Email from Robert D. Grant FBI to Toni M. Fogle FBI re: Reporting Protocol in Afghanistan

An email included a forwarded chain of emails regarding the protocol for reporting in Afghanistan. A Special Agent may or may not have been a witness to the death of a detainee and had been interviewed by the Naval Criminal Investigative Services about the death in question. Concerns have been voiced that he might have a "failure to report problem" with the incident and might be "in trouble" with the FBI; the email asks how to proceed with this problem.

For info of all:
You can see the protocol bela"" for reportir9 in the Afghanistan and then osd Irecollection.
Here'sthe background from Spt he was with the SF forces that captured the subject in question. After
a raid, the subject was taken away for interrogation and as always, Spf lalong with the rest of the
shooyers (SF to which he is attached) departed to return to their base of operations.I ~as not present or in
the vicinity of the interrogation that evidently led to the death of the SUbject. He wrote his after action. Some time
later, NCIS came to him with a written list of questions, in retrosapect he now realizes had to do with the death in
question, which he responded to. He has already been interviEle~ by rCIS. The NCIS investigator this time
would not'give him any info or say whether he is a target or not. spoke with the Agent's Association
attorneyand based on that conversation and the facts above, he pans 0 talk with NCIS, today.
I need to know from where the concerns came from that have been vooiced he might have a failure to report Iprabler and might be in trouble with us.

All agents in Afghanistan.-who participate in SSEs are required to complete an after action report (MR) upon
return. Within this MR, they note tim departure and return, information or items recovered, and any
pertinent or noteworthy activity. I think two SSEs while I was there and he was out on a third and had not
returned when I left. On one of the SSEs as asked by the military to provide answers to a set of b 6
.quesnons that I believe are related to the InCI en in question but I'm not sure without knowing additional b7C
.details. So, in addition to the MR, there may also be a second document descrlblnq his actions and what he
