DODDOACID011770 DODDOACID011770-013418 CID CID Report of Investigation 11/30/02-12/10/02 11/26/2008 11/5/2008 Bagram Control Point, Bagram, Afghanistan Investigation into the deaths of two detainees at the Bagram Control Point (“BCP”) in Bagram, Afghanistan. Both detainees were determined to have been killed by blood clots that were dislodged and travelled to their hearts, causing pulmonary embolism. The blood clots, and their subsequent dislodging, were caused by sustained standing chained in place, as well as by sleep deprivation and dozens of beatings by guards and possibly interrogators. The investigation reveals systems of torture perpetrated by Military Intelligence and the Military Police guards at the BCP, as well as allegations of torture at joint American-Afghani prisons in Kabul, and maltreatment at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The torture at BCP takes many forms, including beatings, sleep deprivation, being chained standing to a fixed object for periods exceeding 24 hours, allegations of sexual torture and humiliation, allegations of the use of dogs both to degrade and frighten the detainees, and degradation through the forced performance of emasculating and disgusting tasks, such as the forcing of a detainee to pick plastic bottle caps out of a latrine can filled with feces.
DODDOACID013419 DODDOACID013419-013959 CID CID Report dated Nov 27, 2006 6/13/2003 11/27/2006 11/5/2008 Baghdad International Airport (BIAP), This report investigates alleged the Homicide or Involuntary Manslaughter of a detainee, Dilar Dababa, by U.S. Forces. On the evening of June 12, 2003, Dababa was captured by Coalition Forces and transported to BIAP. Throughout the night, soldiers forced him to do "physical training": he was made to kneel down and stand up repeatedly, lie down and standup, and hold a box above his head while lying down that he dropped on his face and torso when his arms tired. After training, a soldier constructed a stinkbomb using a Meal Ready to Eat heater, tabasco sauce, and water, and placed it in Dababa's cell. The stinkbomb caused respiratory agitation and coughing. In the morning of June 13, 2003, Dababa attempted to escape, during which two soldiers subdued him using "necessary force." One soldier punched Dababa above the left eye which caused a laceration about 2.5 cm wide that required sutures. After medical examination, he had no indications of serious injury. That evening, Dababa was found dead lying on the ground in his cell. An autopsy revealed that he died of a closed head injury that caused hemorrhaging within the brain. There was insufficient evidence to prove or disprove that soldiers committed Homicide or Involuntary Manslaughter; however, the investigation established probable cause that the guard, who made the stink bomb, committed Dereliction of Duty and Cruelty and Maltreatment.
DODDOACID013960 DODDOACID013960-014079 CID CID Report of Investigation 5/12/04 - 6/8/04 9/15/2005 11/5/2008 Special Operations Force Compound in Mosul Airfield, AKA: "The Disco", Mosul, Iraq This report investigates alleged aggravated assault, cruelty, and maltreatment of an Iraqi prisoner by U.S. forces. He states that he was held at the Disco for approximately one month, during which he was abused “almost continuously” (13967). The abuse consisted of several methods: 1) filling his jumpsuit with ice, then hosing him down and making him stand for long periods of time, sometimes in front of an air conditioner; 2) forcing him to lay down and drink water until he gagged, vomited or choked, 3) having his head banged against a hot steel plate while hooded and interrogated; 4) being forced to do leg lifts with bags of ice placed on his ankles, and being kicked when he could not do more. The detainee also alleges that stones were thrown at him and that he was hit by a translator. The 48th Military Police Detachment and 3rd Military Policy Group(CID) began investigating the allegations on August 8, 2004, and upon finding that the Navy ran and supervised The Disco, turned jurisdiction of the investigation over to Naval Criminal Investigative Service on September 15, 2005. There is no conclusion or recommended conclusion in this report.

Included in the file is the testimony of detainee victims and members of the 372nd MP who perpetrated and/or witnessed abuse. The investigation established probable cause to believe that members of the 372nd MP were implicated in offenses such as Assault, Indecent Acts, Dereliction of Duty, Cruelty and Maltreatment, Conspiracy, Obstruction of Justice, Sexual Abuse and False Official Statement. In the cases of only two individuals did CID agents fail to establish probable cause after investigating the allegations against them. Photographic evidence of these abuses is discussed at length, but not included in the file.
