"Notwithstanding the fact that the detainees at Guantanamo are unlawful enemy combatants, the armed forces of the U.S. are treating and will continue to treat the detainees humanely and, to the extent appropriate and consistent with the principles of the Geneva Convention... the detainees will not be subject to physical or mental abuse or cruel treatment."

This email is a response to a Bureau wide memo sent by Steve McCraw to illicit information from FBI agents who toured through Guantanamo Bay to report any suspected or witnessed abuse of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. These FBI agents who toured through Guantanamo: 1) dated July 9, 2004; 2) dated August 2, 2004. Both emails describe interrogations of detainees at Guantanamo. The July 9, 2004 emails stated that the author had witnessed 14 interrogations and one (1) involved tactics that were "while not overtly aggressive, were clearly not consistent with Bureau [FBI] interview policy/guidelines" and stated "To my knowledge, there were no FBI personnel involved in that interview". The email of August 2, 2004 states that "the lights had been turned off and a strobe light was flickering on and off, and loud rock music was being played. I estimate that this went on for 30 to 60 minutes. I was told by quite a few FBI personnel that tactics such as this were quite common there at the time This was the only such event that observed directly".

The original message states “Detainee abuse in Iraq and Afghanistan echoes the incidents reported in Kosovo, with the clear exception of the more dangerous and stressful conditions of combat versus peace enforcement operations.” The Officer receiving the email responds that “this is the first that I have heard of the KFOR incidents referenced below. If others here were aware, afraid that institutional knowledge was lost as our SFOR/KFOR AOs have PCS'd or retired over the last 4-5 years. Second, such training would not have had bearing on the incidents under investigation with OIF.

The NCIS Division Chief of the Personal Crimes Department reports that they have received three (3) referrals from the Criminal Investigation Task Force (CITF) regarding alleged detainee abuse at Guantanamo. NCIS held off initiating action pending DOD/Navy IG’s input on “abuse criteria” and the determinations regarding individual Military Criminal Investigation Organizations' areas of responsibility. The email reports that “it’s come down to Gitmo and IMEF in Iraq belonging to NCIS and everything else to Army CID.” With respect to criteria for accepting cases, “the key will be to determine the 'aggravated' factor vs. simple assault.” The Division Chief anticipates working on three cited cases and mentions the need for "manpower" at Guantanamo. The reply states that “the manpower in Gitmo is already critical and they are swamped” and requests additional information.

String of emails in response to NCIS inquiry into an incident mentioned in a USMC report regarding all Iraqi detainee abuse and death cases. The NCIS official had not heard of one incident concerning detainee who is suspected of dying of head injuries after jumping out of window in Husaybah, Iraq, on April 19, 2004. One reply states that Command is aware of issue as is the Operations Branch of the Staff Judge Advocate (SJA). Another USMC email notes that the author spoke with an IMEF Fallujah official about this case, who said he did not notify NCIS of the death. The same person also advised that NCIS was not notified about abuse alleged to have occurred on June 1, 2003. On that day, marines from the Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, were alleged to have made four Iraqi juveniles kneel beside two shallow fighting holes while pistol discharged in mock execution. The email's author requested that IMEF reporting format to be amended to reflect accurately when NCIS is notified of allegations of abuse. Replies say that IMEF SJA was ordered to correct their original report. The NCIS response states that “only because IMEF erroneously listed NCIS on two cases that we were never notified on or conducted an investigation.”

I traveled to Abu Ghraib many times. I did observe that the entire facility was very understaffed.
