Emails discuss and include various news articles, one Reuters article is entitled: "US grants protection for anti-Tehran group in Iraq." The articles report that the United States gave 3,800 Iranian rebels at the Ashraf base in Iraq protected status; the status accords the detainees human rights protections consistent with the Geneva Conventions (e.g. allows detainees access to the Red Cross and the UNHCR, the U.N. refugee agency). Also included in the emails are talking/prep points.
