Formica Report Annex 66: Statement of Master Sergeant

Statement of officer who supervises detainee operations at Radwaniyah Palace Complex. "Bread and water is basically what we can support them with. They get as much bread as they can eat and one piece three times a day was more than they wanted." Refers to interrogation practices, and states that "[redacted] have never interrogated on their own, and have never been left by themselves in a room with a detainee." Mentions a military dog named Coji that was given to the unit as a gift but is not used for interrogations, although the person believes there is a regulation allowing the use of dogs. "I've heard allegations of everything from probes to dogs, all kinds of tortures. All the stuff you see on T.V. at Abu Ghraib, I've heard about us to [sic]."
