Newly Obtained FBI Records Call Defense Department’s Methods "Torture," Express Concerns Over "Cover-Up" That May Leave FBI "Holding the Bag" for Abuses


Records Released in Response to Torture FOIA Request (released by the government 12/15/04, released by the ACLU 12/20/04)

12/05/03 12/15/04  Agency: FBI [Criminal Justice Information Services CJIS
“Of concern, DOD interrogators impersonating Supervisory Special Agents of the FBI told a detainee that REDACTED. These same interrogation teams then REDACTED. The detainee was also told by this interrogation team REDACTED. These tactics have produced no intelligence of a threat neutralization nature to date and CITF believes that techniques have destroyed any chance of prosecuting this detainee. If this detainee is ever released or his story made public in any way, DOD interrogators will not be held accountable because these torture techniques were done the “FBI” interrogators. The FBI will be left holding the bag before the public.”

“We met with the medical staff re the detainees and the interview process. They gave us an insight into the outpatient clinic and the fleet hospital. They were very agreeable to working directly with the interviewers and the MP’s on getting treatment to the detainees.”

“Attached are some documents that may be of interest to Spike Bowman who I understand is reviewing legal aspects of interviews here in GTMO. They were provided to me by one of the JAG lawyers working at CITF. One of these is a review of interrogation methods by a DOD lawyer. Basically, it appears that the lawyer worked hard to write a legal justification for the type of interviews they (the Army) want to conduct here.”

“After we got off the phone, I found the attached E-mail which we sent to General Miller last year. Also, there is a copy of the military’s use of approved coercive techniques which are quite different I am sure from the Bureau guidelines you are preparing.”

“In late 2002 and continuing into mid-2003, the Behavioral Analysis Unit raised concerns over interrogation tactics being employed by the U.S. military. As a result an EC dated 5/30/03, was generated summarizing the FBI’s continued objections to the use of REDACTED techniques to interrogate prisoners. This EC is attached and includes a collection of military documents discussing and authorizing the techniques. We are not aware of the FBI participating directly in any REDACTED interrogations.

“Be advised, we have already experienced what I would describe as an unfavorable contact with the EDVA regarding WFO’s failure to more aggressively address pending allegations. Specifically, AUSA Rod Spencer, USAO-EDVA, has already berated an agent and I literally have a message on my desk to call him regarding these cases. . . .[T]here will soon come a time when WFO will no longer be able to hold the EDVA off on these matters before DOJ starts calling you. It would be of great benefit if HQ could run a little interference with DOJ. Less pressure on the EDVA would equate to less pressure on WFO.”
