Fay Report Annex: Statement of Major General Walter Wojdakowski, Deputy Commander V Corps re: Operations and Detainee Handling at Abu Ghraib Prison

This statement by Major General Walter Wojdakowski described Abu Ghraib prison environment and general roles of Sanchez, Karpinski and Pappas. There is no specific mention of abuse, and the document is very difficult to read due to poor image quality.
