GentlemenThe
good newsr ~as the O~IY indtvidual Army CIO had asked to interview, regarding the allegations
of abuse in Iraq ,~r---"IIr-:a,....,Jccompanie 0 Ft Belvoir ye.sterday, and it was pretty painless, as I'm sure he'll
attest.
The bad news:Ddimed you all out as other possible witnesses, so now they need to speak with you as
well! Actually, it was coming; theyjust didn't have their act together, yet.

Aflyway, as the interview is both voluntary on your part and easy as I indicated, in addition to the fact that I am
leavinq town, I am placing the onus on each of you to contact SAl IArmy CIOb Ito
advise whetheryou are willing to speak with him and schedule a mutually convenient time. an give you the
scoop, very informal, but I wouldadvise taking the time to review any paper you may have done to refresh your
recollection.

Finally, once you've completed your interview, it will be typed as a statement to which YOU'll swear. Please
obtain a copy of the signed statement once you're satisfied with it and have sworn/signed It. Send a copy
to my attention.
Once again, this is entirelyVOluntary, however Army nfeds a rerponse one way or.another; as this is very high
priority to them. So, pleasetake the time to call Agent At his request, because he must report daily as
to his investigative steps taken, I'm forwarding your office numbers to him, so that he can track you down if he
hasn't heard from'you.
