Emails between General Higgins and Others re: Military Police Training to Handle Detainees

May 15, 2004 | DOA | ACLU-RDI 939

This email is a request for guidance in training and equipping the Army’s 2nd Brigade with detainee operations. One of the Generals on the email chain states “Let's not get confused with running "prison" operations and infantryman on the ground capturing enemy soldiers and insurgents.” “My charter is to get them first class training and we'll do that when LTC determines the requirements. What we don't need is everyone guessing and wasting time and resources”.
