GENERAL SITUATION


Following 9/11 —


Few Soldiers with any significant experience in detainee and detainee-interrogation operations.


Army doctrine and training focused on a linear battlefield that did not envision significant numbers of detainees.

That changed beginning with operations in Afghanistan and continues in Iraq. •
• - &ride October 2001, U.S. forces have detained in excesa.of 50,000 individuals including enemy prisoner's of war and several categories of internees.
-Detainee operations have been conducted in support of ongoing military operations against enemies who do not follow the Geneva conventions and who-violate the Law of War.
-New operational environment demands significant levels of human intelligence.

STRATEGIC SITUATION


Detainee. abuse cases have over-Shadowed the actions of the hundredS of thousands of Soldiers who have served and continue to serve with distinction. and honor;


Detained abuse cases have alsO served to decrease the visibility of ongoing Army actions to improve detention and interrogation capabilities.


Ultimately, must recognize that the actions of a single Soldier may have strategic and operational implications:

-the impact of detainee abuse on the successful outcome of
specific OEF and OIF objectives may not be known for some time

• - already readily apparent that the cases of detainee-abuse have -weakened the U:S. military'S example of moral leadership not only im Arabic countries, but around the world, anti- evert in. the United States.
