entitled to the advice and assistance of military counsel provided free of charge or civilian
counsel provided by me at no expense to the Government

After the record of trial is prepared, the convening authority will act on my case. The
convening authority can approve the sentence adjudged (as limited by a pretrial
agreement), or he can approve a lesser sentence, or disapprove the sentence entirely. The
convening authority cannot increase the sentence. He can also disapprove some or all of
the findings of guilty. The convening authority is not required to review the case for legal
errors, but may take action to correct legal errors.

3.
I have the right to submit any matters I wish the convening authority to consider in deciding what action to take in my case. Before the convening authority takes action, the staff judge advocate will submita recommendation to him This recommendation will be sent to me and/or my defense counsel. At that point, I will submit any matters I wish the convening authority to consider, or matters in response to the Staff Judge Advocate's recommendation, and such matters must be submitted within 10 days after I or my counsel receive the recommendation of the staff judge advocate, whichever occurs later. Upon my request, the convening authority may extend this period, for good cause, for not

more than an additional 20 days.
4.

that Court, I may request review by the Supreme Court of the United States. I would have
the same rights to counsel before those courts as I have before the USACCA.

6. If neither a punitive discharge nor confinement for a year or more are adjudged or
approved, my caw will be exernined by the Office of the Judge Advocate General for any
legal errors and to determine if the sentence is appropriate. The Judge Advocate General

the Army Court of Criminal Appeals.

1. Purpose. To forward a petition for clemency submitted by Staff Sergeant Ivan Frederick II, under the provisions of Rules for Courts-Martial (RCM) 1105 and 1106, through his defense counsel. The matters submitted by Staff Sergeant Frederick, through his defense counsel, are enclosed. Pursuant to RCM 1107, you muSt consider thetdefense submission prior to taking

2.
Discussion. On 2 June 2005, ColonelS, in his capacity as the III Corps and Fort Hood Staff Judge Advocate, signed the pos -tria recommendation in this case and directed that document be served on Staff Sergeant Frederick's defense counsel for comment.

3.
Allegations of Legal Error. SSG Frederick's counsels' submission alleged legal error. Specifically, Defense Counsel have alleged as error the failure of the Convening Authority to move the trial out of Iraq; the denial by the Military Judge of the defense motion to move the trial from Iraq, which resulted in the denial of live witnesses on behalf of SSG Frederick and denial of SSG Frederick's right to a fair trial; and that the sentence imposed by the Military Judge was facially excessive. The defense submission may also be read to raise legal error when counsel for the Accused imply that the Military Judge was subject to political pressure resulting in a more severe sentence for the Accused. I disagree with all of the allegations of legal error. No corrective action is required.

4.
Clemency Request. SSG Frederick's defense counsel has requested that you reduce the confinement portion of SSG Frederick's sentence by four years.

5.
Recommendation. In accordance with RCM 1106, I have carefully considered the enclosed matters. In my opinion, clemency is not warranted. Accordingly, I now specifically adopt as my own the post-trial recommendation of the prior III Corps and Fort Hood Staff Judge Advocate,

-64)-2.) ColonelS
and recommend that you approve only so much of the sentence as provides for re uc ion o the grade of Private (E-1); forfeiture of all pay and allowances; confinement for eight years; and a dishonorable discharge and, except for the part of the sentence extending to a dishonorable discharge, order the sentence executed. The accused should be credited with 20 days of confinement against the sentence to confinement. An action to accomplish this is enclosed.

MEMORANDUM FOR Commander III Corps, Fort Hood, Texas 76544
SUBJECT: Request for Clemency in the Matter of United States v, SSG Ivan Frederick
1. Pursuant to R.C.M. 1105, SSG Ivan Frederick respectfully requests you reduce his sentence to 4 years confinement.
History of the Case and Statement of Facts
2.
Charges and specifications involving maltreatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison, Iraq, were brought against SSG Frederick in the spring of 2004. An Article 32 in-vestigating officer reconunended trial by general court-martial in May 2004. There were multiple defendants and the circumstance gained world wide notoriety.

3.
hi August 2004 SSG Frederick in a public staternent accepted responsibility for his conduct and urged others to do so. He was the first of the charged defendants to accept responsibility. His acceptance of responsibility was unequivocal and was widely reported,

4, Counsel for SSG Frederick sought to move the trial out of Iraq in order to assure the attendance of critical civilian witnesses. A motion was filed with the military judge to achieve that end. The convening authority in an interview with all defense counsel in August 2004 asserted unequivocally that all trials must be held in Iraq and that he would not support a change of venue (the transcript of that interview is incorporated by reference herein). The military judge denied SSG Frederick's motion to change the location of the trial on 24 August 2004.
5.
SSG Frederick pled guilty on 20 October 2004 to chaxges involving prisoner maltreatment and others. The military judge, pursuant to the pretrial agreement, sentenced SSG Frederick to eight years of confinement at hard labor and a dishonorable discharge. SSIF Frederick is currently serving that sentence at the Disciplinary Barracks, Fort Leavenworth.

6.
Lmmediately after the presidential elections in November 2004 the convening authority
without application by any defendant and without any explanation moved the remaining courts-
martial out of Iraq to Fort Hood, Texas,

FREDERICK HAS PROVIDED TO THE GOVERNMENT. THIS DOCLTMENT IS AN

CASE.

8. Beyond the above there is this:
a. Psychological testing done by an Army psychologist at Landstuhl, Germany, revealed that SSG Frederick had no psychological pathology. This was testified to at his guilty plea by the psychologist. This demonstrated that SSG Frederick was not, as some had characterized him, a sadist or morally banIcrupt. His entire history confirmed that diagnosis. He had over 18 years of service with no disciplinary actions. His civilian job as a prison guard showed only favorable ratings with no indication of untoward conduct. This too was testified to at the guilty plea.

APVR-WJA-TDS SUBJECT: Request for Clemency in the Matter of United States v. SSG Ivan Frederick
to train soldiers to this day. It was clearly demonstrated that leadership was absent at Abu Ghraib during this period of time.
c. SSG Frederick was a well liked, respected and contributing member of society as is demonstrated by the character testimony and written submissions at his guilty plea. This conduct for which he pleaded guilty was a total aberration from SSG Frederick's normative behavior. Fie accepted responsibility for the conduct and has followed a path of redemption since that acceptance.

Conclusion
9.
SSG Frederick faced a maximum sentence of 11 years of confinement at hardlabor b4sed upon the pretrial agreement that was entered in with the government. The military judge sentenced SSG Frederick 10 years. The pretrial agreement limited confinement to 8 years. At the time it was difficult to separate the political implications of the case from the legitimate ends of the ciiminal justice system. I believe the military judge was unable to compartmentalize the two competing interests. I believe the sentence was facially excessive. I further believe that the failure to move the Frederick trial out of Iraq and the convening authority's unwillingness to do so was legal error and dramatically prejudiced the right to a fair trial by denying SSG Frederick live witnesses. By moving the subsequent trials to Fort Hood a mere two months after declaring that they would not be moved and atter the presidential elections suggests the politicization of the process.

10.
SSG Frederick has atoned for his transgressions atleast in part by providing full
cooperation to the government in every particular and he will continue to do so.

. 11. It is appropriate, I believe, to reduce his confinement at hard labor to four years under the totality of the above described circumsta.nces,

14 start off asking questions, sir, and I'll turn it over to

15 Q: Mr. (44) -441(6)7 -C 5e
-

16 A: LTG Metz
17 Q• General, here, and I want to thank you for your 4 4
18 patience, and because we have little time, I'd like to cut to the

t4

19 chase. Could you define for me what operatiOnal imperatives are i

20 suggested to you which would require trials to remain in Iraq?

018079
1
1 A. The operational imperative for the trials to remain in Iraq
2 seem to me centered around the best location to assemble the accused,
3 the witnesses, the experts, esand therefore ; feel like it's the best
4 place to conduct this trial.
5 Q. Areyou awa*, sir, that virtually no witnesses remain in

6 Iraq?

7 A. Yes, I do realize that they've all--mainly at your location
8 in Germany right now.
9 Q. Do you realize that they're also in the United States?

10 A.

I understand thatoSpecialist England is in the United
11 States.
12 Q.

Referring to witnesses, General. That's correct on
13 England, but with respect to witnesses, are you aware that multiple
14 witnesses are also in the United States?
15 A. Yes, T did realile that there are witnesses in the United

16 States.
17 Q.

You are also aware, are you not, that non-military
18

witnesses have to sign a hold harmless document because of the
19 threatening nature of travel in entry and exiting Iraq?
20 A.

I am aware that such a document needs to be signed for
21 their travel to Iraq.

2

018030
DOD-041259
1 Q. And are you also aware that many of these witnesses are
2 Reservists who have given faithful time to their country and have
3 been returned to the United States and would have to be asked to
4 return to a combat zone for the mere purpose of being a witness given
5 your rationale?
6 A. I did realize that there were Reservists that must come
7 back on active duty and return to a combat zone, but feel like it's
8 the proper place to conduct this trial.
9 Q. Do you believe it is appropriate to require civilians to

10 risk their lives in order to be witnesses in this trial by your
11 decision to keep it in Iraq?
12 A. I do believe that it is appropriate given the number of
13 civilians who operate in this area of responsibility and the risk
14 that they undergo that this is no different to them and therefore it
15 seems to me appropriate.
16 Q. Let me examine that with you for a moment. The civilians
17 you're talking about, I believe, are either government employees and
18 are there for economic gain. How can you possibly compare them to
19 individuals who are seeking to testify and to do justice?

3 018081

1 A. Well, I wasn't looking towards any equation. My judgment
2 was made on the individual threat to that particular person, and I
3 wasn't judging it as an economic factor in there.
4 Q. Well, these civilians would like to come testify at trial
5 and are doing so in the interests of justice. Why would you impose
6 upon them fear of death in order to accomplish that?
7 A. Well, because I do not see the probability of death that
8 high, and therefore, overriding the feelings that I have that this is
9 the right place to conduct the trial.

10 Q. You recognize, as well, that there are active duty
11 personnel who have served their country in Iraq and have rotated out
12 of Iraq. Do you believe it is appropriate to return them to a combat
13 zone on multiple locations for the sole purpose of conducting this
14 trial?
15 A. Actually, I do.
16 Q. And why, sir?
17 A. It's their duty to perform the requirements that we need to
18 seek justice, and again, I do not see the risk as that great to them
19 as an individual and the environments to move through coming in and
20 out of Iraq.

4 018082

1 more to do with geopolitical thinking, vis-a-vis, the perception of
2 the Iraqi people, and/or the perception of the Arab world? Isn't
3 that correct, sir?
4 A. No, sir, arrived here on the 21st of January and did a
5 change of authority with the Fifth Corps on the 1st day of February
6 and become the Deputy Commander of CJTF-7, and during that process, I
7 have developed the belief that this is the right place to conduct
8 this trial and I have not been involved in the geopolitical aspects
9 of that part of your discussion. So that is not part of my decision-

10 making process.
11 Q. General Kimmitt a few days ago talked to us and was quite
12 adamant in his view that these trials had to be held in Iraq for
13 political reasons, namely to allow the Iraqi citizens to see a
14 transparent system of justice and to give the Arab world the sense
15 that our justice system meted out punishment when it was necessary.
16 Are you telling me that that is not a consideration that you have in
17 rendering a decision to keep this trial in Iraq?
18 A. Certainly, it is a consideration, and obviously, General
19 Kimmitt whose business is or was the strategic communications for the
20 command, but it is not a dominant reason in my mind. It does have

6 018084

1 the effect that General Kimmitt mentioned, but it is not the central 2 theme by which I make the decision. 3 Q . Well, if it is a consideration then, could you explain to 4 me why Kuwait would not be an appropriate place to have this trial, 5 given the fact that the danger to all parties concerned is greatly 6 reduced and the ability to produce witnesses is greatly enhanced? 7 A. I think the degree in which the parameters change may not
be as great as you indicate, given the proximity of Kuwait and the

9 terrorists' capability to move throughout this region and impact 10 those things that they would want to impact, so there would still be, 11 in my mind, a probability, albeit smaller than the probability here, 12 but in both cases, a very small probability, and I don't see the 13 additional advantage to go into Kuwait. 14 Q. Well, there's a small probability everywhere of a terrorist 15 attack, as we all well know. But could you please explain to me, 16 sir, and I don't mean to be sophomoric with you. I'm trying to 17 understand how it is possible that you or anyone else could conclude 18 that causing people to face potential death irrespective of what the 19 deminimus probability is in your mind, how that can possibly serve 20 the interests of American justice when it is so easy to move this 21 trial as you've done in the England case.
7 018085
1 A. I'm not sure that I have--I obviously have not articulated
2 well enough the reasons that I feel we should stay. But it's my
3 feeling as the commander that the location in which the crimes were
4 committed, the manner in which they were committed, we have certainly
5 the wherewithal to conduct them in a fully prudent and safe way. It
6 is my feeling this is the best place that I should recommend and I
7 should hold my position that the trials should be here.
8 Q. With whom have you had discussions about the location of
9 the trial?

10 A. I have discussed it with my Staff Judge Advocate, and that
11 was an early on opinion and decision, and this is when the--if I
12 recall correctly, the first major discussion I have had outside of
13 SJA about this issue.
14 Q. And you're telling us that the political considerations,
15 and you're not under oath, but you are a gentleman and an officer,
16 you're telling us that the political considerations played a very
17 small part in your decision to keep this trial in Iraq,
18 notwithstanding all of the imperatives to get it out of there.
19 A. The first time I made the decision, it played a very small
20 part, and that part may have--because of all the discussion and the
21 things that you obviously pick up in the normal discussion and the

8 018086
1 normal media, but really that increased influence has not been a
2 major factor in my mind to change my opinion, your categorization of
3 the political slice of this decision.
4 Q. What changes have you made in the treatment of prisoners
5 since you have arrived on the scene?
6 A. Well, when I arrived, again, the 21st of January, this is
7 what we call a left and right seat ride with my counterpart, General
8 Wodjakowski, whom I was to replace, and then I did so on the 1st of
9 February. As I understood it, to come in at that stage, many of the

10 changes were under way, especially the living conditions of the
11 detainees at Abu Ghraib, the processing by which they came in, the
12 medical checks, the inprocessing of data, the living conditions that
13 they were put i Many of those things were ongoing, and I don't
14 recall the exact date, but there was a day probably in the first
15 couple of weeks of February that I visited and then revisited Abu
16 Ghraib probably late February, early March on my second visit to see
17 those continued improvements. I'm not sure that I've answered your
18 question directly, but....
19 Q. Let me ask you a few specific questions and then I will
20 turn the mike over to somebody else. Did you, upon hearing of ghost
21 detainees, eliminate that process?

9

018087
1 A. I'm sorry, sir, I didn't understand the...ghost detainees,
2 is that the correct word?
3 Q. That's a phrase that's been employed uniquely to Abu Ghraib
4 and it applies to individuals who were brought there by CIA or other
5 government agencies, and these detainees were not ascribed an
6 identification number as is required by the Geneva Convention. It
7 was a practice at Abu Ghraib. Is it your testimony you're not aware
8 of that?
9 A. Sir, I'm not aware of that. The first I was made aware of

10 that was Lieutenant General Casey, who got here the first part of
11 July. It's been since his arrival that I was first aware of that
12 issue.
13 Q. And you've eliminated that practice?
14 A. To my knowledge, that practice was never employed by CJTF-7
15 or the Multinational Force or the Multinational Corps, and I know so
16 little about it and I have a hard time saying much more. I'm not
17 aware of that practice, and to my knowledge, it was not employed by
18 this headquarters, the Corps headquarters, General Casey's
19 Multinational Force headquarters. And in my experience over the 4
20 months as the Deputy CJTF-7 commander, I don't know anything about a
21 ghost detainee practice.

10 018088

1 Q. Were you aware and did you change the policy on nudity?
2 A. I was not aware of a policy, and I don't know that there
3 was a change because I just was not into the--upon arrival, one of
4 the things that was not on my scope was the policy that was already
5 in place at Abu Ghraib. And so, I'm not familiar with a nudity
6 policy either way.
7 Q. Is the running of Abu Ghraib under your command now?
8 A. No, the detainee operations was pulled out and separated
9 and is run by Deputy Commander, a Major General Geoff Miller handles

10 the detainee operations for the Multinational Force, Iraq.
11 Q. And when did that occur?
12 A. It occurred, I don't know the exact date, it was in the
13 springtime, and he deployed while we were still organized under CJTF-

14 7. General Sanchez made him a deputy for detainee ops, and we began
15 to task organize those assets, those formations under the CJTF that
16 related to detainee ops under General Miller close while I was still
17 the CJTF-7, a deputy commander for General Sanchez.

5 Q. Good afternoon, sir, my name is CaptainENIMMIM and I'm

6 the defense counsel for Sergeant Davis, who's sitting at my side
7 here, and thanks for your time today. I'll try not to take too long,
8 as we have limited time. So I'll cut right to the chase, sir. I'd
9 like to ask you first about any conversations you may have had with

10 General Sanchez about this case. I mean, have you had any? 11 A. No conversations with General Sanchez about this individual 12 case, your client or any of the others in this particular concern. 13 Q. So, I mean, you've never discussed it all, even the fact 14 that there was an investigation going on, anything of that nature at 15 all? 16 A. Well, there were in-progress reviews when I arrived, the 17 process of making changes at Abu Ghraib was already in place upon my 18 arrival. ;So, as it relates to me, a staff meeting, an in-progress 19 review, there would have been those kinds of conversations, but I do 20 not recall ever having a discussion with General Sanchez that was 21 solely devoted to my asking him a question or him giving me
12 018090
DOD-041269
1 information about Abu Ghraib. Whatever I needed to discuss with
2 General Sanchez was in the environment of in-progress review or a
3 staff meeting.
4 Q. If you could, sir, what do you mean by an in-progress
5 review then? Who would be giving that in-progress review, or who
6 would be present for it?
7 A. Well, for example, well, there would be the key staff
8 members, if I recall correctly, the Provost Marshal for the CJTF-7
9 was the principal staff officer under the C3 that reported detention

10 operations and status of different projects that were being improved
11 at Abu Ghraib and those kinds of things. So, it was a staff meeting
12 in the classical sense of a commander there with his principal staff
13 officers, Chief of Staff, and they were going over a particular
14 topic. In this case, the topic was detainee operations.

15 Q.
Sir, was Colonelellillpresent in any of these meetings? 16 A. At those meetings, it was before Colonel 1111111W (3/0 -2 17 deployment here, and so it was the previous Provost Marshal, and hisN(7)(c) -. 18 name escapes me for just a second"... think was the Colonel's 19 name that was the Provost Marshal when I first arrived, and they 20 redeployed in the early springtime when Colonel 11111111 arrived.
13 018091

1 But there were a set that were briefed there at--which probably were
2 a potential recommended set of conclusions and therefore findings and
3 recommendations to those findings.
4 Q. Do you remember if there were any recommendations to take
5 any kind of adverse action against any individuals anywhere in the
6 chain of command from top to bottom?
7 A. I do not recall that there was a specified task to do some
8 kind of adverse action during that particular outbrief.
9 Q. Did you ever hear General Sanchez express any opinion on

10 whether the people who were responsible for some of this misconduct
11 should have been held accountable in any way? Did you ever hear him
12 talk about it at all?
13 A. No, I did not. As I mentioned before, outside of these
14 kinds of meetings, staff meetings, I had very little discussion with
15 General Sanchez about this subject.
16 Q. And so you've never heard him express an opinion on what
17 should happen to the people responsible for the abuses at Abu Ghraib?
18 Is that what you're saying, sir?
19 A. That's correct. There was not a discussion between General
20 Sanchez and I or anyone in the chain of command about a particular
21 soldier or case and a particular justice or action at Abu take place.

15 018093
DOD-041272

1 A. At the start of that town hall meeting, it occurred in the
2 big foyer, I was in the nightly update. I remember that because on
3 one of the screens, I could see it on one of the news media, and I
4 thought how ironic it was that in the other room, the TV was going
5 all the way back to the States and back here. So, probably for
6 three-quarters to maybe more than that, I was in the tactical update
7 while that was going on. When I came out of it, I walked into that
8 town hall and stood for the rest of it in the back part of the crowd
9 as he finished up answering questions from the audience.

10 Q. So you're saying that you were present for roughly the last
11 quarter of that meeting. Is that about right, sir?
12 A. Yeah, it was mainly--he had finished, if I recall
13 correctly, he had finished--his presentation--to answer questions
14 from soldiers and the microphone would be passed among the soldiers
15 and they were asking him about different questions as I came out of
16 the Joint Operations Center having finished the commander's update
17 that evening.
18 Q. Sir, and after that meeting was over, at any point, whether
19 that day or any day afterward, did you ever get any kind of summary
20 of what went on at the meeting, of what was talked abOut? Did anyone
21 back brief you on how it went?

18 018096
1 A. I'm not sure which meeting we're talking about. The town
2 hall meeting?
3 Q. Yes, sir.
4 A. Or some other meeting?
5 Q. The town hall meeting, sir.
6 A. When the town hall meeting was over with, if I recall
7 correctly, it was close to his departure time, and I don't think I
8 saw him again after that and there wasn't any discussion about the
9 town hall meeting that I can recall.

10 Q. Did any of your staff talk about it later, maybe the PAO 11 representative or anyone else? 12 A. No, the only thing the staff talked about, the staff had to 13 work to get the PA system set up and make sure that the soldiers were 14 there and those kinds of things. I don't recall any substantive 15 discussion of what went on at the meeting, the town hall meeting 16 afterwards. It was just an event that came and went and we went back 17 to business. 18 Q. Okay, sir. Sir, since this whole thing started, have you 19 been required to give any kind of updates to any of your superiors on 20 what actions were being taken to address the Abu Ghraib scandal, if I 21 could call it that?
19 018097
1 A. No, and as the Deputy Commander of CJTF-7, I was doing a
2 set of tasks that were not related to the detainment or the
3 interrogation of the actions out at Abu Ghraib. And then, by the
4 time we split the headquarters and I became the Multinational Corps
5 commander, General Miller was on board as the Deputy Commander for
6 detainee ops, so I have, in my 7 months deployed here, been on the
7 margins, even at that, related to the detainee ops, and I guess
8 anything related to the Abu Ghraib functioning prior to my arrival.
9 Q. Sir, I guess I'll just ask you point blank. Have you ever

10 felt, whether explicitly or implicitly, that anyone superior to you
11 in the chain of command wants any particular result in these legal
12 cases? Have you ever felt any pressure to make sure any of these
13 people were court-martialed or punished or anything else?
14 A. No, I have not. I have limited conversations and have been
15 very alert to the fact that I needed, as the court-martial convening
16 authority to make these decisions and have not discussed with my
17 people in my current joint chain of command, being General Casey or
18 General Abizaid or the Secretary, anything about these. So I have
19 not discussed it with anyone higher.
20 Q. Now, sir, you may or may not be aware that some of the, I
21 guess, reports or investigations in this case may at least in theory

018098
20

1 or potentially implicate General Sanchez as having being derelict in
2 some fashion. Would you feel reluctant to take any action that may
3 reflect poorly on General Sanchez?
4 A. No, I'm the court-martial convening authority and the
5 investigations are concluded and information is available to my Staff
6 Judge Advocate. I'll make decisions based on that information. So,
7 we're working off of the facts of the case, and it would not be
8 reluctant if the facts of the case drove me to having to do a
9 negative or adverse action to someone like General Sanchez.

10 Q. Well, what I guess what I meant by it is, if you took, for
11 example, a favorable action to an accused based on mitigating
12 information that may indicate that someone above them, to include
13 General Sanchez, had been derelict or irresponsible in some way.
14 don't know if that makes sense.
15 A. Well, no, I think it does. I just feel like that I am in a
16 position that we must do the right things based on the evidence, and
17 I am not shy about doing the right thing regardless of General
18 Sanchez or any of the other senior officers or noncommissioned
19 officers or soldiers involved with this particular case.
20 Q. Okay, sir, now, sir, I'm at the tail end of the time that's
21 been allotted to me, but if I could, I'd like to ask you a quick

21

018099
(b)6-1V4)60r)-(1
1 question to clarify something Mr.11111111 asked you about. And I

2 apologize if this is beating a dead horse . But I guess what I'd like

(b) 0?)(5A1-1:
3 to ask, sir, is when you began talking to Mr.I111111 about the choice
4 of venue in this case, keeping it in Iraq, you said something about
5 Iraq being the best place to gather all the relevant witnesses and
6 accused. And I guess it wasn't clear to me why you felt that when
7 the large majority of potential witnesses are either in Germany or
8 CONUS. Do you think it's easier to bring everyone together in Iraq
9 than any other location?
10 A. I think, as we went through that discussion, I was thinking
11 more in terms of as this process began, and obviously today as we
12 move down the trail, people scattered in different places, but I
13 still have a thread of thought that, as a commander, this is the
14 right place to continue to bring the information back and work the

15 details of the justice, and that has just been a consistent theme
(t?)_______j_

6-17q10)0it) -`1

16 that I had in my mind. Obviously, Mr.4111111111 question and your
17 question, it is obvious that lots of people are concerned about it,
18 but I have marched through the time with the idea in my head that the
19 best thing for the justice is to conduct the trial here. So, I may
20 have been interpreted a little bit, but I just think it's the
21 continuity of thought of over time and it hasn't changed.

22 018100
1 Q. Okay, sir, and I'll ask one final question, and then I'll
2 turn it over to another counsel, and my question is this, would your

2

3 decision on venue be influenced if there were even ont civilian
4 witness with important relevant information who could not be
5 subpoenaed or forced to come to Iraq, if they were unwilling to come
6 voluntarily but they could be present at any other location, would
7 that influence your decision in how fair a trial any given accused
8 could get?
9 A. Well, in order to have a fair trial, that one witness, it

10 will obviously influence me. I guess it's one of those hypotheticals
11 that, I'm not going to say it's impossible, but I think I've got to
12 make those judgments as the counsel come to me and make a request.
13 So, you're looking for a "yes" or a "no" to a question that's got a
14 lot of variables to it.

1 Specialist Graner in this case. Sir, do you get a daily PAO press
2 update briefing?
3 A. I do not get a daily PAO briefing. On several different
4 venues though, they do keep me up to date. I get a read book early
5 in the morning. A little bit later, I sit through a Multinational
6 Force battle update in which there is some reporting of public
7 affairs. And then in my own staff meetings, I've got a little piece
8 that's, public affairs is a subcomponent of information operations.
9 So, in a battle rhythm there will be information on slides, but I

10 don't have a stand alone public affairs briefing daily.
11 Q. Sir, do you personally follow the news, both international
12 and national on the Internet?
13 A. I do not. I may read an article that's suggested to me a
14 couple times a week. I generally check articles, the titles of
15 articles in 'the Early Bird I may be interested in. During doing PT
16 at night, I will generally watch one of the news channels on AFN, but
17 don't spend a lot of time. I just don't have a lot of time to spend
18 reading a whdde 16t of articles. So, if the description of my day or
19 the meetings is what you need, I think I've given that, but I may not
20 be answering your question that you're asking.

1 Q. I got it, sir. Were you aware of President Bush's address
2 in the Rose Garden at the end of April related to Abu Ghraib?
3 A. I couldn't write an essay on it, and if you gave me a true,
4 false, I'd probably get it right because he probably did have--at the
5 Rose Garden, but I'm not familiar and certainly didn't watch a Rose
6 Garden presentation.
7 Q • Sir, are you aware or have you heard of any comments that
8 President Bush has made related to the Abu Ghraib case?
9 A. I know that he's made comments that it was unfortunate,

10 those kinds of words. But I don't recall if they were in a--what
11 context that was in. It may have been the 10 or 15 second clip on
12 whether the national news media teach me things that I may have seen.
13 But I do recall, probably on occasion, seeing the President and
14 mentioning how disappointed he was or some sentence like that.

15 Q • Sir, did you hear press coverage of Secretary Donald
16 Rumsfeld commenting on the Abu Ghraib case?
17 A. Often during the time I do PT at night, about 2100 local

18 will be early afternoon in the states, and often I'll watch a press
19 conference. I can't recall if I watched a press conference on that
20 particular subject. I do recall watching his testimony. It happened
21 to come on one of the nights I was doing PT, and I watched probably

1 Q. Sir, did you ever talk with Colonel IIIIIIIIIIIII about
2 Specialist Graner's case?
3 A. I did not talk with Colonel . He was General
4 Sanchez's Staff Judge Advocate. Th Corps has a different officer,
5 and so I didn't talk withal'.

11 Q. Sir, what did Colonel allintell you about Specialist
12 Graner's case?
13 A. Well, as we went through the facts of the case, he outlined
14 the facts as he had gathered them as a Staff Judge Advocate would
15 outline that information for a commander. But I can't quote to you
16 what he said at that particular meeting.

17 Q. Sir, did you personally review the referral packet for
18 Specialist Graner? (b)(0 -2 - -2_
19 A. Yes, I reviewed that packet that Colone11.11.11brought in

20 to me.

28 018106
1 Q. Sir, do you remember reviewing the report of tlie Article 32
2 hearing investigating officer?
3 A. I did not read that report top toOoottom, but we got a
4 thorough briefing on it from Colonel (46) -2 7 7.(e) -2.
5 Q. Sir, do you remember how many witnesses testified at the
6 Article 32 hearing?
7 A. I do not remember how many witnesses-there were at the 32.
8 Q. Sir, what was your basis for referring Specialist Graner's
9 case to a general court-martial?

10 A. As a commander, looking at the severity of the charges
11 which my SJA believed were definable And could be proven by the
12 government. That judgment as a commander led me to that decision.
13 Q. Sir, were you aware that the defense requested over 30
14 witnesses for the Article 32 hearing?
15 A. I was not aware of an exact number. I was aware that there
16 were witnesses requested, yes.
17 Q. Were you aware that no live witnesses testified at the
18 Article 32 hearing?
19 A. I'm sorry, I didn't hear the first part of your question.
20 Q. Were you aware, sir, that no witnesses, live witnesses
21 offered testimony at the Article 32 hearing for Specialist Graner?

29 018107
1 A. I was not aware that there were no witnesses at the Article

2 32.
3 Q. Sir, were you aware that defense request to interview the
4 detainees, the alleged victims in this case *as denied at the time of
5 the Article 32 hearing?
6 A. I do recall the fact was brought to my attention.
7 Q. Are you aware that no victims testified at the Article 32
8 hearing?
9 A. Maybe I'm getting detainees and victims mixed up. Those

10 are two different questions?
11 Q. No, sir, that's what I meant was, are you aware that no
12 detainees testified at the Article 32 hearing for Specialist Graner?
13 A. Yes, I was made aware of that fact.
14 Q. And you still chose to go forward to a general court-
15 martial.
16 A. Yes, I made that decision.
17 Q. Would your decision been different had you been aware that
18 the defense witnesses, knowing that no live witnesses had been
19 produced for the Article 32 hearing?
20 A. I don't think so, given the depth of information that my
21 SJA and I discussed that day.

1 best location. But I don't recall that it was General Kimmitt; it
2 could have been, but space was one of those factors.
3 Q. And do you recall General Kimmitt or someone else
4 advocating CPA Convention Center for extra space to accommodate the
5 news media?
6 A. Again, the news media was one of those criteria that we
7 were dealing with in making a decision, and because of this job, I
8 can make a pretty good assumption that he brought that up. So yes,
9 that was a piece of discussion of several discussions that we were

10 trying to figure out what's the best decision of where to hold the
11 trials.
12 Q. Sir, did you agree with that position that it was better to
13 have the trial at the Convention Center so as to facilitate more

14 press coverage or press coverage of the trial?
15 A. Although we didn't do a decision making matrix, it was one
16 of the parameters, but it was in my mind a very small and far from

17 overriding part that that was General Kimmitt's--it was one of his
18 concerns because that's the kind of business he was in, and he did
19 advocate the Convention Center from his point of view, and that was
20 one of the advantages that we could have--we were more skilled and

32

018110
1 better positioned to manage media from that location than other
2 courses of action that we were given.
3 Q. I'm sorry, sir, one final question. General Kimmitt
4 commented that the advantage of having the media cover these trials
5 was that the world, and in particular, the Iraqi people and those in
6 the Middle East would be able to see these trials, that that was
7 important for a degree of transparency, and the transparency in the
8 court-martial process would assist the American military position in
9 Iraq. Sir, number one, are you aware of that position being

10 advocated, and number two, do you agree with it?

11 A..
I'm a witness that that was his position. I don't totally
12 agree because I think in the information age now that that
13 information is--if you're going to move around considerably. But I
14 do recall General Kimmitt's position, and he articulated that at the
15 couple of meetings we had about making a deciSion on the location.

19 Q. Good afternoon, sir, I'm Captain 1111111111.11.111.. I
20 represent Specialist Megan Ambuhl. Sir, what conversations have you
21 had with Colone1111111111111thout the charges in these cases?

(64)-/,h)(6)-i
33 018111

w;)-/, 6v,0-/

1 A. Colonel 1111111111is one of my MP brigade commanders. I see 2 him probably once a week, and most of them operational reasons. I 3 can't recall having a conversation withAlliblIP about this case at
4 all. 404 00e)--/ 5 Q. And sir, what was General Sanchez's reaction when these 6 cases broke publicly in the media?
A. I think General Sanchez always was aware that they would
8 break and when they broke, it was going to be unfortunate. So he was
9 his usual self, a pretty introverted--he had very little reaction. I

10 think I'm answering your question, but I'm not sure. 11 Q. I guess I'm just wondering what, you know, what he had said 12 to you, if it was anything like, "Oh, this is a shame that this 13 happened," or what he actually said to you, because you indicated 14 that there was some, at least, informal discussion about the cases 15 and about the allegations. And I'm wondering more specifically what 16 that was, sirt 17 Q. Again, I c4nit recall a particular sentence or paragraph 18 that we discussed at or around the time that the release was made. I 19 just recall that we were, as we went through--upon my arrival, there 20 were those inprogress reviews about improving the detainee 21 operations. He had notified Central Command and when the news media
34 018112
1 did break, it was one of thoae...you knew that it was, and it really
2 wasn't a big surprise, and there wasn't a whole lot of conversation
3 among us in the different forums that we interacte0 on.
4 Q. Sir, would you agree that the allegations that have come
5 forward are possibly one of the biggest military scandals in the past
6 10 years?
7 A. Well, yes, certainly, as my mind scrolls, it probably would
8 be in the top 10 in the past 10 years.
9 Q. And so with that knowledge, what discussions were had about

10 how these people were going to be held accountable for their actions? 11 A. Well, commanders in these situations understand that we owe 12 the soldiers and the Code of Justice of doing the right things, and 13 so there was little discussion, and hardly no discussion about what 14 ought to happen to an individual in these--there was discussions 15 about the impact that it have on the entire situation that we were 16 under. But we were very conservatively cautious about any other 17 discussions. 18 Q. Sir, why have there been no officers charged under the UCMJ 19 for their misconduct in this scandal? 20 A. Because in my opinion, that their particular actions were 21 not of the degree to which they should be charged. And as I look at
018113
35

1 the facts as they're presented to me, other mechanisms were used to 2 correct their involvement, albeit in most cases, very small, in the 3 particular incidents that occurred. 4 Q. Now, sir, you understand that under the UCMJ, both officers 5 and enlisted can be charged with something like dereliction of duty? 6 A. Yes, I do understand that. 7 Q. Why weren't any of your officers charged with dereliction 8 of duty, sir, either by court-martial charges or by Article 15, sir? 9 A. In most of the cases, we did not feel that their
10 dereliction, or that there was dereliction of duty in the sense that
11 it would be--that we could prove it in a court and it is my belief
12 that if you want to impose the Article 15 of the Uniform Code of
13 Military Justice that you need to be prepared to go to court in the
14 event that the soldier refuses that Article, which is his or her
15 right. And we did not feel that the court-martial was the
16 appropriate mechanism.
17 Q. Sir, you keep referring to "we," who is "we," sir?
18 A. Generally, my--when I say "we," it's my Staff Judge
19 Advocate and I because he is the staff officer that helps me as I
20 work my way through the thought processes and I use my experience and
21 judgment, but he is my technical staff support in these matters. So

36 018114

1 Q. Yes, sir, all of those things. Did you review them before
2 sending Specialist Ambuhl's case to a general court-martial?
3 A. Yes, I sit with my Staff Judge Advocate with a rather large
4 binder of documents, and we go through the different paragraphs as
5 they're highlighted and summarize and draw together all the facts of
6 a particular case. But I don't have each.of thoe cases and each one
7 of those pages committed to memory.

Q. ,
8 And with regard to that Article 32 report, sir, do you feel

9 that you would have relied heavily on the Article 32 officer's 10 findings and recommendations? 11 A. The Article 32 was certainly one of those key documents as 12 we work our way through the decision process. But it is one of the 13 inputs that we get as the commander. 14 Q. Well, sir, in Specialist Ambuhl's Article 32, the Article 15 32 investigator recommended dismissing two of the charges against 16 Specialist Ambuhl because there was not enough evidence. What 17 considerations did you make in overriding the recommendation of the 18 32 officer, sir? 19 A. I regret I cannot recall those particular two. I do recall 20 having the discussion, but I cannot recall those facts. And so, I
38 018116

1 Q. Sir, your command then, as convening authority, you'd be
2 willing to readdress the issue of location on a case-by-case basis,
3 sir?
4 A. Yes, because when it is brought in, I've got to go through
5 that information and make the decision.
6 Q. Sir, switching gears again, with regard to the offense of
7 dereliction of duty, the government, obviously, must prove that some
8 of these soldiers had certain duties. Do you understand, I guess,
9 starting with that principal, sir?

10 A. Yes, I think you....
11 Q. Sorry, sir, following on from that, for example, if one of
12 the duties was to stop photographs from being taken, do you think
13 it's fair that a soldier would be charged with dereliction by failing
14 to stop the photographs, but then also by maltreatment by failing to
15 stop the photographs? Do you think that's fair to charge a soldier
16 twice for basically the same offense, sir?
17 A. Well, again, you're posing a question to me with two facts,
18 but there may be others involved. We certainly--I mean, I hate to
19 give a black or white to a very fuzzy question. I mean, I may not be
20 understanding your question right.

018113

40

1 Q. I guess just based on the facts that I gave you, sir, do
2 you think that that's fair?
3 A. Well, I guess you've got to give them to me again so I
4 understand them better.
5 Q. If a soldier witnesses some kind of abuse and that soldier
6 takes photographs or watches somebody take photographs and they're
7 charged as dereliction of duty because they had a duty to stop that,
8 but then they are also charged with maltreatment because they had a
9 duty to stop that. Just kind of systemically, based on those facts,

10 does that seem fair to charge that soldier twice for the same
11 conduct? And I understand, sir, there's certainly, in every case,
12 different facts. But just with that limited scenario.
13 A. I understand now. And yes, with that particular list of
14 scenarios you just gave, it would seem that you were doubling up in a
15 catch22. I understand what you're saying.
16 Q. And you understand, I guess, that is, in fact, a catch22
17 for the soldier?
18 A. Well, again, with just those two parameters given to me, it
19 could be. But I would have to understand a whole lot more about the
20 full picture. But I understand your question and yes, there could .
21 be...catch22 is the best expression I've got about that overlap.

41 018119

1 Q. Yes, sir, thank you. Sir, you'd indicated that you took
2 kind of careful steps to avoid discussing this case or what should
3 happen in this case with others above you and below you. Is that

accurate, sir?
5 A. Yes, it is.
6 Q. What direction did General Sanchez give to you about what
7 you should or should not say about the case?
8 A. General Sanchez did not give me any guidance. Again, I
9 came into theater late in January. We had the change of authority on

10 the 1st of February, so I took the duties of a Deputy CJTF Commander
11 1 February. Based on my experience, I had a very good idea that we
12 were going to be going through the future at some very difficult
13 times and I needed to ensure that I can sit here today and know that
14 I had not discussed with my higher headquarters or my higher
15 commanders and keep myself isolated so that I could make decisions
16 based on my experience and the input of my staff and not others. So,
17 I have gone out of my way to try to stay isolated.
18 Q. Sir, my last question, I'm assuming that you've seen some
19 of the photographs in this case, either in the case file or in the

20 media. And if I can ask you to direct your attention, just in your
21 memory, to a photograph of naked detainees who are in a pyramid and

42 018120
1 there were two soldiers standing behind that pyramid. Generally, do
2 you recall that photo, sir?
3 A. Yes, I do.
4 Q. And now that I've drawn your attention to that, more
5 specifically, you do recall that the female soldier in the back was,
6 in fact, Specialist Ambuhl, right, sir?
7 Captain1111111,111 General Metz, I mean, no, you don't have to

18 Q. Good afternoon, General. This is Captain

19 and I'm representing Specialist Sabrina Harman, sir. Thank you for
20 spending time with us. Sir, I'd just like to follow up on some of
21 the questions the other attorneys asked you.

43 018121
1 You said that when you took over command, that changes were 2 already in progress for the inmates at Abu Ghraib, sir. Were changes 3 being in place for the soldiers' conditions, sir? 4 A. Yes, we had recognized, I think my predecessors had 5 recognized the life support systems were below standard and needed to 6 be improved. And if I recall, the improvements in the dining 7 facility, the PX, those kind of things were made, but that is in 8 recognizing it was in progress either as a itaff action or physically 9 actually building and making changes.
10 [Video feed was lost, and restored.] 11 Q. Sir; you agreed that this case was probably one of the top 12 10 scandals in the military in the last 10 years, sir. Despite that, 13 you're saying that you have not had any discussions with your higher 14 chain of command regarding this case, sir, at length or even a 15 little? 16 A. Certainly there4are environments in which the topic is 17 brought up. But I knew from early on in the process that I would 18 need to work very hard to be able to be the court-mattial convening 19 authority and use my judgment. And so, we did not engage in pointed 20 long discussions on the subject. So, you can't be a Deputy Commander 21 of an outfit and not be in a staff meeting when the subject comes up.
44 018122
1 But I did not have counseling about or discuss with anybody in my
2 higher chain of command these cases.

Q. Sir, how often would you say the subject was brought up and

4 with whom?
5 A. Probably we would have a...the subject would come as
6 a...when I subject the subject, detainee ops or something about it
7 would come up at a staff meeting once a week. There may be a piece
8 of data that the commander was given. It's very hard to put a
9 quantifiable number of minutes per work and with whom. But there

10 were clearly staff actions focused on improving Abu Ghraib, improving
11 detainee ops, improving the way we were doing business. And there
12 was the event of soldiers and doing things that could have been in
13 violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and that's where
14 we did not discuss those particular individual acts about individual
15 soldiers.
16 Q. Sir, would you say that----
17 A. And if you'll help me with the question, I'll try my best
18 to give you...no, go ahead.
19 Q. I'm sorry, sir. Sir, would you say that when soldiers
20 commit light crimes that they should be punished in a light manner?

018123

45

1 it be fair, in your mind, to charge Specialist Harman with a general

2 court-martial?

3 A. We're charging Specialist Harman based on the facts as I

4 got them, and I do not think--which I didn't have, of a different
5 case, a different situation, a decision by a different commander

6 without a whole lot of influence on the way I would go through the
decision making process and the facts that were brought to me.
8 Q. Sir, when your SJA came in before your referral for
9 Specialist Harman and you reviewed all the documents, the Article 32

10 and all the other documents in that case, sir, how much time would

11 you say you spent with your SJA regarding Specialist Harman's

12 referral?

13 A. Well, I would say it was probably anywhere from 20 to 30
14 minutes on that particular case as we went through it.
15 Q. And sir, do you recall that the IO's recommendation there
16 was to dismiss two of the charges for Specialist Harman?
17 A. I may have--that question was asked earlier, and I may have
18 confused--I do recall disagreeing with the IO, and I cannot

19 distinguish between the two in my mind right now. But I do know that
20 there have been charges that I have included that the ED did not

01 8125

47
DOD-041304
1 recommend, but I just don't have that granularity in my mind right
2 now.
3 Q. Sir, do you recall that in Specialist Harman's Article 32,
4 the 10 recommended that this not go to general court-martial, that it
5 goes to a lower court-martial or a lower form of punishment? Do you
6 recall that, sir?
7 A. I do not recall that.
8 Q. Do you recall whether you took that into consideration
9 before you referred this to a general court-martial, sir?

10 A. I can't sit here--I may have had the data at the time.
11 Right now, I can't recall that particular piece of detail.
12 Q. And sir, at this time, you don't recall particularly what
13 documents you reviewed with your SJA in order to have you decide to
14 refer Specialist Harman to a general court-martial, sir?
15 A. As we go through the binder, I apologize to you, but I just
16 don't memorize--I tape record the information as it's presented to me
17 and I look through it. When you say a particular document, there are
18 any number of documents in the binder.
19 Q. Sir, would further review of these documents, perhaps, in
20 any way influence you to change your mind about referral to a general
21 court-martial for Specialist Harman?

48 018126

1 A. I think I went through a decision making process at the 2 time that I was comfortable with and am still comfortable with. 3 Q. Sir, in view of the other reports that are coming out, the 4 Fay report, the Schlessinger report, the Church report, does that, in 5 any way, influence your decision? For example, we got a report out a 6 couple of days ago saying that, in fact, officers certainly should 7 have been...that the leadership was to blame, that the leadership was 8 to blame, sir. Does that in any way impact your decision about 9 referring Specialist Harman to a general court-martial?
10 A. No, all those were after my decision making process, and
11 they do not impact that previous decision.
12 Q. Sir, so you're saying that despite the new reports and
13 investigations that are being put out, that's not going to change
14 your mind in any way?
15 A. Right now, that's what I'm saying.
16 Q. So if, in fact, these new reports and investigations came
17 out with new details, that would not influence you in any way, sir?
18 A. Well, if I'm given a motion to go take that information and
19 bring it back to my decision making process, I would certainly honor
20 that request to do so and go through the process. I don't know what
21 the results of that decision process would be, because I'm not

49 018127
1 available to the facts right now, and I have not taken the time to
2 read all these additional investigations.
3 Q. Sir, so you would, sir, welcome perhaps a motion to you to
4 have you consider the new investigation reports that are coming out
5 now, sir? Would you be open to that, sir?
6 A. I would be open to...if new information impacts the justice
7 of a soldier, I am open for that information.
8 7' CPT MOM Thank you, sir.

CaptainINIMP: Sir, we have one last attorney. This is
)ta

10 aptai . He represents PFC Lynndie England who is
11 currently over at Fort Bragg. He only has a very few questions as it
12 pertains to you since you're not the convening authority in that
13 case, but he does have a few questions that go to some of the facts.

14 4: CPT1110111
15 A:.

LTG Metz

16 Q. Sir, can you tell me a little bit about why or what
17 conversations you had with the those in the 16th MP Brigade chain of
18 command with respect to Private England, particularly about the
19 decision to send her back to Fort Bragg?
20 A. One of the main considerations there was her pregnancy, and
21 we felt that that was the right thing to do and was the

50 018128
DOD-041307

1 outcome for a charge. But I'm not so sure that's the question you're
2 asking.
3 Q. I'll move on, sir, not exactly, but it was in a slightly
4 different context. But you listed factors earlier in your decision
5 to keep the trials in Iraq, particularly witnesses, experts, and so
6 on, the accused. Leaving aside the witnesses issue, what experts you
7 believed were going to be relevant to those trials would be in Iraq
8 at that time or would be utilized in the trial?
9 A. Well, we certainly have those officers and soldiers that

10 are in that environment and have watched that environment since we've
11 been here. So I'm not so sure I got the question yet.
12 Q. Sir, you said there were a number of factors that you said
13 went into your decision to keep the trials in Iraq, and you said one
14 of those factors was witnesses, one of those factors was experts and
15 one of those factors was the accused. Now, leaving aside the one
16 factor dealing with witnesses, what did you mean by experts at the
17 trial with respect to a factor in your decision to keep these trials
18 in Iraq?
19 A. I think when I used that term I was thinking of those
20 leaders, people involved in the process, either the detention or

52 018130

1 integration or chain of command and those kind of people that have
2 the knowledge of these events and the environment around them.
3 Q. So it would be fair to say we're just talking about a
4 particular type of witness per se, not necessarily an expert in a
5 legal sense?
6 A. Yes, because I think that legal experts may not be
7 particular here, but they have a technical legal expertise at a
8 distant location
9 Q. And going back to the 16th MP Brigade chain of command, did

10 you speak with Colone1111111111 at all about Private England, sir?

W09)-1./03)0)e)-/ .

11 A. I do not recall ever talking to 11111111,about England
12 since all this began since he deployed here. I don't recall any
13 discussion with him.
14 Q. Sir, who in particular do you remember speaking with about
15 PFC England?
16 A. The Staff Judge Advocate for sure, and outside of that
17 discussion, I can't recall singling out England as a discussion point
18 with anyone else. I may have, and I'm trying to think, I just can't
19 remember if the recommendation to send her back was done in writing
20 or if it came to me verbally from I could have talked with
-(5) 7(C)/

21 him about it, but I don't think so. I think all that was a written

53 018131
1 request if I recall correctly. So I don't think I talked about

2 England with anybody.

3 CPTIIIIII: Okay, sir, thank you very much.

6 7 LTG Metz: Thank you. Q: CPT gligg C6') -240C -2
8 A:.LTG Metz
9 Q. Hi, sir. I just wanted to ask you if you would be willing

10 to respond in writing lo any qttestions, any follow up questions that
11 any of the Abu defense attorneys would subAlit to pu. I mean, we all
12 just got 20 minutes of peace, and you've given us a lot to think
13 about, and we would just like to know today if you would be willing
14 to field questions from us later on in writing.
15 A. I certainly would. I'll have to admit that the tactical
16 situation works over my shoulder here. It caught a little bit of my
17 attention today and I owe you the answers to the questions that you
18 would like for me to answer as the court-martial convening authority.
19 So sure, if you've got particular questions, please send them and I'd
20 like to respond to them.

I acknowledge receipt of a copy of the Post Trial Recommendation and a copy of the Record of Trial in the case of U.S. v. FREDERICK. I understand that I have an opportunity to rebut, correct, or challenge any matter I deem erroneous, inadequate or misleading, or to comment on any other matter, and that my comments will be appended to the Post Trial Recommendation.

Upon my request, the Convening Authority may extend this period, for good cause, for not more than an additional 20 days. If I am unable to complete this within 10 days, I will provide, within that time, a request for delay in submitting the Record of Trial to the Convening Authority for action. I also acknowledge that failure to provide any reply or request for delay within 10 days will normally be deemed a waiver of any error in the review.

MEMORANDUM FOR Commander, III Corps, Victory Base, Iraq, APO AE 09342-1400
SUBJECT: Advice on Disposition of the Court-Martial Charges Preferred Against
Staff Sergeant Ivan L. Frederick, II —ACTION MEMORANDUM

Cpig?)-2-).- 2-
1. Purpose. To forward for disposition, in accordance with Rule for Court-Martial (RCM)
407, the court-martial charges against Staff Sergeant Ivan L. Frederick, II, Headquarters
and Headquarters Company, 16th MP Brigade (Airborne), Ill Corps, Victory Base, Iraq.

2. Recommendations.
a.
Chain of Command. As reflected on the attached court-martial charges transmittal
memoranda, the soldier's company and brigade commanders recommend referral of the
charges to a general court-martial.

b.
Article 32 Investigation: As reflected in the Investigating Officer's Report, the Article 32 Investigating Officer recommends referral of the charges to a general court-martial. The Investigating Officer recommended that the Specification of Charge VI be amended to read that the accused committed an indecent act by "influencing/instigating a group of detainees to begin masturbating, or attempting to masturbate, and setting the detainees in sexually provocative positions." The Specification currently reads that the accused watched detainees masturbating or attempting to masturbate.

c.
Staff Judge Advocate. I recommend you refer the attached charges and their specifications to a general court-martial, pursuant to RCM 601, and refer the case to trial by Court-Martial Convening Order Number 1, dated 14 January 2004, as amended by Court-Martial Convening Order Number 3, dated 8 March 2004.

3. Staff Judge Advocate Review. In accordance with RCM 406 and Article 34, Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), I have reviewed the attached charges and supporting documentation. It is my legal conclusion that:
a. The specifications allege offenses under the UCMJ;
b. The allegations of the offenses are warranted by the evidence indicated in the attached documentation; and
c. The court-martial will have jurisdiction over the accused and the offenses alleged.
