, WANT TO MAKE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT UNDER OATH:

The mission of the team was to provide an overall assessment of interrogation operations, training and advice and assistance. My focus was the analytical portion of the operation.

In my opinion the analysts worked extremely hard to support Interrogation operations. During my time at AG, I did not witness any abuse or maltreatment of detainees. I never witnessed nor heard of any MI person asking or insinuating that an MP should abuse a detainee. I never witnessed nor heard of any MP offering to abuse a detainee to assist interrogation operations. I also never witnessed nor heard of any dogs being used in interroga
