Emails between DIA Officials re: Development of Interrogation Policy

Theses emails are between DIS Officials discussing developing interrogation policies and guidelines. One of the authors states that the interrogation mission is codified under the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Combat Command doctrine. However, questionable conduct in the past by certain interrogators and murky rules of the road led to the need for an interrogation policy to be developed. One of the authors states "Frankly, if never occurred to me that anyone except DIA would prepare and issue such a policy. We issue policies on everything else we do, why not interrogation?"

attended several OSD legal meetings on inlet-rogation policy. I believe the aim y beton (9 the Combatant Commanders and fall under their rules is shortsighted. It seems LO me that these individuals need to be e to operate off of a ul y c • nate an vet • interrogation policy. We have the experience and expertise to prepare such a document. and it definitely should be a joint document. If the lawyers want it to he II Joint Staff document, then I would argue the way to go is for DIA to coordinate and dispatch The
