FBI Memo re: Response to Canvass Email Concerning Treatment of Detainees at Guantanamo Bay

This memo is a response to a Bureau wide memo sent by Steve McCraw to illicit information from FBI agents who toured through Guantanamo Bay to report any suspected or witnessed abuse of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. The FBI agent states that he did see one (1) detainee who appeared to have "blood shot eyes and what appears to be blood that congealed to his eyelashes". The agent stated that he was sending supporting material, including photos, in a follow-up email.
