To Be
Determined
Gary M. Bald said he was aware of prior concerns from employees in Iraq, Afghanistan
and U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba about interview techniques used by
Department of Defense. He said he learned about these concerns in October or
November 2003; prior to that time, he had no knowledge of detainee issues. He does
not recall any transgressions when he was there. He thought all of these problems
occurred before he arrived. Only thing that came up was promulgation of policy re:
what Federal Bureau of Investigation agents should do if they came in contact with
things outside Federal Bureau of Investigation way of doing things. He doesn't think
he read anything official; he thinks it was all anecdotal.
