relieved of his duties as

because he wee in violation

of the Division order forbidding non-duty related contact with
detainees. Specifically,

was giving detainees unauthorized items,

i.e. foodi.ebich he had not been directed to do. In addition, he was
talking to detainees about subjects net related to his duties.

4. While in Camp Fallujah, Iraq, 1111 requested mast or a court martial in reaction to counseling he had received for numerous deficiencies including Unauthorized Absence from a class he was directed to give, disobeying an order (specifically not wearins_df a proper uniform and failure to keep his weapon on his person).

field to the detention facility to elude his killers.

6. It is my opinion that fbA7(0) has serious psychological
deficiencies, matt le to separate reality from fantasy I

also believe that

Lad invent stories to either draw
attention away or towards himself depending on what is the most
advantageous situation fox himself. in regards to his allegations of
abuse at the detention facility,

I believe that unless his story can be
corroborated by an another individual, his allegations must be suspect
due to his psychological deticiencies and behavior in regards to
relationships with detainees which he has exhibited in the past.
