. WANT TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT UNDER OATH:
1 arrived at Abu Ghraib on 20 October 2003 to conduct interrogation operations. When I first arrived to Abu Ghratb, I received a legal classes on Interrogation Rules of Engagement (MOE), the boundaries on interrogations, a tour of the facilities. on the Third day we toured the Screening area, the LSA and had classes on paperwork and Report Writing. We did receive minimal training on the Geneva Convention. It was mostly what we learned at school but a step down on what techniques we could use. We were not allowed to use Pride and Ego down. When 1 first arrived, COL P.O.PPAS• was in charge of the whole plate. I never witnessed any detainee abuse, never saw any photos or the use of dogs. I never knew of any Ml personnel tolling the MPs to "soften up" the detainee or give them "The Treatment". Any deviation from the approved techniques had to be submitted and signed by LTG Sanchez.
Q. Do you have anything to add to this statement?
A. No .
