Emails between DIA Officers re: Investigation and One of Our Own

This email concerns an investigation in to an account of a DIA/DHS officer who while at the Bagram Collection Point participated in the abuse of an Uzbek who was turned over to Coalition forces by local villagers. The report, unsubstantiated, was that once the Uzbek came in to custody the DIA/DHS officer allegedly “threw a few pooches of his own” on the detainee, who was already beaten-up during his capture by local villagers. The report of detainee abuse was already investigated and determined to be unfounded, but this email between DIA officers concerns attending a meeting on the conduct of the DIA/DHS officer separately accused, and if one or both of the email participants should attend the meeting.

FYI. I mel Wine Mingliriliis morning on another mailer and they confirmed there were no
incidences investigated or under investigation involving OHS personnel misconduct There were Iwo
ssue; and a detainee incident while I was J2X in R Neither

mvestioations. however, that involve me—the
one is a concern as I'm not me subject of the investigation and have only tangential involvement via a statement
given in support of the investigation. They stressed there is no/no need for OHS concern on tnis Trey •Kvesie:
any knowledge of this inveshgation be very. very close hold
