Counseling Form was issued to a soldier that supposedly had an interaction with a detainee at Camp Bucca, Iraq wherein the detainee was not following the soldiers instructions and the soldier said in response " These guys do what they want; unless you are Jewish you cannot understand what it is like to deal with Arabic." The counseling also states that the soldier pulled out a Star of David necklace and made a threat against the detainee. The soldier denied the charges. There is a CID Investigation report number on this form.
