Email from [redacted] Assistant General Counsel FBI to Toni M. Fogle FBI re: More Requests Coming From Military Investigators

An email about FBI agents getting contacted by the military to partake in interviews as witnesses to allegations of prisoner abuse. One FBI Agent will be asked to recall any injuries or marks or complaints on a detainee he interviewed at Guantanamo Bay. Other agents, who were present at Abu Gharib prison during a three month period in which military personnel committed abuse, will have their names sent over to the Army.

I expect that an EC will soon be forthcoming identifying me as the point of contact for the NSLB on these
requests. Even now, I'm starting to collect them. Here's the latest: The second one is of more concern than the
first.
1. An agent in NY namedl Ihas been contacted for such an interview, he contacted his Division' b6
Counsel who contacted me. Military Investigators out of Ft. Belvoir, MD want to speak to him about whether he b7C
noticed any injuries or marks on a detainee he interviewed at Guantanarno Bay" The military is producing a letter
saying that this is the only issue to be covered and that there are no allegations against the agent. An Assistant
Division Counsel in NY is going to be present for the interview which is to be done by telephone sometime in the
future. I spoke with the Assistant Division Counsel , he's going to make sure that the questions don't go beyond
the issue they identify into other issues that will require authorizations to release information. (It didn't sound as
though the agent recalls any injuries or marks or complaints re: injuries)
2. I have heard through another attorney in my office that another request (which will be forwarded to me) has
come in from the Military Commissions prosecuting the military personnel from Abughraib in Iraq. Apparently, the
defense of this military defendant is going to be that he committed the abuse as he was instructed to do by others
who were responsible for intelligence interrogations of the detainees. We were contacted by a Captain who was
prosecuting the case seeking the names of FBI personnel who were present at Abu G. during a three month
period. I will have more specific information on this request in the next few hours. I would like to call you when I
get it and when you have time to give me your thoughts on it.
