DOD Memo re: Alledged Detainee Abuse at Guantanamo

A detainee who was not interested in being interrogated got in to a verbal spat with an interrogator who, after becoming angry with the detainee, threw a refrigerator and a chair at the detainees, injuring the detainee. There was also some very hard and harsh languish used to denigrate the detainee's mother.
