REDACTED stated it was the interrogators he wanted to specifically single out as violators of any regulations regarding the Qur'an. For this he stated he had a specific message which he wished to pass to all interrogators. The us of the Qur'an as a weapon against detainees, REDACTED stated, had failed. Interrogators who had taken the Qur'an from individual detainees as a reprisal or as an incentive for cooperation had failed to sway the brothers and would continue to fail.

REDACTED was asked if he had ever seen the Qur'an mistreated or intentionally mishandled. He had not. REDACTED was asked if he had ever seen the Qur'an thrown around, tossed on the ground or mistreated in any way. He had not . . . . REDACTED was informed that his case for the proper treatment of the Qur'an had been taken to higher levels and presented as a serious issue. The effort had been hurt, however, because it had been found that detainees were hiding things within the pages of the Qur'an.

REDACTED indicated that many detainees are very angry about these brothers who were forced to shave their beards, and consider it as an attack on their religion. He said that other actions by camp guards have also angered the detainees, such as some guards making fun of them while they are praying and having their Qurans taken away as punishment for breaking rules.
