We need to be very careful here. Everyone should pay particular attention to the distinctions between allegations of abuse and the use of techniques which fall outside ofFBJlDOJ training and policy. As I stated in my email yesterday, I am not aware of any credible allegations of abuse by anyone in GTMO.

Our Behavioral Assessment Unit (BAU) disagreed with the use of specific techniques in the case
oOas they opined that the techniques would not be successful and they could produce b6 _~
unreliable results. BAU did not make any allegations of abuse that 1 am aware of. b 7C _.;

Once again, I would refer you to my comments below. FBI disapproval of DOD techniques and alleging abuse ofdetainees are two vastly different issues.
FYI -the Navy IG is arriving in GTMO today to conduct an independent inquiry of the operation here.
