Emails between Navy NCIS Officer and an Officer in the Office of the Secretary of Defense re: Pending Criminal Cases of Iraqi Prisoner Deaths

Email exchange regarding the death of a civilian named Naeem Sadun Hattab who was detained in Iraq. Includes e-mail from a person at NCIS listing seven suspects in the death of Mr. Hattab. A reply to that email from OSD refers to a memo for the Secretary of Defense dated December 22, 2003, which alludes to "An aggregate of 16 personnel are presently under investigation by USACIDC in seven suspicious deaths. This number includes members of reserve and active units of the Army, one CIA civilian contractor and potentially members of a Navy Seal Team."
