Formica Report Annex 24: DOD Memo re: Efforts to Ensure Proper Detainee Treatment

Paper refers frequently to a redacted policy name as well as to CJTF-7 policy. "CJTF-7 policy allows detainees to be held beyond 72 hours (up to 14 days) for continued interrogation. No approval required." Approves the use of 21 interrogation techniques on detainees. In [redacted] (another policy?) the "Fear-Up (Harsh) technique was not approved due to concern this could...violate the Geneva Convention." The unnamed policy also "approved additional interrogation techniques for non-EPWs, subject to a written request, legal review and approval by commander." Paper states that "according to media reports," a "murky command relationship between the Commander of the Abu-G [Abu Ghraib] detention facility and Military Intelligence ... contributed to abuses."
