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

A detainee interviewed at Camp Delta, Guantanamo stated that approximately three to four weeks earlier, while at Camp X-Ray US soldiers entered his cell and began to beat him without cause or reason. He claims they called him a “son of a bitch” and a “bastard” and he was being beaten because he was a Muslim and they were Christians. He stated he rolled on his stomach to protect a previous injury when a soldier jumped on his back and beat him about the head and face. He states that a female military person then grabbed his head and beat him into the cell floor. He stated he was choked until he passed out. He was taken to the hospital and treated, and then put in to an isolation cell.
