Interviewee was an Assistant Interrogation Analyst with the 302nd Military Intelligence Brigade.
Recalled one occasion in which a MP pushed a hooded-"untruthful" against a railing, causing the detainee to bleed. "I saw a naked detainee who was thrown in the black room (the Hole)," and was told the MP policy when putting a detainee in the hole was to throw them into the hole naked. "One stress position I witnessed only once was when we had a detainee handcuffed to the floor but we only did it for a short period." Recalled a time where MPs made a detainee do PTs. Recalled another instance where MPs went into a cell with weapons, reported the incident, but did not what happened to the MPs. Mentioned not knowing a person by the name of DJ.

WANT TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT UNDER OATH:
I arrived at Abu Ghraib in mid October 2003. 1 am a 9GH and when I arrived at Abu Ghraib I was assigned as an Assistant
Interrogation Analyst to work with Interrogators. My focus was Extreme Fighters. The first day we received a tour of the site. w
We were shown interrogation booths, where CAMP Vigilant and CAMP G ' .

We also received some general information on the Geneva Convention but no classes on it. We received the Interrogation Rulesa con c of iterations of the IROEs. I was not taught what was acceptable or not acceptable.
