Criminal Investigation Command (CID) report into allegations of assault, cruelty and maltreatment of a detainee by guards at Abu Ghraib. Among the detainee's allegations, he stated that a US Army Sergeant hung him by his arms from the bars of a metal door with his feet off of the floor for two hours. The detainee also recounted abuse he suffered at the hands of the Iraqi police prior to being transferred to Abu Ghraib.

However, an assessment of the investigation stated there was no evidence to justify the finding that the allegations were unfounded, it was recommended that the investigation be re-opened.

An investigation into a detainee's allegation that he was "tortured" at a U.S. facility in Mosul in March 2004. Detainee indicated that after being arrested but before arriving at the facility, his captors -- American men in civilian clothes -- bent his thumb backwards, kicked him, and hit him with the butt of a weapon in the back of the neck. At the facility, which was very cold, he was stripped; allowed only two limited periods of sleep in seven days, and prevented from sleeping by being subjected to loud recordings and being doused with cold water; given only eight biscuits to eat in seven days; assaulted by a translator; and pressed on his joints by U.S. personnel in a manner causing severe pain and temporary paralysis. After his head was hit against a wall, causing him to bleed from his nose and mouth, and causing permanent loss of balance, he was taken to a hospital. However, he was later retreived by the same team of captors and "I had the same ways of previous torturing, as well as pouring hot liquid on my back, and sitting me close to fire, which resulted in burning a part of my right leg, and they put a very hot lamp on my thigh for a very short time. At the end they threatened me that they would bring my wife and my mother and that they would rape them if I did not confess. When I asked them to bring a paper and write whatever they want, I would sign it without any objection." Detainee displayed healed burn scars on knees and "unusual scars" on feet, and an interviewer noticed that he "walked with a wobble". Investigation revealed that the detainee had been arrested and initially detained by Navy SEALs from Naval Special Warfare Squadron 7. Notations in the investigative file indicate that a medical screening record generated on the day of capture showed several abrasions and bruising consistent with a "rough capture" and that a medical record generated thirteen days later showed second degree burns and singed tissue "after being interrogated the evening prior." Moreover, the Army NCO who initially processed the detainee on his arrival at the Mosul facility noted that the detainee "was scared, crying, and upset," and that when he made a hand gesture that the detainee interpreted as indicating that he would be sent back to the SEAL team, the detainee said "I am not going back with them, you might as well kill me now." The NCO said that he suspected that the SEALs may have abused the detainee. The SEALs denied abusing the detainee, stating that he threw himself on rocks and rubbed himself against walls, and faked illness. A 15-6 investigation concluded that there was no wrong doing by any of the persons involved in the apprehension and subsequent detention and (inconsistent with other reports in the file) indicated that the alleged burns were not consistent with thermal burns. CID similarly concluded that the "[i]nvestigation did not develop sufficient evidence to prove or disprove the allegations made by Mr. [REDACTED]."

His son, who was also detained at Abu Ghraib at this time, reported that two days prior, his father had fallen and complained of chest pain, but had not reported it to Army medics.

An Army doctor arrived approximately ten minutes later and performed CPR. An IV was inserted. Altia was unresponsive. He was taken to the emergency room, where he was declared dead at 11:07 AM.

NCIS report on the results of investigative efforts regarding allegations of abuse made by two detainees, Ali and Hassan, in Iraq. In one case, a detainee captured on February 8, 2004, alleged he was assaulted while being held at "al Baghdadi" detention facility. It appears he was referring to Camp Baghdadi, which has since closed. Due to lack of records, the investigation was unable to obtain names of members of the capturing unit. The detainee was released from Abu Ghraib on June 28, 2004. In the other case, a detainee alleged abuse at Abu Ghraib after his capture on March 4, 2004. Medical records showed lacerations and abrasions supposedly caused by handcuffs and barbwire during capture. Capturing unit members had returned to their assigned posts, so no interviews were conducted. The investigation was closed.

Detainee reported that he was arrested after US forces found a weapon in his home. He was detained at Al Sijood Palace, Iraq, and it was during this detention he states he was hooded; flexicuffed; punched; kicked; yelled at; and threatened. Investigation established that there was insufficient evidence to prove or disprove the charges based on the absence of medical records. The report did however interview numerous soldiers from different units who were in contact with the detainee during his incarceration. None of the soldiers corroborated the detainee’s version of events or any aspect of his alleged abuse, despite the variety of soldiers and units that were at the facility at the time. The report found that the allegations were therefore unfounded with no further action to be taken.

Report of investigation of detainee’s allegation that a male U.S. soldier had slapped him across the face, causing him to bleed from the nose or the mouth and pushing him into concertina wire at the base of a chain link fence, causing the detainee to cut his left ring finger. The assault occurred after a female U.S. soldier at Abu Ghraib Compound Cougar 3 shouted at the detainee to wake up, using profanities. It appears that the female soldier was counting detainees, following an earlier escape attempt by three other detainees. The victim responded to the female soldier’s command to “shut up” by telling her to shut up, after which the male U.S. soldier entered the fenced-in compound and struck the detainee across the face. Several other detainees and another soldier corroborated the victim’s account. The male soldier denied slapping the victim, but acknowledged pushing the victim down. Investigation concludes there is probable cause to believe the male soldier had committed the offense of assault consummated by a battery. The commander stated his intention to take action amounting to less than courts martial.

Investigation into report by the senior Counterintelligence Technician, 1st Brigade Combat Team, enclosing sworn statements of two detainees concerning abuse by members of the 2nd Squadron, 5th Cavalry. The detainees' sworn statements are not included in the released portion of the file; nor is any other information detailing the allegations. Based on the questions asked to the members of the 2nd Squadron in the investigation, the detainees alleged that they were struck, thrown on the ground, and had a pistol pointed at them during their detention. Major [REDACTED] from the 2-5th had previously conducted a 15-6 Investigation (also not released) and concluded that no evidence existed to support the allegations; however, the Counterintelligence Technician who reported the abuse to CID also reported that his soldiers believed the Major was "just going through the motion[s]" and "seemed disinterested in what [the soldiers] had to provide."

The detainee was interviewed and denied being assaulted by any soldier.

The detainee described being slapped in the right cheek and shocked with a “taser”: “he hit me with the electric gun twice in my arm with two wire needles, and they took me to the doctor who picked up the two wire needles from my arm.” When asked why he didn’t tell CID that story when interviewed previously, he said that he had told CID this story. Agent confirmed that marks on victim’s arm were consistent with a taser shot 4 weeks earlier. Agent’s investigative report refers to two entries from the activities sheet of Camp Bucca dated March 8, 2004 and March 27, 2004 which detailed “use of force against detainees in which detainees were shot.” Investigation concludes victim’s testimony not credible (in part because of his “depression” and prescriptions for “psychological medication”) and that victim was not assaulted by any guards while detained at Camp Bucca, notwithstanding marks on victim’s arm or the other soldier’s testimony. 4833 not required.

CID Report of investigation regarding alleged assault on detainee. Detainee was captured on July 3, 2004 in Baghdad. He was transported to a detention facility near Al Satar City, on Rashad Base, where he stayed for one night. He was then transported to an unknown facility about 45 minutes travel time from the first facility. The detainee was blindfolded with a cloth during transport, but not in detention. He was put in a cell by himself for 16 days. On the ninth day he was screaming in his cell, because he did not like being by himself. Three U.S. soldiers entered the cell, pushed him to the floor, cuffed his hands behind his back with metal cuffs, and tied his feet with plastic cuffs. The detainee began to thrash because he was scared. The soldiers then placed him on a stretcher face down, and placed another stretcher on his back, and tied the two stretchers with ropes, pinning the detainee between them. The soldiers then turned the stretchers over. The detainee was left in that position for three hours. He screamed for help and felt pain in his right wrist. Finally, a doctor came into the room and cut the ropes and removed the handcuffs. Investigation concludes that there was probable cause to believe the detainee was not abused and that “personnel used justifiable means to control [the detainee] during his seizures by placing him between two stretchers.”

This CID investigation into claims made by three Iranian detainees alleging they knew of a fellow Iranian being murdered at Airbase H3, Iraq. They allege the murder took place while they were being detained and interrogated by Coalition Forces. The three Iranians also alleged that they had been beaten and abused while detained and had a large amount of money stolen from them. The investigation established that “the offenses of Larceny of Private Property and Larceny of Private Funds” as well as “Cruelty and Maltreatment” did not occur as alleged. Moreover, the investigation in to the missing person report could not be substantiated and therefore unfounded….a search of detainee records in Iraq for the disposition of the man the Iranians say was murdered produced negative results.

Two (2) suspects in the theft from the Iraqi National Guard (ING) Training Camp at Camp Junction City, allege being abused while in custody. Both suspects provided facts "proven to be false and established patterns of not providing the truth". One of the detainees’ claims that he was hit during questioning, but stated that neither of the Marines present had any contact with him during any of the interrogations.

This CID investigation concerns an allegation of a face slap upon an Iraqi detainee held in custody between June 14th and 20th, 2003. The Iraqi alleges that during his interrogation an Egyptian interpreter slapped him with a sandal, punched him, and "mildly mistreated" him at a location called "Kilometer 22" while several Americans in civilian clothes stood by without intervening. This CID investigation was initiated when a review of an Interrogation report contained two (2) line detailing the alleged abuse. In the opinion of the CID investigators, there was insufficient evidence to prove or disprove the complaint; however, the investigation was subsequently re-opened on March 6, 2005, on the basis that the investigating officers had not made a sufficient effort to identify the "Kilometer 22" location, or to locate the detainee or the Egyptian interpreter. In the ensuing investigation, officials were unable to find individuals who could identify "kilometer 22", although they opined that it referred to either the "Blacksmith Hotel" location or to F.O.B. tiger; officials found and interviewed the Egyptian interpreter, although his statement is not included in the CID report. Officials were unsuccessful in finding the detainee. The investigation concluded that there was insufficient evidence to prove or disprove the allegation.

Investigation into charges against 7 soldiers for abusing an unknown Iraqi detainee, shooting at seized vehicles, and/or maintaining possession of weapons seized in Baghdad. A specialist testified that an Iraqi man was handed over to U.S. forces at a traffic checkpoint after he had threatened other Iraqis with an explosive. After the detainee allegedly made verbal threats against the troops, the specialist punched him multiple times in the face to "make him shut-up." The investigation also found that a private first class struck the detainee repeatedly in the face in response to blood being spat in his direction. The detainee suffered a broken jaw. While the detainee denied that he threatened Iraqi civilians or U.S. troops, he also denied that he was abused by U.S. troops, blaming his injuries on other detainees. During questioning, the detainee repeatedly asked about the safety of his children. On the same day as the abuse, U.S. soldiers seized a number of weapons from two groups of Iraqis that they thoughts were "up to no good." The troops destroyed their vehicles as to prevent their further use and kept the weapons. Even after being instructed to turn in the seized weapons, the soldiers maintained possession of one AK-47 and a number of pistols. The investigation resulted in 4 guilty charges, 2 dismissals, and 1 nonjudicial punishment of a reduction in rank, extension of duty, and restrictions. The charges included failure to obey general order, failure to obey direct order, failure to turn in captured property, failure to turn in seized property by order of the commander, larceny, and assault (battery).

This Military Police Investigative Report is based on allegations of detainee abuse at Camp Red, Baghdad. The allegations are that soldiers hooded detainees; made detainees stand on bricks; and threatened them with being run over with a Humvee. The First Sergeant in charge of the Unit gave a detailed explanation of his understanding of the alleged events. The 1SGT stated that detainees were indeed hooded, but only when they were being housed in segregated areas and the hooding was a prudent security measure to prevent the detainees from learning the lay-put of the camp and quarters of the soldiers. The 1SGT also stated that detainees were attempting to escape by jumping over the concertina wire and were required to stand on "a tall brick to limit their movement." Finally, there was no statement or evidence given concerning the Humvee incident. The CID investigation (0353-03-CID093-45256) did not find detainee abuse and the Camp Red SOP provided for segregation with hooding to control violent and disruptive detainees.

Detainee alleged that he was arrested by U.S. forces and placed in a hole in the ground with other detainees at an unknown location in Samara, Iraq for about three days, then threatened with death and taken to a room where he was placed on a box with wires attached to it. He felt heat come from the box and was in pain. He was later taken to a place that U.S. soldiers referred to as "the septic tank," and then to the Samara police station, where a U.S. soldier punched him and kicked him in the groin with enough force to cause him to urinate on himself. U.S. forces then transferred him to Abu Ghraib. At Abu Ghraib, he initially stayed in a tent at the Ganci Holding Area, where he was not abused. He was subsequently taken to the "hard site" at Abu Ghraib, where he was stripped of his clothing and sprayed with cold water; his head was pulled back while he was seated in a chair, causing him to lose consciousness; all of his hair, including eyebrows and moustache, were shaved off by a U.S. soldier; he was forced to wear white women's underwear with red roses on them; he was left for several days with no clothes (a jumpsuit was eventually provided); was deprived of blankets or a mattress for a longer period; and was terrorized by a large dog while tied to his cell door. 5th Special Forces Group was targeted in inquiry regarding Samara allegations but stated that there was no hole in the ground at their facility in Samara and that they had no records relating to the detainee.

A Colonel new to a military Company found movie entitled “Ramadi Madness” on the hard drive of the combat Company’s computer in the Company’s facilities in St. Augustine, Florida and reported the matter to CID. The movie was a composite of several video clips of wounded enemy prisoners of war (EPW) flexi-cuffed on the ground; a soldier kicking a prisoner in the face; a flexi-cuffed EPW being interrogated; and a soldier holding prisoner as he struck him in head with rifle butt. A sergeant admitted to compiling the video in January 2004. The Colonel, who reported the discovery of the video tape, had only recently taken command of the Company, and was not part of the Company when the video was made. The investigating CID officer determined that the video contained “inappropriate rather than criminal behavior”, and the investigation was terminated because there “would be of little or no value or leads remaining to be developed [that] are…significant” in part because the personnel who would be criminally implicated are no longer in the military, and only federal, not military, charges would be applicable and/or pursued against them now that they are civilians.

CID report of investigation following the report by two members of a military unit deployed to Iraq who accused their fellow unit soldiers of stealing money, food and cellular phones from Iraqi civilians on “numerous occasions”, while searching their vehicles at checkpoints. All of the soldiers accused of theft denied the allegations; however, a couple of them did admit using an Iraqi cell phone. The investigation cleared the soldiers of the theft charges, and instead found that the two soldiers making the allegations made them with the intent to make false official statements and conspired to falsely implicate the other soldiers when they “worked in concert to make false allegations against unit members.” The United States attorney declined to prosecute any of the subjects under investigation and the report anticipates taking no civil, administrative, or military action.

A CID Investigation was initiated based on the claims by a Sergeant that he witnessed several counter-intelligence (CI) agents abuse Iraqi detainees during interrogations while he was stationed in Samarra, Iraq. The Sergeant stated he saw CI agents “strike, pull the hair, and force into asphyxiation numerous Iraqi detainees.” He also stated that “some of the CI agents would point a loaded weapon at the detainees’ heads and tell them they would kill them if they did not talk”.

The Sergeant involved in the car and interpreter incident stated the following: After the car stop “He (the driver) was not placed in cuffs. I did not place my weapon in his mouth. I was carrying a 12 Gauge shotgun. I covered him when he was getting out of the truck. I was out of hand reach from him. I took him to the front of the truck and placed him in a search position.” As for the allegation of a Sergeant assaulting an Iraqi interpreter: the Sergeant admitted to rough handling the Iraqi, but stated “he was not, complying [with my orders for him to leave the compound], so I forcibly moved him to the front gate.

A CID investigation was initiated after an interrogator stated that he knew of abuse had occurred at the Baghdad International Airport (BIAP). The interrogator said that he was reporting this conduct because he felt the actions were inhumane even though every harsh interrogation was approved. However, the interrogator stated he did not have any first hand, direct or personnel knowledge of these accusations as being true, rather, he claims to have heard the allegation from an unnamed NCOIC. The abuse purportedly included sleep deprivation, tight hand-cuffs and a guard offering a prisoner a water bottle with urine in it instead of water. There are no specific dates or identifiable events in the allegations to document them as an incident to be confirmed. The CID investigation was closed because “the subject of this investigation is a member of TF 6-26 and the Special Agent in Charge, Security Operations Training Facility, has accepted investigative jurisdiction in this matter”.

Investigation initiated after Playboy Magazine published an article in May 2004, titled “Death and Dishonor,” alleging that soldiers of the 1/15th Infantry Battalion, 3d Brigade, 3d Infantry Division (Ft. Benning, GA), committed numerous war crimes.

This CID investigation was initiated after an article in the newspaper USA Today on July 6, 2004 ran claiming that a detainee named Makin Marwan Kaka, who was being held at the Hard Site of Abu Ghraib, was abused during his stay and interrogation at the facility. When interviewed for the investigation, Mr. Kaka stated that he was stripped of his clothing the first night at Abu Ghraib and slept nude on the floor that night. In the morning he asked the guards for some clothing and the guards, who genuinely thought Mr. Kaka had possession of his clothing with him in the cell, brought him clothing right away. According to Mr. Kaka, it appeared that the guards were not attempting to abuse him, but were mistaken about his possession of his clothing and responded quickly to provide him with adequate attire. Mr. Kaka also states that he was never beaten, sprayed with water or abused. He disavowed the USA Today story in total. The accusations of Cruelty & Maltreatment, as well as the accusation of Assault are shown to be unfounded

This heavily redacted investigative file by the FBI transcribes an interview with an FBI Special Agent. The interview's nature seems to be to obtain additional facts surrounding allegations made against a fellow FBI Special Agent, who may or may not be the subject of the investigation. Of the small amount of information available to read, the interviewee says the possible subject spoke openly about the torturing of captured Al Qaeda terrorists by both CIA and FBI; had extravagant spending habits; and, was critical of senior FBI agents.

On November 14, 2003, a soldier provided a sworn statement saying that while he was deployed to Iraq, he "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." The soldier stated that at Camp Red, Baghdad, he had seen Iraqi detainees "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...." The soldier said he had seen detainees being pushed and kicked by U.S. troops "every day [he] went down there." 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 "spook" 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 "insufficient evidence to prove or disprove" the allegations.

A detainee alleges he was burned with "hot gases" coming from a transport vehicle while he lay on his stomach in the back of the vehicle while being transported. Medical records revealed that the detainee suffered burn injuries which required three months of hospitalization, multiple skin grafts, the amputation of his right index finger, and the permanent loss of the use of his left fifth finger secondary to burn induced skin retraction. The unidentified detainee allegedly suffered extensive burns over his abdomen, anterior aspects of his lower extremities, the palm of his right hand, and the sole of his left foot. It is not known if the detainee received his injuries during capture or transport and whether or not his injuries were accidental or due from negligence, or from a malicious act.
