Emails between FBI Officials re: Behavioral Analysis Unit's Work at Guantanamo

These are emails between FBI Behavioral Analysis Unit and FBI officials stateside. The email is an update on the BAU’s progress and activities while at working with other agencies at Guantanamo The author mentions that they are continuing to assist the interview teams and that the teams are making progress. They participated in a PsyOps meetings and were also asked to review a "DIA Behavioral Ops plan." The unit also provides training to new people coming in on the interview teams. The document ends as the author sarcastically asks if his recent studying of the Qur'an qualifies him for "disability (mental) retirement."
