CID Report: 0353-2003-CID093-45256

<p>On November 14, 2003, a soldier provided a sworn statement saying that while he was deployed to Iraq, he &quot;saw what I think were war crimes.... In my mind, my chain of command did nothing to stop these war crimes, and allowed them to happen.&quot; The soldier stated that at Camp Red, Baghdad, he had seen Iraqi detainees &quot;with sand bags on their heads, standing on a brick with their hands behind their head, and concertina wire all around them. If they got off the brick they were manhandled. A lot of pictures were taken at the time .... Many show the mistreatment or crimes against the people that were caught at Camp Red. ... [Detainees] were put out in the open pavement where they would be made to sit for 6 to 12 hours at a time in the heat and sun. Their hands would be tied behind their backs, sometimes turning their hands purple. We were told by our [NCO] not to give them food or water....&quot; The soldier said he had seen detainees being pushed and kicked by U.S. troops &quot;every day [he] went down there.&quot; The soldier was also told that a Bradley fighting vehicle was sometimes backed up towards detainees who had been put on the ground in order to &quot;spook&quot; the detainees. Three soldiers and an officer from B Co., 3rd Batallion, 7th Inf. Rgt., which was in charge of Camp Red (apparently a former nuclear research facility), acknowledged that detainees were hooded and restrained at times, but denied mistreating them. Investigation closed for &quot;insufficient evidence to prove or disprove&quot; the allegations.</p>

We entered Iraq on 19 Mar 03, and arrived in Baghdad on 1 Apr 03. We stayed at the Baghdad International Airport for approximately one week. About two weeks later we arrived at the War College in Southwest Baghdad and took over from the Marines on securing the War College. A couple of days later, I had one Platoon go to the Power Plant in Baghdad, one Platoon go to a research facility, which we called Camp Red. The remainder of my unit remained at the War College, which we called Camp Baylor. I would visit Camp Red and the Power Plant once a day delivering Logpac. During my visits at Camp Red, I would observe the Platoon and the way they were handling the detainees. I would make my recommendations to them on how to take care of and treat the detainees. They had two different detainee areas. The main area was located inside a building; the other area was just outside the building. 1 would spend about an hour during Logpac and witnessed on numerous occasions the detainees sitting on the floor and listening to the instructions of the soldiers. There would be a lot of yelling when the detainees would not cooperate. The detainees that would give us a hard time and would not listen, we put them in the second holding area outside the building. Sometimes my soldiers would put sandbags over the detainee's heads while they were outside. The reason for the sandbags was our Command Post and sleeping areas were just away from the holding area. We did not want the detainees to be able to sit in the holding area and watch our operations. On many occasions we would put the detainees to work with the tasks of cleaning the building they stayed in, policing up outside the building, digging slit trenches, moving rocks and furniture around. We just wanted them to understand if they were caught looting then we would put them to work and try to keep them from coming back. The process at first was we kept the detainees for 24-48 hours and then release them. We were then instructed to start processing detainees back to Camp Baylor for out processing at the Airport detention facility. I would call before delivering Logpac to determine the number of detainees at Camp Red, to know how many vehicles I would need to transport them. We had forms to fill out, the NCO that was there would fill out the forms and then I would take the detainees to a holding facility at Camp Baylor. We would always transport them under armed guard either in Bradleys or in trucks. Q. Who was in charge of the detainee are at Camp Red? A sFamili b 7C -4 Q. Did you ever have detainees make complaints about their treatment at Camp Red? A. Other than wanting food. Q. Did you provide food to the detainees? A. Not when they first got there. Many times they would just show up and ask for food and if we did that then our numbers would have never decreased. They were given food after a while Q. Did you provide water to the detainees? A. Yes. Once we started getting a large supply of water, we would have Individual bottles for each detainee with their corresponding number on the bottle. Q. Describe the holding area outside the building of Camp Red. A. It had a stone ground with concertina wire surrounding it. It was about six feet in diameter. This was the area we would put detainees that were causing problems, talking back, or not following instructions. Q. Were these detainees guarded? A. Yes. Outside the concertina wire a soldier would stand guard. Usually it v, as just one soldier, depending on the number of detainees in this area. Q. When you would see the detainees inside this holding area, what were they normally doing?

We conducted numerous missions during the war, after the majority of the missions were complete, my platoon was sent to a Nuclear research facility which was called Camp Red. There were two places that we occupied in the camp, there was the Alpha section which consisted of Bravo I-1 and Bravo 1-2, which occupied the front gate and Bravo 1-3 and 1-4, which occupied the middle of the facility. When we took over Camp Red, the local civilians started looting the buildings inside the camp. I was told to keep the civilians out and to put a stop to the looting because the U.S. wanted to keep the facility in good shape so the Iraqi government could re-use the facilities. The first couple of nights we were catching approximately 60-80 civilians inside the camp looting. Some of the individuals we detained were found in possession of weapons. Some of my soldiers had bayonets pulled on them when they detained the individuals. There was never an issue with my soldiers; they used appropriate levels of force. There were two separate areas inside Camp Red where detainees were held. The first was an area at the front gate where detainees were held as they were caught, awaiting transport to my area. The first few days all the detainees were held at the front gate and then we started moving them to the second area in the back of Camp Red. I was in charge of the back area which Included one of the detainee holding facilities, Inside the dining facility we had a dining area wired off and that place was to house the detainees during the daylight hours. On the outside we had a holding area which had a canvass top to give shade and chairs underneath. We had a chain-link fence around it. The third area was an area to segregate individuals that were causing problems in the dining facility. It was made of concertina wire. l was told by my supervisor to hold the detainees for 24 hours, so as we caught them we would keep them for 24 hours. If they were caught during the day we would house them in the building and then at night we would move them to the outside area. After 24 hours we would release them. About two weeks into it, I got the word that instead of holding them for 24 hours, my 1 SG would pick them up every evening and take them back to Baylor base. When a detainee was caught, he would be searched. Normally he would be walked back to the detaining area. At that time we would take a marker and annotate the date and time they entered the detainee area. We would then either place them inside the detainee area or outside, depending on what time of day it was. If a detainee was belligerent or some cases violent, we would move them to the segregation area until they were ready to be moved back in with the rest of the detainees. In some cases, the detainees would try to hurt each other or themselves. We had some detainees hitting themselves with bricks, in these cases we would tie their hands with either flex-cuffs or 550 cord, behind their backs and place them inside the segregation area. Once they were inside the segregation area we would place sandbags over their heads. We did this because sometimes the detainees would try to bite each other and try to spit on us. We also did not want them to be able to watch our Command Post. We had some detainees that would jump into the wire or try to jump over the wire. For those types of individuals we would make them stand on bricks about 3-4 inches off the ground to limit their movement. There were only a couple of times that either I or my NCO's found our soldiers about to loose their tempers with the detainees. We were able to stop the soldiers and get them out of the situation before they could place hands on the detainees. I never saw or heard about any of my soldiers mistreating the detainees, Q, Were you in charge of the detainee holding facility the entire time your unit was at Camp Red"? A. Yes. Q. Did you witness any actions by U.S. personnel that you would consider to he improper while at Camp Red? A No. Q. How long were detainees usually held at Camp Red?

On 20 Mar 03, we crossed the berm into Iraq and went to Baghdad. Around 30 Apr 03, we began operations at Camp Red, Baghdad, Iraq. While at Camp Red, we were tasked out to catch any looters inside the facility. My Platoon Sergeant sent out patrols throughout the day to catch the looters. When we did catch looters, we detained them if possible. If they made it outside the gate, then we let them go. After we detained them, we took them to the holding area inside Camp Red. We held them there for 24 hours and then released them. While in the holding area some of the detainees would act up so we made a separate holding area for these individuals. It was about 20 foot square fence with concertina wire and bricks underneath the wire to hold it down. The individuals inside the separate holding area would be put inside there if they were acting up. If they were acting up too much, we would either place a sandbag over their head or lay them on the ground with their hands and feet tied. Some of them would try to jump into the concertina wire, so we would tie their hands and feet also. If they continued to act up then we would just keep them longer than 24 hours until we felt they had calmed down enough to be released. Even now and then we would have to go inside the holding area to check the restraints or put the sandbag back on their heads if they came off. Some of the people did make it over the concertina wire, so we would have to take them back inside. The detainees were given as much water as they wanted and some of them were given food if they stayed over 24 hours. About 3-4 of the detainees got hurt from trying to get out of the concertina wire and our medic gave them medical attention. Q. Did you witness any detainees being treated in an unfair manner? A. No. Q. What would you use to restrain the detainees? A. He had zip-ties until we ran out and then we used 550 cord. Q. Why were sandbags placed over the detainees heads? A. For security reasons. To make sure they didn't see what we were doing and then go tell their buddies what we were doing and when we were doing it. Q. How were the sandbags secured over the detainees heads? A. They weren't secured, We just put it over their heads. Q. Did any of the detainees ever complain about their treatment at Camp Red? A. Not really. Q. When you entered the segregated holding area, did you carry a weapon? A. No. Q. Why would you enter the segregated holding area? A. Just in case the bag came off their head, they fell into the concertina wise, check their restraints, or to let them in and out. Q. Did you ever witness any of the restraints being too tight? A. No. Q. Did any soldiers get into trouble for their treatment of the detainees? A. Not that I know of. Q. Were you briefed on taking pictures of detainees? A. No. Q.
