FBI Memo re: Interview of Detainee at Camp Delta, Guantanamo Bay

Interview of a detainee at Camp Delta, Guantanamo. This heavily redacted document contains some discussion on the detainee's capture wherein he states that he was beaten in Kandahar, specifically, he stated that the normal procedure for being transferred from his cell to be interviewed, consisted of him lying face down on the ground outside of his cell, with a soldier placing their boot on his back and another soldier holding his feet (the ground was dirty and rocky). Also, he recalled having his feet kicked in order to keep him moving. He was also shown a photocopied photograph of Richard Reed and his shoe ("The Shoe Bomber"), whom he could not positively identify but stated he may look familiar.
