'please see the email:below from) regarding this issue. I had a meeting with •
and the. CID rep today and _we established:that the interviews referncedby1-1
belowwere not part cf .the current request I gave you today. However, I am concerned by the , bb76 c
in on the interviews or at least consulted. facthat none in. OGC, that I know of, was brought.
I understand fronflhat the OPR representativei ( attended the Interviews.
. • of the agents in Dallas and that there were no OPR-like issues that were of major concern.
also stated that none of our personnel Were embedded with the military and that 302
were reviewed for any reports of prisoner abuse and that none were found. In adition' I
stated that our guys have ben advised if they are witnesto abuse, to report ito
the military command.

In discussion with the CID rep. this week, I understand that for now CID just wants.' the list of. •
• .H3I personnel who were at Abu Ghraib from Oct-Dec 2003 so that they cariuse.the list to 1D b6
• unknown persons in photos that were found at the prison. SA I 'cannot say for now, , b 7
because her knowledge is limited she tells me, whether those photos show abuse. So; I told
her thatl would make sure that the request gets to our.GC and the Director's office after which
we may have questions of our own. She suggested that we submit an offical letter to the lead
investigator should we have question about the request since-She Has very little background
knowledge 'about the photos and or any potential allegations which may pertain to FBI
personnel.
As a follow up then on theissue raised byl—lemail, I have a call irttd Ian
the CDC of Dallas. I'll let yoU know what I find out. Thanks.

The only request I have seen or heard was CID wanting access to our SAs who they wanted to interview
regarding their knowledge of prisoner abuse. 'AS far as I am aware CID has made no allegation that FBI
persOnnel participated in prisoner 'abuse. Rather, they had allegations'from prisoners that military personnel
• abuse them, and then CID'determined that FBI personnel had interviewed the same prisoner. Originally I. was
hestitate in.c!lowing FBI:personnel to be interviewed, rather having:their-302 of the prisoner interview speak for
.3: itself.. Through discusSionS 'with OPR it was decided that in the interest of cooperation the military should be able'
to interview ourpersonnel. That has happened on a couple of occasions (1 don't have the exact numbers), and •
the feddback from the SA and OPR who accompanied the SA has been positive; no surprises. I am not aware of •
the Specific questions asked of the SAs. I am agreeable in allowing the military, access-to our SAs. Again, I am
aware of no allegation that ourpersonnel participated in any abuse.. Further, we (1TOS-2) did a review of all the
prisoner interview 302s after the initial allegation of abuse, and found that none of the 302's mentioned anything
relative to.the interviewee claiMing he/she had been abUsed by the military. I have never represented myself as
legal counsel, in .fact I have never spoken with anyone from CID that I arri aware of. I have 'either worked through
OPR.or FBI-Dt., CDC in one case.
Hope this helps:
