FBI Memo re: Interview of Detainee at Guantanamo Bay

Detainee interviewed at Guantanamo. The detainee stated that had heard that "40-50 detainees intended to commit suicide after Ramadan ended because they were tired of being detained with no prospect of being released and they were tired of being mistreated by guards." He also stated that he never had any problems witht he Americans and when shown photos of Al Queda members he denied knowing them. He did say that "was not aware of anyone in the camp who had admitted to being associated with AL QAEDA, however, there were many detainees who were TALIBAN fighters". He concluded by saying that once he is released he would look for a job and try to marry.
