CID Report: 0180-04-CID259-80227

<p>An investigation into a detainee's allegation that he was &quot;tortured&quot; at a U.S. facility in Mosul in March 2004. Detainee indicated that after being arrested but before arriving at the facility, his captors -- American men in civilian clothes -- bent his thumb backwards, kicked him, and hit him with the butt of a weapon in the back of the neck. At the facility, which was very cold, he was stripped; allowed only two limited periods of sleep in seven days, and prevented from sleeping by being subjected to loud recordings and being doused with cold water; given only eight biscuits to eat in seven days; assaulted by a translator; and pressed on his joints by U.S. personnel in a manner causing severe pain and temporary paralysis. After his head was hit against a wall, causing him to bleed from his nose and mouth, and causing permanent loss of balance, he was taken to a hospital. However, he was later retreived by the same team of captors and &quot;I had the same ways of previous torturing, as well as pouring hot liquid on my back, and sitting me close to fire, which resulted in burning a part of my right leg, and they put a very hot lamp on my thigh for a very short time. At the end they threatened me that they would bring my wife and my mother and that they would rape them if I did not confess. When I asked them to bring a paper and write whatever they want, I would sign it without any objection.&quot; Detainee displayed healed burn scars on knees and &quot;unusual scars&quot; on feet, and an interviewer noticed that he &quot;walked with a wobble&quot;. Investigation revealed that the detainee had been arrested and initially detained by Navy SEALs from Naval Special Warfare Squadron 7. Notations in the investigative file indicate that a medical screening record generated on the day of capture showed several abrasions and bruising consistent with a &quot;rough capture&quot; and that a medical record generated thirteen days later showed second degree burns and singed tissue &quot;after being interrogated the evening prior.&quot; Moreover, the Army NCO who initially processed the detainee on his arrival at the Mosul facility noted that the detainee &quot;was scared, crying, and upset,&quot; and that when he made a hand gesture that the detainee interpreted as indicating that he would be sent back to the SEAL team, the detainee said &quot;I am not going back with them, you might as well kill me now.&quot; The NCO said that he suspected that the SEALs may have abused the detainee. The SEALs denied abusing the detainee, stating that he threw himself on rocks and rubbed himself against walls, and faked illness. A 15-6 investigation concluded that there was no wrong doing by any of the persons involved in the apprehension and subsequent detention and (inconsistent with other reports in the file) indicated that the alleged burns were not consistent with thermal burns. CID similarly concluded that the &quot;[i]nvestigation did not develop sufficient evidence to prove or disprove the allegations made by Mr. [REDACTED].&quot;</p>

They were armed white persons and some of them had a goatee. One of them ordered me to lay on the ground and he put a plastic piece in my mouth and hooded me and tied, my hands to my back, and took me to the car, and when the car started moving, and after a little period oftime, one of them tried to break my right thumb, and when he heard the sound of my finger twisting, he started laughing loudly. One of them asked me, "Are you_I said, "Yes." After a little time I heard a call in the radio telling them that there.$LAUspicious orange and white taxi, and they might be attacked, and after a little time mey had another call which told them that the danger was vanished, then one of them hit me six times on my neck back with the lower part of his weapon, and the other person who was sitting with me in the rear of the car and keeping my head down, kicked me on my back with his neck. When we arrived at the detaining camp, they stripped me and put water on my body, and that continued for seven days night and day. One of the persons, I think he was Iraqi, hit me several time on my head with his hand, and they turned on a very loud recorder near my head, and that continued for all the detaining period. That way continued for continuous seven days, where I had no sleep except for two limited periods, and that was done by the recorder and cold Water, and there was no place assigned for sleep as well, and the weather was too cold, and I was completely naked, as well as I got only eight pieces of biscuits along with the first seven days, which -' resulted in quick prostration of my body. There was-an Iraqi translator, who was the only person who practiced hitting me using his hands, and once he used his legs, but the Americans were practicing other ways of torturing, as two persons were pressing my joints in a way resulted in paralyzing its functions, which caused severe pains and incredible exhaustion starting with my feet up to my neck. When my health situation collapsed, specially my feet which were swelling too much, and I found difficulty in walking and keeping my balance, and that because once one of them was pulling my hood back and pushing my back with his foot and my feet were dragging back, he pulled the hood which resulted in that American's fall back, while my head was hit to the cemented wall, and the blood started bleeding from my nose and mouth, and since that accident I couldn't keep my balance while I am standing. After that I was transferred to the camp of detainees in AI Mosel air port, as a result of my health collapse, and when I entered the camp, they transferred me immediately to the hospital where I was medically treated for almost five to six days, and then I was returned back to the camp of detainees, and after two days I was taken by the same persons for six hours and I had the same ways -bf previous torturing, as well as pouring hot liquid on my back, and sitting me close to fire, which resulted in burning a part of my right leg, and they put a very hot lamp on my thigh for a very short time. At the end they threatened me that they would bring my wife and my mother and that they would rape them if I did not confess. When I asked them to bring a paper and write whatever they want, I would sign it without any objection. At the end they apologized and said that there is no personal thing and we only doing our job, and they returned me back to the camp of detainees for i1 For Official Use Only -law Enforcement Use Only Exhibit 0065-04-CID789 o180-04-CID259-80227 the third time, and then an interrogation about abusing me in Mosul took place, and the torturing stopped.
