-xJ/~
This e-mail is in response to the below e-mail you sent to 7' This is my RFA. It seems most of your questions relate to bleeding at the time of exam, however that Is not what my AIR says.
1.
The medical records indicate that the patient's complaint was bleeding from the anus, but what was noted in the exterior hemorrhoid", "oval fistula" and later "anal fistula". Upon interview COL described this as an "anal fissure".

2. See above description.
I believe SSG itj,h.3 statement is referring to the initial screening that all detainees arrive at Camp Bucca. However, upon receipt of your RFA I coordinated with COL and requested "a medical examination specifically for trauma

due to sodomy".

~ .
3. MR"was not bleeding at the time of the examination.
'1~f •..
~
4. When I requested the examination of MR_, I briefed COL as to the allegations so he would be able to conduct an~rtaJ~~. W' en interviewed COL
'1CJ)~ _iii••• he related an examination of MR __1rnlisFli9d been performed and reported the results. However, I did not ask him how invasive the examination had been.
5. MR .was not bleeding,.at the time of examination. COL.stated that due to the scarring, the age of the injury was older then 2-3 'weeks from the time of examination, but a beginning time could not be established.
Hopefully this clears things up. If you have any more questions shoot me an e-mail with whatever you need.

This Is in reference to a CAT 1 RFA sent to your office under the above case number, your office
number 0093-04-CI0519. I need the following questions answered:
1. """ 1f1~~COL "" wherein COL ~tatedMr. -.v.­

documentation or swom statement shows this.
2. The examination reported n05.'·

3.
W"hat I need to know, is if COL'-examined Mr. J8anus and found it bleeding, did he document the bleeding or just remember it?

4.
Did COL ~xaminethe inside of Mr....anus for tearing? (no documentation shows an exam)

4. Is the bleeding consistent with the injury occuring a month prior to the examination. Basically, is it normal to still be bleeding from Sodomy when it occured a month prior to the examination date.
I don't know who's actually working the RFA, if it's not you could you please forward to the proper Agent and have them send me an aknowledgment of receipt. Thank you.

Caveats: NONE
Sir,
Attached is the memo regarding the alleged abuse we discussed. I have removed my conclusions, opinions and recommendations. You read those portions and know my position and the position of the command. This is a very easy case. If there is no medical evidence one or two days later when he was transferred to 39th BDE THF or a week later when he went to Abu then you should close this investigation. If there isn't medical evidence then this terrorist lied and you should find a way to charge him with perjury, filing a false statement and anything else available. That is the only way that these people will learn the value of their word and that there are consequences for a lack of integrity. If you need to interview members of the command let me know and I will coordinate those meetings. ­
'lC.,U i
I have found out why SA ~aslooking for me. Tell him to contact me regarding the statement from the source. Any additional contact of the ODAs should come through me for facilitation, especially right now due to TOS and the operational environment.
