FBI Interview of FBI Official re: Investigation of Possible Detainee Abuse at Guantanamo Bay

Telephonic interview of former Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) interrogator. The interrogator was assigned to GTMO for two months, February and March of 2003 and stated that during that time she did not witness any incidents she believed were inconsistent with FBI or DOJ guidelines. She did, however, witness two separate incidents where the treatment of detainees was "questionable." In both incidents, the detainees were chained hand and foot in the fetal position and laying on the floor of the interview rooms. The rooms lacked furnishings and the rooms did not have food and/or water, also, the temperature of the room was either "extremely" hot or cold; on one occasion, loud rap music played in the interrogation room. The interrogator believed the detainees were kept in these conditions/positions for 18-24 hours and longer, at times the detainees urinated and/or defecated on themselves.
