Criminal Investigative Task Force Interview of Abu Ghraib Prisoner re: Communication Between Prisoners at Abu Ghraib Prison

A detainee was being questioned about his attempt to pass a note to another detainee at Abu Ghraib prison. He stated that he was in fact attempting to pass a note to another prisoner who was acting as an interpreter. He wanted the note to go to another prisoner who was being released and the note to be taken back to his family. The prisoner states that he only confessed to attacks upon coalition forces because he was tortured, but is really innocent and there is no evidence to prove he is guilty.
