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. The agent stated the following "During [my] second deployment, 07/17/2003 to 09/02/2003, I observed a detainee being exposed to loud music and a strobe light during an interrogation. I do not recall the date that this took place, the detainee's name, or who was interrogating the detainee. I saw what was going on at approximately 10:00 am and I believe the detainee was referred to as the prison man due to his knowledge of chemical [and] biological weapons."

This memo 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. The memo is a telephonic transcription of an interview conducted to learn of an FBI employees observations while in Guantanamo.

Also, the employee believed the detainees were kept in those conditions for 18-24 or more hours and that the detainees had urinated and defecated themselves.

A DOD Contract Linguist stated that he was involved in at least two questionable interrogation techniques while on duty in Iraq. An unidentified interrogator choked a detainee with a rope noose, lifting the detainee up slowly until the detainee stated he would talk if let down. The interrogator then lowered the detainee to the ground, whereupon the detainee gave a confession. An Air Force Office of Special Interrogations Agent then placed a gun to the temple of a detainee until he confessed. The memo states "It is believed that the above situations, as described, are questionable techniques as defined by law and regulation. It is our understanding that agents must report any such action to their RAC immediately".

On September 14, 2004, a detainee stated that when he was captured (possibly in Khowst), an individual forced him to talk by holding a knife to his throat. Then he was forced to hold his hands out to carry sandbags, which caused abrasions in his stomach. Later, an interrogator at Bagram, Afghanistan forced him to scrub floors and clean urine buckets. Records show he was interrogated at Bagram on 06/24/02. The questionable techniques the detainee mentioned appear to have been inconsistent with the guidelines of 02/07/02's Presidential Executive Order that all detainees be treated humanely and contrary to principles in international law.

Allegations also included: Maltreatment of detainees; theft of private property; and allegation of unlawful use of force - all were found to be unsupported by the facts or evidence. Numerous soldiers admitted to transporting detainees on the Humvee hood, but the investigation found “It is physically impossible to put a person in between the brush guard and the hood. [Since] there are only three (3) inches of clearance behind brush guard”. Furthermore, there was no evidence to support the charges of maltreatment or theft.

Interview of a detainee at Camp Delta, Guantanamo Bay. The detainee said that he is in good health, he is fed well, or at least as well as the other detainees, and the guards are treating him with respect. However, the detainee expressed concerns that his Muslim brothers were sent to isolation for breaking some Camp rules, and as an added punishment, they were forced to shave their beards. He indicated that many detainees are very angry about these brothers who were forced to shave their beards, and consider it as an attack on their religion. He said that other actions by camp guards have also angered the detainees, such as some guards making fun of them while they are praying and having their Qurans taken away as punishment for breaking rules. Although the guards no longer make fun of their prayers, and they do not take away their Qurans unless they are in isolation, the detainees still see these incidents as evidence their religion is being threatened. The detainee then stated that "does not believe killing innocents is right and says that the Quran forbids this. He added that God will judge everyone's actions in the end". He believes the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 was wrong. The interview then turned to the detainees activities in Afghanistan. The interviewers then told the detainee that they do not believe he was being truthful about his account of his activities in Afghanistan. The interviewers then gave an account of what they believe he did during his trip to Afghanistan [redacted]. The detainee denied knowing Usama bin Laden or being part of his activities. The interview then concluded.

Interviewee's Procedure 15 interview is an addendum to his prior interview (Interviewee's title and length of assignment are unknown). Interviewee stated that he observed a detainee hooded and handcuffed to a railing. When he inquired about the detainee, a Military Policeman (MP) told him that the MPs were short handed and the MP "often had to 'park' a detainee somewhere if they could not immediately return him to his cell." The second incident he recalled was a detainee, was sleeping on a mattress on the floor in the hallway, handcuffed and covered with a blanket. When the interviewee inquired, he was told the detainee defecated on himself. Recalled the evening of a shooting in the Hard Site that LTG Sanchez gave a blanket approval for "somewhat harsher interrogation." Stated that during this time an Iraqi Police Officer was taken into a shower room where an MP threw a bucket of water at him "to wake him up." Interviewee also recalled an incident where a detainee had a gun in his cell and had to be taken by force. During his interrogation, the MPs used a particular MP as intimidation, telling the detainee to answer or the particular MP would return. The MP, at one point, put his hand over the nose and mouth of the detainee (cutting off his airflow). Also, the MP used his collapsible nightstick to push and possibly twist the detainee's arm causing pain. Interviewee added that when the MP walked out of the cell, he told the interviewee he "knew how to do this without leaving any marks." Interviewee recalled dogs were authorized and used in the facility. The interviewee also recalled an incident where a detainee was in isolation and one or two MPs and a male dog handler with a leashed, but unmuzzled, dog approached the detainee's cell. The detainee was handcuffed to the cell door, while the dog was allowed to jump up at the cell door, bark and snarl at the detainee.

The MI Interrogator stated "I never placed any of my detainees on sleep deprivation. I did use a stress position, at first they did not have to be approved, but later they did. I believe I did request Isolation for one detainee. I do not remember who proved it. I believe the individual I requested Isolation for was already in isolation when I received his file, so I had to request to keep him in isolation." The MI officer went on to say "If you simply passed by the hallway by the isolation area you would not see the detainees naked. You had to go up to the cell to see that detainees were naked." Finally the MI officer stated "I never witness or was aware of any detainee abuse, photos or videos of detainee abuse or humiliation of detainees.

This FBI memo is a condensation of interview notes of a Saudi national captured on the battlefield in Afghanistan and held at Guantanamo. The Saudi was in Afghanistan during the time of the Taliban and when they fell he was captured. After being captured he claimed to have been a member of Al Qaeda, a "true Jihad" and specifically stated that he received training from Usama bin Laden himself. He stated that when the Americans began their attack on Afghanistan he stayed with the Afghan Taliban fighters and other foreign fighters in Afghanistan. He was brought to Mazur E' Sharif where he was held until a riot broke allowed him to escape. He was re-captured in December 2001; brought to Kandahar Airport for processing; and eventually to Guantanamo as an enemy combatant. This memo also states that he was visited by a delegation from Saudi Arabia while at Guantanamo.
