Formica Report Annex 117: Statement of Major - Commander Charlie Company, 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group

Statement of Commander of Charlie Company, 2nd Battalion, 10 Special Forces Group, attached to Memo for Record dated August 7, 2004. Mentions allegations of abuse, and states, "I am not familiar with the individuals making these allegations.... I was not present during their interrogations." Also discusses a temporary detention facility; Commander describes it as "adequate ... for the purposes of temporary detention," but notes, "Short-term detention to me is anywhere from 0 to 72 hours. If anyone was there for more than 5 to 7 days, I would think it was excessive." Also mentions a detention facility in Samarra that "normally held three or four detainees." Says that he was accountable to both CJTF-7 and CJSOTF-AP Policies for the decision to keep a detainee longer than 72.
