FYI - this is an update on the 2 Prisoner Abuse cases we have open. The military may be referring others but the
large stack of documents we were forwarded distilled down to two cases. The statute cited by DOJ as the basis
for our investigations is 18 USC Sec.1 13. DOJ has delegated all abuse cases to the EDVA.
