Emails between NCIS and First Marine Expeditionary Force, re: Detainee Questions

String of emails in response to NCIS inquiry into an incident mentioned in a USMC report regarding all Iraqi detainee abuse and death cases. The NCIS official had not heard of one incident concerning detainee who is suspected of dying of head injuries after jumping out of window in Husaybah, Iraq, on April 19, 2004. One reply states that Command is aware of issue as is the Operations Branch of the Staff Judge Advocate (SJA). Another USMC email notes that the author spoke with an IMEF Fallujah official about this case, who said he did not notify NCIS of the death. The same person also advised that NCIS was not notified about abuse alleged to have occurred on June 1, 2003. On that day, marines from the Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, were alleged to have made four Iraqi juveniles kneel beside two shallow fighting holes while pistol discharged in mock execution. The email's author requested that IMEF reporting format to be amended to reflect accurately when NCIS is notified of allegations of abuse. Replies say that IMEF SJA was ordered to correct their original report. The NCIS response states that “only because IMEF erroneously listed NCIS on two cases that we were never notified on or conducted an investigation.”

EPW issues

AllummMEMOIMOMMMOP

We're in the process of finalizing some EPW issues for the Pentagon.
Last night a report went to the White House via SecDef of all the Iraqi
detainee issues (abuse & death cases) and one incident that the USMC
reported that I had not seen involved the following:

Unit - 3rd Bn, 7th Mar, 1st MARDIV, I MEF
Date: 19Apr04
Location: Husaybah, Iraq (3/7 Holding area)
Victim: Unidentified

Summary: "On 19 Apr04, a detainee (suspected Muj martyr) captured DODDON 000238 during heavy combat operations died of unknown causes 36 hours after he
ion

was apprehended. The detainee is suspected to have died from head
injuries suffered during one of over 20 escape attempts, including one
in which he escaped from his restraints and threw himself through a 1/2
story window, landing on his head. Subsequent examination by a medical
officer (MO) had him conscious, with good pupils, and responsive.
However, a few hours later he took a turn for the worse and died with a
Corpsman present. The examining MO surmised that the detainee died from
internal cranial bleeding from the fall that was slow to kill him. The
entire period of the detainee's captivity occurred during an intense
combat engagement. Since the fall out the window did not appear to have
caused any injury, the detainee was not evacuated due to military.

necessity."

Disposition: No allegations of abuse
Status: Closed

We need to determine what (if any) type of Command report was initiated
to document this incident.

A111111111. can you please make inquiries at the IMEF there in Iraq.

Allilianything that you have at HQUSMC would help.

Only because IMEF erroneously listed NCIS on two cases that we were

This is the document I tried to forward the other day, but you actually
sent
it tot me. Look at #'3 and 7, NCIS is listed as having an investigation
and

we don't. Inquire with I MEF SJA and determine why they have a NCIS
investigation noted ??

Thanks

We're in the process of finalizing some EPW issues for the Pentagon.
Last night a report went to the White House via SecDef of all the
Iraqi

detainee issues (abuse & death cases) and one incident that the USMC
reported that I had not seen involved the following:

Unit - 3rd Bn, 7th Mar, 1st MARDIV, I MEF
Date: 19Apr04
Location: Husaybah, Iraq (3/7 Holding area)
Victim: Unidentified

Summary: "On 19 Apr04, a detainee (suspected Muj martyr) captured
during heavy combat operations died of unknown causes 36 hours after
he
was apprehended. The detainee is suspected to have died from head
injuries suffered during one of over 20 escape attempts, including
one
in which he escaped from his restraints and threw himself through a
1/2
story window, landing on his head. Subsequent examination by a
medical
officer (MO) had him conscious, with good pupils, and responsive.
However, a few hours later he took a turn for the worse and died with
a
Corpsman present. The examining MO surmised that the detainee died
from
internal cranial bleeding from the fall that was slow to kill him.
The
entire period of the detainee's captivity occurred during an intense
combat engagement. Since the fall out the window did not appear to

have
caused any injury, the detainee was not evacuated due to military
necessity."
