Email from FBI Agent to FBI Frankie Battle, Arthur M. Cummings and Others re: DOD Interrogators Impersonating FBI Agents While Interrogating Detainees at Guantanamo Bay

The author of the email expresses his/her concern over the impersonation of FBI SSAs by DoD interrogators. Noting that if the information regarding the treatment/interrogation of detainees is made public, the FBI "DOD interrogators will not be held accountable because these torture techniques were done [by] 'FBI' interrogators. The FBI will [be] left holding the bag before the public."
