Also heard that "the guards would bring the dogs down to the cells and use them to scare the detainees.

I gave him examples of approached including Pride and Ego Down where an interrogator took a Koran, threw it on the floor and stepped on it and Fear Up harsh where the interrogator had a a dog trained to bark on cue if the interrogator thought the detainee was lying.

I also described what I thought was a formal, professional prisoner in-processing as I observed it in Bagram."

"I believed that MI should not become involved in detainee or prison operations . . . The FRAGO generated tension between MIs and MPs." "We had used 'sleep adjustment' and 'stress positions' as effective techniques in Afghanistan. Although I never saw written authorization, the techniques had SJA and CJTF-180 C-2X/C2 review and approval on a case by case basis. . . . I concluded they would be effective tools for interrogation operations at AG. . . . Because the winds of war were changing and the mounting pressure from higher for 'actionable intelligence' from interrogation operations, I requested more options than FM 34-52 provided. REDACTED acquired a copy of TF-121 IROE and essentially 'plagiarized,' it . . . and then submitted the IROE . . . for approval." Records IROEs dated 10 Sep 03 and 14 Sep. 03, and states that "I created a slide which sythesized the 15 September IROE and posted the IROE in numerous locations throughout the working area as a constant reminder.

Techniques outside of the FM were placed in a second column which I titled 'OIC approval required prior to use.' . . . The third column was titled 'CG's approval required for use on EPWs.

We have never used the dogs for interrogations at GTMO and I did not discuss this with [Abu Ghraib officers] because I did not have this concept." "As for removal of clothing we had received SecDef authority to use the removal of clothing as a technique for about a six-week period between Dec 02 to Jan 03 but that was never done at GTMO. I did not elect to use that technique. That was rescinded."
DOD 000642 - 000644 Sworn Statement of Col, OSJA, MNF-I (senior Legal Advisor to LTG Sanchez); Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 6/18/2004 Notes with respect to interrogations that "we didn't begin to formulate a CJTF-7 command policy until after MG Miller's visit. . . . I believe that MG Miller's visit was the genesis for the development and drafting of the CJTF-7 interrogation and counter-resistance policy. . . .We used the DOD cover memorandum [pertaining to GTMO] and modified it as our own. We saw the A/519th document and used it, along with other comparative sources, to develop the CJTF-7 command policy." Describes chronology of interrogation policies, including 14 Sep 2003 and 12 Oct policies, working of Release Board, procedures for ICRC visits and reports.

DOD 000695 - 000702 Sworn Statement of SPC, 38th MP CID, Camp Victory; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 6/4/2004 Notes, I "was invited…to witness the punishment of three (3) detainees suspected of raping/sexually accosting another male detainee in Camp Vigilant B." Incident took place in "the isolation body," where there were a "civilian interpreter" and an "SPC...shouting into a dark room, dubbed as the hole. [He] shouted profanities and insults to (3) three naked detainees," who "were brought out and instructed to crawl on their stomachs and crawl dragging their genitals on the floor. They were told to roll left and right. [REDACTED] would sprinkle/pour water as the detainees rolled. He then grabbed a football, climbed to the second tier and pelted the detainees below. Below the detainees were handcuffed together in a way to mimic homosexual relations. [REDACTED] asked for a confession, promising to stop this punishment if the detainees confessed. Using their feet, the MPs shoved the detainees' hips to further mimic sexual relations. The instructions/requests were aided in full by the interpreter...One of the detainees began to bleed from his knee." Notes that "the next day I tell [REDACTED] about the incident," who then tells him that "the issue is never pursued higher through the MP Chain of Command." Notes that he "was invited for entertainment, to enjoy the show of force against detainees." Also notes that "with the proper authorization, special interest detainees were transferred to the 'breaker' team. The dogs were used to scare the detainees into confessing or providing intelligence." Notes that "Col. Pappas was aware of the use of dogs, but I don't know if he was the final authority." "I was told the dogs were used to bark and growl at detainees to induce a collection of intelligence or confession." "Detainees were kept naked to 'humble them.' This was a practice instituted by MPs. Later, the MI Command forbade the use of the practice."

DOD 000711 - 000712 Sworn Statement of CACI (CIV) interrogator, Camp Victory; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/6/2004 Notes, "I did see the use of dogs during interrogations…I know one needed the approval by LTG SANCHEZ before using dogs…I did use the dogs once or twice but I submitted a request through [REDACTED] who gave it to [REDACTED] then it went to COL PAPPAS and was approved by LTG SANCHEZ." Also, "I do recall a time when detainees were wearing female underwear." Saw "photos of naked detainees hunched up together."
DOD 000713 - 000714 Sworn Statement of detainee, Abu Ghraib; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report Not Given Detainee was "transferred to the Abu Ghraib facility on 27 December 2003." Stayed "in the hard site and for 55 days no one came to see [him]." Before Abu Ghraib, at Ruthwania Palace, where "for four days, I was not allowed to sleep. I was forced to kneel down on gravel and I had a bag over my head so I couldn't tell who was doing this."
DOD 000715 - 000716 Sworn Statement of detainee, Abu Ghraib; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 6/13/2004 Detainee "was transferred to the Abu Ghraib facility on or around 17 December 2003. When I arrived, I was handcuffed and had a sandbag over my head." Notes, "the treatment at Abu Ghraib was not bad and I was never hit in Abu Ghraib. The bad treatment began from the time I was captured until I arrived at Abu Ghraib." Notes, however, that "one time at Abu Ghraib, I was made to walk without shoes over rocks from my cell to another place and I had my hands tied behind me. Another time I had my hands tied behind my back and the person would run with me and hit my head against the wall....Another time in the bathroom, he hit me on my head and while another guy (I don't know who) held my hands...I was made to take a cold shower with my suit while my hands were tied. I was tied to a window."

DOD 000719 - 000725 Sworn Statement of [UNREADABLE]; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report Unreadable Notes, "Around 6 or 7 October 2003, I learned that three interrogators and a translator went in Tier 1B to interrogate two female detainees and possibly had been drinking alcohol." "I learned that the interrogators and one civilian linguist had the MPs release a female juvenile detainee (17) under the guise of an interrogation and moved her to an isolated cell area and purportedly asked her to remove her top and kissed her." Was told "that an interrogator and an analyst had a detainee disrobe during an interrogation one evening and walked back to his area." Notes, "OGA and TF-121 routinely brought in detainees for a short period of time. The A/519th soldiers initiated the term 'ghost.' They stated they used this term as the detainees were not inprocessed in the normal way via the MP database and were not yet categorized. It was difficult to track these particular detainees and I and other officers recommended that a Memorandum of Understanding be written up between OGA, the 205th MI BDE and the 800th MP BDE to establish procedures for a ghost detainee. [REDACTED] suggested an idea of processing them under an assumed name and fingerprinting them but COL PAPPAS decided against it.
DOD 000726 - 000729 Sworn Statement of Deputy CJ2, CJTF-7; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report xx Did not see abuse, but notes, "in reference to Ghost detainees, OGA would bring in detainees for a short period of time. [REDACTED] brought them in. These particular ghost detainees were not yet categorized and OGA was working on that. It was very difficult keeping track of these OGA because they were not processed until OGA decided to turn them over to us. COL PAPPAS was not happy with that procedure. [REDACTED] recommended that a Memorandum of Understanding be written up between OGA and MI on the procedures to drop off a ghost detainee. COL PAPPAS met with OGA and TF-121 and the memorandum on procedures for dropping ghost detainees was signed."
DOD 000730 - 000731 Sworn Statement of SGT, 372nd MP, Camp Victory; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/7/2004 Notes, "as far as clothing for detainees, at times all we had were women's underwear…Some of the detainees refused to wear women's underwear and we told them that was all we had. Some refused to put them on and chose to be naked." "We began shaving detainees heads because of a couple of lice problems we had." Also, "ghost detainees were detainees who were brought to our facility by Other Government Agencies (OGA). They were not part of our count or given an ISN. I still included them in my numbers but they didn't exist. They were kept in isolation cell to prevent them from being identified by someone else. There were some who appeared to have been beaten when they were dropped off by OGA." "Some of the detainees in isolation were kept there longer than 30 days and we would request from MI their status but we were not given one."

DOD 000736 - 000737 Sworn Statement of SGT, 66th MI, Darmstadt, Germany; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/23/2004 "After reading about and seeing pictures of some of the incidents of possible detainee abuse on the internet I want to some recollections of matters I observed while assigned at Abu Ghraib." Recollections include: "I observed a detainee hooded and handcuffed to a railing." Regarding an interrogation following a shooting, "the dogs were being used at the time as well. There was one cell the dog went into. The dogs barked but was not close enough to hurt the detainee...The dogs were authorized before but by this time, any approval had to go through LTG Sanchez. During this particular incident, there was a sense of urgency to conduct simultaneous interrogations of the police that had been identified as being involved and word circulated around that LTG Sanchez had given blanket approval for somewhat harsher interrogation methods for the police interrogations. (I did not see any written blanket approval and do not remember any one individual specifically telling me that we had a blanket approval–it was just accepted by all of us." Reports of a MP pouring a bucket of water on a detainee to keep him from sleeping." Reports seeing an MP "put his hands over the nose and mouth of the policeman, cutting off his air flow and not allowing him to breathe...At another point, [he] used his collapsible nightstick to push and possibly twist the policeman's arm causing some pain." Notes that "it was commonly understood that LTG Sanchez had given blanket approval for somewhat harsher interrogation methods (not specified) for use against the Iraqi police as a result of the shooting incident." Reports on an incident in which "the detainee was in an isolation cell and one or two MPs and a male dog handler with a leashed but unmuzzled dog outside the cell. The detainee was handcuffed to the cell door on the inside and the dog was allowed to jump up at the door and bark and snarl. The dog was on the leash at all times and was not allowed to get close enough to bite the detainee. I did not report this because it did not seem to be abuse."

DOD 000738 - 000739 Sworn Statement of SGT, 66th MI; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 4/27/2004 Notes, "I did see one instance where a military dog was used in the Hard Site. An Iraqi police had managed to provide a detainee in the hard site with a pistol. An interrogation was on going and the detainee was not cooperative and the dogs were used. The dog was in the cell with the detainee...This happened in December. I found out a detainee had been bitten the same night. This technique had to be approved by higher command and I was told this had been approved (the use of a dog). When we wanted to deviate from the approved IROEs we had to send a detail plan and get it approved by LTG Sanchez."
DOD 000740 - 000741 Sworn Statement of ISG, 72nd MP, 992 Troop; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 6/6/2004 "I have seen the pictures and cannot undersand how it could happen. The actions depicted by the photos clearly fall outside the doctrinally authorized restraining techniques. MP training calls for the restraint (with handcuffs) and the segregation of unruly detainees. It seemed to me that MI was under constant pressure to report."

The detainee was hand-cuffed, leg-shackled, and had a sandbag over his head." Reports, "I was in Cell Block 1B of the hard site, which was the area of the hard site dedicated to female and juvenile detainees...I witnessed an MP guard and an MP Working Dog Handler with his dog entered 1B...The dog was a large, black, breed which appeared to be a mix of Labrador Retriever and Belgian Sheppard...The dog was on a leash, but not muzzled. The MP guard and MP Dog Handler opened a cell in which two juveniles...were housed. The Dog Handler allowed the dog to enter the cell and go nuts on the kids, barking and scaring them. The kids were screaming, the smaller one hiding behind [REDACTED]. The Handler allowed the dog to get within about one foot of the kids. Afterward, I heard the Dog Handler say that he had a competition with another Handler to see if they could scare detainees to the point that they would defecate. He mentioned that they had already made some urinate, so they appeared to be raising the competition." Notes, "I was told by [REDACTED] from the GTMO Team that I was permitted as the interrogator to strip a detainee completely naked in the interrogation booth, although I never used this technique personally." "[REDACTED] also told me that I could use working dogs and said that he had used them previously, although he was unclear if he had used them at GTMO or AG." "I did see some detainees in women's underwear, but this appeared to be by their choice, not as punishment or harassment." "I had few dealings with OGA and do not know the term 'ghost detainee.' I know that there are OGA detainees that were off limits for Army interrogators and that some OGA detainees have waited for months for OGA interrogators to see them, violating the 30 isolation limit rule. On only one occasion I recommended a detainee for an extension past the 30 days...It was reported to me by [REDACTED] that he had been bitten by police dogs while his cell was being searched. I went to check on [REDACTED} and saw that he had bites on his thighs. When I asked [REDACTED] what had happened he said that the dog bit him, started to cry, and asked to be sent back to Iran."
D0D 000747 - 000748 Sworn Statement of SGT, B/CO, 470 MI; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/18/2004 Reports, "the GTMO SGT took us on a tour of the facility. While in the Hard Site, we saw the MPs had two detainees in the middle of the cell. They were naked with a bag over their head, standing on MRE boxes and their hand spread out each holding a bottle in each hand. I asked if this was right. I was told by the GTMO (NCO) that this was the MPs way of disciplining detainees and that it was normal." "I saw dogs being used a few times...From my understanding, they would always have prior approval to use the dogs." Reports hearing that "the MPs had several detainees naked on the floor and a nerf ball was being thrown at the detainees." Reports that MPs "made [a detainee] smoke the entire pack [of cigarettes] within 30 minutes while he did PT."

Recalls ghost detainee, recalling that "OGA chained a detainee up in the shower area and the detainee ended up dying...told him that I had a problem with what OGA did to this Detainee and that what happened could come back and get us in trouble." Describes appeals to REDACTED and explanation that "OGA had their own rules." Recalls sleep deprivation, dietary adjustment, stress positions, removal of clothing. "The request [to remove clothing] was forward[ed] to REDACTED and it was approved. I oversaw...and after a couple of minutes, I told them to stop..." Notes that "detainee was placed in pink silky women's underwear...for something he did wrong." Observed use of dogs: "the dog almost bit me." Observed detainee "force fed with an IV". Observed unauthorized photographing of detainees and retells reprimanding techniques like clothing removal.

DOD 000756 - 000757 Sworn Statement of CIV, CACI, Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 4/27/2004 States that did not witness abuse of detainees. SPC was, however, aware of "ghost detainees . . . brought in by OGA, " who were "not accounted for or kept tracked of."
DOD 000758 - 000759 Sworn Statement of SPC, 98JAnnex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/11/2004 Witnessed, "the use of sandbags over the detainee[']s head."

DOD 000760 - 000762 Sworn Statement of E6, JIDC, Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/24/2004 Notes that "certain procedures, especially sleep deprivation, had to be approved by LTG Sanchez." Remembers sleep deprivation technique "being developed as I was leaving GTMO." Observed barking dogs "being used for an interrogation." Received an approval to "use sleep management and to use the MP dogs but did not employ either..." Notes, "One detainee in an unrecalled block...was handcuffed to the cell bar." As punishment, "REDACTED said...the detainee would 'have a new look' - the next morning his head was shaved." Explains a claim that a "high value" detainee had "had cold water thrown on him...and had been beaten and hit in his mouth." Claims detainee was quoted in London Times. Red Cross visit: "One of the results of the Red Cross visit was a stipulation that all detainees had to be dressed in orange jumpsuits. REDACTED made a comment that it did not stipulate how much of a jump suit so he reportedly cut off the sleeves and legs and made it into two pieces for the detainee to wear." This practice was used by "REDACTED [who] was working a 'special project' and reported directly to COL Pappas." Saw photos taken and ordered them deleted. "On one occasion REDACTED was walking a detainee from his cell and I was escorting them. REDACTED had hooded and cuffed him and turned him around to walk down the stairs. The detainee lost his balance and fell."
DOD 000763 - 000765 Sworn Statement of LTC, C2, Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/14/2004 "At Cropper, myself and some other senior interrogators sat down to discuss the possibility of integrating civilian contractors (former interrogators and screeners) into the operation." Describes the review process for civilian contractors and the few individuals who made the hiring decisions. "I do not know if CACI actually conducted interviews with those meeting the requirements...(I do not know what the specific training they actually received was but would assume the Geneva Convention was covered as a general topic.)" "I only know of one individual fired due to her questionable suitability...she made innapropriate sexual comments." Generally describes visits to Abu Ghraib and leadership: "Conditions were very austere, with seeminly lax security/standards...REDACTED represented himself as running interrogation operations and we all understood that was his role while at Abu Ghraib. At some point (around DEC 04) COL PAPPAS made it known that he was not comfortable with REDACTED and I helped facilitate the move from Abu Ghraib to job within the C2."

Describers his/her role in contracting and its oversight. Explains lack of "formal system to monitor their performance" as "one of our biggest mistakes." Was "aware of only two problems throughout the contractor force..." for vague breaches like use of alcohol or "duty performance issues". Describes contractors' desire to carry an "individual weapon for personal protection". Notes tension between REDACTED and Pappas. Notes that "there did appear to be confusion with the MP [chain of command] relationship." Explains possibility that "REDACTED...initially hired as a screener...[was] used as an interrogator..." saying the decision would have been "made internally at Abu Ghraib." When asked if "strategic level interrogators...[are] military or civilian" replied, "Military I think, at least predominantly." Describes presence of civilians at other levels.

The MI person hit the male in the back of the head with a closed fist…the suspect was handcuffed, on his knees and a towel wrapped around his head. The MI soldier kept yelling eyes down, get up while knocking the suspect back down and repeated verbal abuse towards the suspect. [A second] MI soldier put an arm lock around the suspects' neck pulling the suspect from the ground. While pulling the suspect from the ground by the neck, the MI soldier was twisting left and right yelling at the suspect while the first MI soldier struck the suspect in the mid section of the stomach. REDACTED (IRF Commander) approached the soldiers and asked if this treatment was necessary...REDACTED stated to the MI soldiers that this behavior is not necessary. The MI soldiers ignored the LT and continued to verbally abuse the suspect and drag the subject off by the neck. The LT approached REDACTED and asked the Major if he was going to let this continue. The Major said nothing." Describes use of dogs in a search, notes "dragging an inmate by a chocking...[illegible]". Observed a "CPT striking [a] detainee": "I observed this CPT with a cho[ke] hold on a detainee. He was dragging the detainee to the shower room on the lower level...[the CPT] kicked several times in the mid section. The detainee was screaming...the CPT stated "you like hurting my soldiers".

Reiterates the sandbag over the head and the beating. Also notes: "I observed that the prisoners at the compounds were receiving punishment in the way of being forced to kneel on gravel until their knees were bleeding.

"Vaguely recall that OGA had expressed a interest in placing some of their detainees in Cropper without being in-processed." States that received ICRC briefing re Abu Ghraib: a few detainees "appeared to have psychological problems", detainees alleged they had been: "hand-cuffed to their cell doors while they were naked"; made to wear underwear on their heads, including female underwear; subjected to "sleep deprivation". Recalls statement by MG Miller that MPs should help "set the conditions for successful interrogations" by having the HVDs moved only in five-point restraints.

Required that specific approval had to be obtained for "certain more aggressive interrogation techniques." Interrogation plan and approaches were not maintained in database. After change in command to Pappas in late Oct/early Nov 2003 and visit by Sanchez, more pressure to produce reports and tendency by officers to micromanage interrogations. "Guard dogs were used, unmuzzled but leashed along with loud music, as an intimidation means during detainee inprocessing in Afghanistan."

MP sergeant was talking to OGA member who was giving him advice on how to humiliate the detainee "by having me observe him naked." The other incident involved unauthorized interrogation of 2 females by 3 MI soldiers. "Clothing removal and making them wear burlap bags over their heads were acceptable MP methods to control or modify behavior when isolation or pressure ... didn't work... I observed more detainees without clothing in 1A than any other place in the camp."

"After he moved to AG permanently in the Oct-Nov 03 timeframe, I did not have any doubt that Col Pappas was in charge of AG."

Was told about incident in Jul 03 where Camp Bucca prisoner was struck to ground by MP.
DOD 843-844 Sworn statement of interrogator, A Company, 519th MI Bn; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 6/2/2004 Initial mission replaced by "special" missions, incl. Operation McClellan 1,2,3. "I did see naked detainees in the facility. I was brought naked detainees on occasion to interrogate…I witnessed detainees wearing women's underwear... I was aware of the [redacted] incident involving her walking a naked detainee around the facility." "In Sep 03 I was supposed to sit in on an interrogation with an OGA member... a sheet was placed over the opting of the interrogation booth which prohibited anyone seeing inside." During the interrogation he heard something hit the table. Another time, interrogated high level detainee in whom Pappas and Fast showed "intense interest": "I felt Col Pappas would approve any interrogation procedure I requested to facilitate the interrogation." In Dec 03 Col Pappas approved an "adjusted sleep schedule" as an interrogation technique. Dog was brought into detainee's cell and ripped his bedding apart.
DOD 845-846 Sworn statement of Mobile Training Team member; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 6/9/2004 Came from US Army Intelligence Center and School to train interrogators and analysts (lists courses).

DOD 847-854 Statement of person in 1st Armored Division Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, who was attached to 205th MI Brigade; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report xx Describes development of interrogation policy, IROE. Iraq interrogation polciy "utilized Guantanamo Bay interrogation as a template, but was changed substantially to reflect the fact that Geneva Convention protections applied to detainees in Iraq." It was signed by Gen Sanchez. [Redacted] drafted the "IROE slide" while waiting for the policy to be approved. She said it accepted the FM 34-52 approaches on the left, and some approaches not in FM 34-52 on the right. Those needed approval from the CJTF-7 CG. Some of the approaches were later disallowed altogether. The final CENTCOM IROE was signed on 10/12/04. The issue of "stress positions" was debated intensely. Describes process for approval of extension "segregation requests" beyond the allowed 30 days. Sanchez signed off the final authorization (Pappas signed off on the way up to Sanchez). During initial drafting of interrogation policy, use of dogs was included in IROE. Sep14 version said Sanchez had to approve use of dogs during interrogation. "I never told Col Pappas that the authority to approve the use of dogs had been delegated to his level." Re sleep management, anything less than 4 hours of sleep per night for the first 72 hours would have to be approved by higher. Soldier at AG expressed anger that ICRC thought they could just go "anywhere/everywhere." Aware of one allegation of sexual abuse where 3 interrogators and interpreter conducted unauthorized interrogation on two female detainees, asked one to take top off - CID investigation inconclusive.

DOD 859-862 Sworn statement of Individual Augmentee, B/470th MI group, assigned to Detainee Assessment Board (DAB) ; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/18/2004 At Abu Ghraib, "there was no oversight of most of the interrogations being conducted as everyone was very busy…" "Many of the interrogators… were young, inexperienced… did not know what to do so they reverted to throwing things, in other words, harsh approaches. After they didn't get what they wanted, they could send the dtainee to isolation for thirty days or more as long as they wrote the right memo.... The memos were being approved by Col Pappas... no one was checking to ensure the recommendations were sound." Began developing SOP based on GTMO. "I owould say that the DAB identified about 85% to 90% of detainees were of either no intelligence value or were of value but innocent and therefore should not have remaiined in captivity." Several individuals reported mistreatment: drunk MPs took detainees to Hard Site, tied them up, blindfolded them, placed them in a circle and beat them up. Another detainee stripped naked, made to stand on box with arms spread out and bag over head while he was hit on his legs by the MP. Another detainee was abused on capture - MP threw him to ground, poured dirt on him - he tried to tell them he was diabetic, then he went into diabetic shock. Detainees were often stripped. Some interrogators would insult the detainee's religion and family to humiliate them. OGA detainees weren't processed and we couldn't talk to them. Female linguist was asked to humiliate detainees by making comments as to their manhood and genital size. Various reports were made of "interrogators, linguists and civilians treading gray line between harsh interrogation and violation of the Geneva Conventions" but no importance was placed on them until the CID investigation. Innocent people detained for long periods because nobody wanted to take responsibility for releasing them and insufficient training. "This resulted in the glutting of Abu Ghraib, a facility which [should not have been housing] innocent individuals who should never have been taken from their homes, much less gone through two or three different interrogation facilities." "we received a training class by a linguist who taught us what type of words to use to humiliate the detainees." Explains what checks and balances should have been put in place.

DOD 867-871 Sworn statement of CW2, A/519th MI Bn; Annex to Fay/Jones/Kern Report 5/19/2004 Tasked with setting and managing Interrogation Operations at AG. BDE and C2 began asking for actual interrogation notes ("not intended to be reports to be forwarded") - C2 and Sanchez had been receiving these types of reports from other units (TF121 and poss. 1AD) and "wanted same from us". "By mid-October we started the process of "cleaning up" (sanitizing them for release in a way that would shield the interrogation teams as much as we could) the interrogator notes." Critisizes organization of interrogation , esp. at higher levels - "amateurish". "It seemed that the maneuver units gaive very broad intstructions to round up any male from 16-60 years of age that had a cell phone... In my opinion less than 10% of the detainees had any real intelligence value. We told MG Miller, MG Fast, LTG Sanchez and COL Pappas..." "OGA [redacted] had what we refer to as ghost detainees that were "buried" or hidden in our facility." OGA started bringing their own detainees to 1A of the "hard site"... we explained... that "OGA 'does not play well with others', they did not live the same rules as we did... they did not seem to have full accountability for their detainees... We were overruled...[redacted] seemed to have an affinity for OGA and special ops". "Shortly after... 11 December 2003, I heard that [redacted] ghosts died during an interrogation." "I am aware of two occasions where unscheduled interrogations by unqualified personnel were conducted... The first was ... directed by BG Fast... to go in and interrogate using the fear up approach immediately... against the advice of [redacted]... knowing the detainee had just ended a 72-hour adjusted sleep schedule... The detainee collapsed during questioning." The second involved 'tasking' a father with gathering information so he could see his detainee daugher."Col Pappas was aware of these interrogations." Notes use of guard dog during interrogations approved by Col Pappas. Under heading "abuses", describes incident in late Sep/early Oct had "incident" with alcohol and unauthorized interrogation of female detainee. Another incident before Dec 11 involved female soldier making "detainee strip and return to his holding area naked."

He then dragged the detainee into the interrogation booth. The entire time the detainee had his hands cuffed. As the detainee tried to get up on his knees [redacted] would yank him very hard and make him fall again... The CID agent was not concern about my report." "If you saw something and reported it, it was your word against theirs. The discipline was a slap on the hand... There were stories before I even got there that some of the incident occurred in front of higher rank and nothing was said. The place was loosely run and interrogators had free reign for intrerrogations... I sat in on an interrogation with [redacted] where a detainee told him that a dog had bitten him on the leg... Some of the detainees in the isolation cell did not wear clothes because they were mentally unstable... I saw a pair of women's underwear in one of the detainees cell"
