Email between Thomas J. Harrington, Valerie E. Caproni and others re: Finalized FBI Electronic Communications with CDs of Photos

E-mail between T.J. Harrington, Valerie Caproni and other un-named FBI officials concerning photographs on a CD from various FBI personnel during their TDY rotation to the Baghdad Operation Center. An FBI agent who reviewed the CD did not believe the CD depicted misconduct or inappropriate behavior by U.S. personnel against detainees. The email describes an on-going effort to track-down any evidence, i.e. CDs, photos, etc.. That would support a claim of detainee abuse.
