SECTION IV - FINDINGS (para 3-10, AR 15-6)
Lae (investigating officer) (board), having carefully considered the evidence, finds:
THE INVESTIGATION FINDS THAT ROOT CAUSE OF THE ESCAPE WAS DUE TO EXTREMELY LOW VISIBILITY.
INEXPERIENCED COMPOUND GUARDS, OVERCROWDING AND MOVEMENT OF GUARD ASSETS FROM TOWERS
BEFORE A COMPLETE COUNT WAS MADE

DURING THE EVENING IN QUESTION, 12 JANUARY, THE SOG DECIDED TO PUT THE "FOG PLAN" INTO EFFECT. WHAT
THIS ENTAILS IS CLEARING ALL DETAINEES FROM THEIR TENTS AND MOVING THEM TO THE INNER COMPOUND TO
SHRINK THE PERIMETER ALL DETAINEES ARE ACCOUNTED FOR AND THEN THE TOWER GUARDS MOVE IN TO
FORM A PERIMETER AROUND THE INN R COMPOUND. THE TOWER GUARD IN FRONT OF COMPOUND 10 SPC
MARSHALL WAS INSTRUCTED BY SFC OG) TO KEEP EYES ON THE COMPOUND CONTROL MP THAT
WENT TO WAKE DETAINEES FROM THEIR ENTS. FROM HIS TOWER LOOKING SOUTH, HE COULD NOT SEE
CLEARLY THE FRONT HOLDING CELL DUE TO THE FOG AND A BLIND SPOT FROM THE CP TENT. IT IS BELIEVED
THAT AT THIS TIME, 3 DETAINEES EXCITED THE FRONT HOLDING CELL AND CROSSED CENTERLINE ROAD WHERE
THERE IS NO WIRE AND VERY LITTLE LIGHTING. THE THIRD DETAINEE WAS SITED BY THE TOWER GUARD
(DISMOUNTED FROM TOWER) IN COMPOUND 11. HE CHALLENGED HIM, SHOT HIM WITH NON LETHAL AND HE
JUMPED BACK IN THE WIRE.
ONCE WHAT THEY THOUGHT A COMPLETE COUNT WAS OBTAINED, THE SOG INSTRUCTED THE TOWER GUARDS TO
DISMOUNT FROM THE AND MOVE IN CLOSER TO THE INNER COMPOUND. I BELIEVE THAT WHEN THIS
OCCURRED, THE FOUR DETAINEES THAT GOT OUT THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE INNER COMPOUND HAD ALP
EXCITED THE COMPOUND WI AND HAD MOVED THROUGH THE TENTS TOWARD THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE OUTER
COMPOUND. WHEN THE TOWER GUARDS MOVED UP TO THE NORTH SIDE, THE DETAINEES WENT OUT THE BACK
AND WERE APPREHENDED BY THE QRF THAT WAS ROAMING THE SOUTH BERM AND SPOTTED THEM.

RECOMMENDATIONS;

1.
THAT MP'S BE POSITIONED AROUND THE INNER COMPOUND BEFORE THE DETAINEES ARE BROUGHT FORWARD AND THAT THE TOWER GUARDS ARE NOT PULLED OUT BEFORE THIS OCCURS.

2.
MOVE CP TENTS SO THEY DO NOT OBSTRUCT TOWER GUARD SITE OF INNER COMPOUND.

3.
EMPLACE CHAIN LINK FENCING (AS PLANNED IN SOW 9 TO LOGCAP CONTRACT). THE CONCERTINA WIRE IN

-ACE IS NOT IN GOOD SHAPE AND EASILY PENb IRATED AT THIS POINT.
4.
COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT BE UPGRADED. BATTERIES ARE NOT HOLDING CHARGES AND THERE IS INADEQUATE COMMUNICATIONS OUND THE COMPOUND. MP'S SHOULD NOT GO IN DETAINEE TENTSWITHOUTCOMMUNICATION. (SGT OULD BE COUNCELLED ON THIS)

5.

6.

REHEARSALS OF THE FOG PLAN S OULD C NTINUE TO BE CONDUCTED.
DO NOT EXCEED COMPOUND CAPACITY OF 500. THERE WERE 651 DETAINEES IN THE WIRE THAT NIGHT.
7.
PUT UP FENCING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF CENTERLINE ROAD AND IMPROVE LIGHTING. IMPROVE INNER COMPOUND WIRE SO THEY CAN'T EASILY GET OUT ONCE ACCOUNTED FOR THERE.
SECTION V - RECOMMENDATIONS (para 3-11, AR 15-6) In view of the above findings. the (investigating officer) (board) recommends:
AFTER THOROUGHLY REVIEWING THE SITUATION , I CAN NOT FAULT ANY INDIVIDUAL SOLDIERS IN THE COMPOUND FOR BEING NEGLIGENT OR DERELICT IN THEIR DUTIES RESULTING IN THE ESCAPES. THE FOG PLAN WORKED IN THE OTHER TWO COMPOUNDS WITHOUT INCIDENT THAT NIGHT. WITH ADDITIONAL REHEARSALS AS WELL AS IMPLEMENTATION OF THE OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS I DO NOT SEE THIS REOCCURRING.
ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDATIONS:
8.
EMERGENCY ACTION PLANS SHOULD BE WRITTEN UP AS SOPS THAT CAN BE THOROUGHLY UNDERSTOOD.

9.

INFRACTIONS/PUNISHMENT ETC.

6 detainees escaped from Compound 10 under heavy fog conditions. A seventh made an attempt but was deterred. The escape was noted at 0330 and 4 detainees were recaptured in subsequent search. They were placed in Compound 12. 2 detainees, above, are still missing and the search continues.
8. Remarks: The fog had a tremendous impact on the operations to secure the facility. The detainees in Compound 10 attempted to conduct an escape north and south of the compound. The MPs captured 5 escapees; unfortunately 2 were able to get over the wire and beyond the perimeter.

AFRC-CNY 08 January 2004
MEMORANDUM FOR: Record
SUBJECT: Escaped Detainees on 12 January 2004 t Camp Bucca.
SUMMARY OF EVENTS: On the morning of 11 January 2004, the Sergeant of the Guard (SOG) of the IF operations at Camp Bucca, made the decision to implement the FOG Plan. The damp weather created such a FOG around the our of 0030 that it was near impossible to see 20 to 30 feet in front of them. Concerned about the visibility of the tower guards, the SOG ordered the compound to apply the FOG plan and inform the chain of command. Additional Patrols and MPs were sent out to the exterior perimeter to form a more complete 360 degree around the compound.
The FOG plan results in moving all the detainees into the front holding cell of compounds. As a result, all detainees are in a tighter enclosure and easy to watch and maintain 360 degree security. Once the detainees are secured and in the holding area, the tower guards move in to form a perimeter. The compound control NCOs count each detainee going into the holding area to ensure full accountability. Once the fog lifts and the visibility is in such a manner that the MPs can see all points of the perimeter of each compound, the tower guards return to the towers.
SGT.11111.(NCOIC) and SPC ialler who are the compound control NCOs of 10,
began to apply the FOG plan. SPC 411111111.posted himself at the entrance of the holding
area of compound 10. SGT 111111151 began to call and order the detainees to move to
the front of the compound and into the holding area. The detainees start to move to the
holding area at a very slow and resistance pace. SGTallirn had a difficult time
getting the 651 detainees to cooperate in an orderly manner. SPC411/111, began to count
the detainees into the holding cell. Soon after, an additional MP showed up in front of the
compound to provide over-watch protection to the compound NCOs because they are in
the compound without weapons. There were close to 450 to 500 detainees in the holding
area when SGT claimed to not be able to see the other end of the holding area
because the fog was too thick. Close to 0200, SPCOMErvas completing his count and
getting close to the 625 on his count when he heard Non-Lethal rounds going off near the
other end of the holding area. The two compounds NCO quickly finished their count and
moving the detainees into the holding area to get control of the situation.
At approximately 0200, a roving MP guard form the far end of compound 11 spotted a
detainee jumping over the wire at the front of compound 10's holding area. The roving
MP shot the detainee as he cleared the wire. The detainee quickly got up and jumped

back over the wire into the holding area. Moments later, the QRF team (977 th th MP. Co) spotted 4 detainees running from the north side of compound 10. The and 267
QRF yelled halt then opened fire. The detainees split in tow direct and the QRF gave chase. All four were captured as the 977 th and 267th MP Co divided there forces and tracked down the detainees. All detainees were placed in the isolation cells in compound I 2.
Once it was discovered that 4 detainees were captured at the north side of compound 10, the SOG and SGM ordered a complete count of all detainees by ISN. The count was complete around 0500 ‘vhen it was discovered that two (2) detainees were unaccounted for. The BN CDR (now on site) ordered a complete search of the perimeter with all MP assets on camp. The exterior force (977 th and 267th MP Co) began to patrol and searches the surrounding area of Camp Bucca. The fog was extremely heavy and thick throughout the entire morning. The SOG and interior QRF conducted an inspection of the interior wire. It was discovered that the detainees escaped over the wire moments before the roving MP (from compound 11) shot the detainee jumping over the wire in the holding area of compound 10. The 267 th MP Co tracked the escaped detainees to the exterior limits of the general area. The British troops and chain of command were informed as photos of the detainees passed along.
Critical improvements and rehearsals are being conducted on the fog plan as preventable measure. This includes rehearsals, additional MPs for security, and accountability. One of the identifiable problems at the IF operations were the need better fortification of wire. The S-4 ordered and is overlooking the installation of a chain-link fence that is leaps and
bounds more secure then the current triple-stran wire. The fortification has been placed on top priority for KBR to complete.

QUESTION OF PARTIES INVOLVED:
NAME: SC11/1111111=P UNIT: 310th MP BN AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY: Compound NCO
Q: In your statement, you stated you vision of your assigned area was obstructed with fog? Can you observe the other end of the holding area?
A: No
Q: Did you consider placing yourself in such a location to observe the entire holding area?
A: We were consumed with the proper count. In addition, the detainees were fighting and being very uncooperative. Prior that day I observed detainees practicing jumping over wire/

Q: Did you report this to the SOG?
A: This is a common practice of detainees that the SOG is aware of. The current wire is not high or fortified enough to prevent detainees doing this in a split second. They can get through the triple-stran wire in a matter of seconds.

At approximately 2355hrs on the 12 January 2004 1 observed the fog coming in from the east. At that time SF oand I decided to initiate the fog plan. The first step was to inform the battalion TOC of the plan and also requested '',; ;I.u pport. We
IIIII rthen started with compound 09 then moved on to compounds 10,11,12 this was completed at 2400hrs.After we informed thecompound control teams. We informed the rovers and the tower guards. SFC4111111111Pand I positioned our self's at the corner ofcompound 09 by the holding area. At approximately 0005hrs the 267 QRF came by our location to inform us that were there and that they will cover the back road and the center road. A few minuets after that meeting SFCoalked to the compound 09 control tent to check on the progress of the detainees movement. Approximately 5 minuets la ran back tom
were armed by SPC
location and stated that there-was .something goingoon at compound 10. When we arrived there we weothat a detainee attempted to esca and when SPC shot at him he turned around and ran back to the wire and jumped overit back into compound 10. SPC also state at e decal ee cut his arms when he jumped back in. The trip flare wire hadbeen cut were the detainee came rou the wire SFC and stayed there to cover the hole. At approximately 0030hrs 1went to the compound control personal and asked the whereabouts of the NCOIC he informed me that he was in the compoundtents getting the detainees to come forward. I asked if the NCOIC had a radio or any type of commutation and he stated that be had none. I then asked for his head count he looked at his hand and stated that he was up to 640 detainees in the holding area. I thensent SFCampto go assist the NCOIC clear the tents and I went back to the vehicle. At that time I called for S3A (SGM
to come out to the internment facility to address this situation. By 0035 all the compounds had reported that were 100% in
se so ding areas. At that time I ordered the tower guards down and in to position around the ',y
in areas except for compound
10. When scm41111.parrived at my location we discussed the situation in compound SGM stated that there needs to be a 724th compound control person there at 10. But there was not one there SGMailift stated that he had in fact ordered one to be there with the 310th compound control team that night. Our conversation ended there and SGM /EPP went to look into it. Atapproximately 0055hrs SF od the compound control NCOIC came to the front I asked the NCOIC what the count washe stated that he had a couAllta
nsked if that was the number he was to have be stated yes. I then ordered the rest of my tower guards down and take up position around the holding area and shortly after that additional 822 personal arrived at the IF.SFC—and I called for SSGEmpa rover to meet us in front of compound 10 upon his arrival SFC411111111Pconf

vehicle for the guard behind the juveniles Sub compound and then we were the go to compound 09 and start our search of the tentarea. On the way there we heard radio traffic stating that detainees were out side the IF. That time we were in the back ofcompound 09. 1 ordered SSG 41111111Ro walk the wire and look for any si s of an escape SSG...? a rover arrived and I orderedhim to asset SSG ar. SFC and I went to inform SGM oadio traffic when we connected up with SGM

I went to investigate the marks and found that it was from the wire being moved from the guards earlier in the day. I then checked the wire behind all of the compounds, paying close attention to see that the sand had not been disturbed. At that time the rear of all occupied compounds was secure and undisturbed. I was then notified by the SOG that all compounds had a good head count and all prisoners were in the front holdin areas. All soldiers were then pulled out of towers to take up liner appropriate positions during the fog plan. I met with SFC and SFC
in the back side of the IF and we were headed to compound 9 to begin clearing tents. As we came around the South Easr corner of compound 9 we heard on the radio that there were shots fired. We stopped the vevicle and got outo listen for any other shots. We then heard a short burst from a SAW an heard on the radio that there were prisoners outside the wire and were being engaged. I then started walking west down the rear of compound to inspect the wire again. As I came to the middle of compound 10 I found that the sand had been disturbed and there were articles of clothing stuck in the wire. I then called the SOG on the radio to inform him of the possible escape point. I followed the foot prints from the outside of the wire across the rear road to the outside wire. The foot prints headed across the road and went west for apron. 15 meters. I then saw where the footprints went under the second row of wire and then under the final row of wire. There were articles of clothing stuck in the final row of wire. The final row of wire where the prisoners escaped was right at the end of the tripple strand razor wire where it met the tripple strand consertina wire. When the SOG showed up I showed him where I had found the clothing in both sets of wire.
