July 24, 2002 | CIA | ACLU-RDI 4560

A draft psychological assessment of Abu Zubaydah faxed to John Yoo from the CIA.  The assessment provides background information ("for at least a decade, subject has lived and worked within an environment that has condoned, nurtured, intensified, and rewarded his radical beliefs"), and notes on his personality, "emotional/mental status/coping skills," "future worldview," motivations, primary strengths, and detention/interrogation. [OLC Vaughn Index #4]
