Interviewee was assigned to AG as an Assistant with the 325th Military Intelligence Brigade. Stated: "There was an extraordinary amount of pressure from the chain of command to get results. . . . They would raid a house and take everyone. They refused to let anyone go due to the fear that the wrong guy might be let loose or they felt that they would simply be gathering this same individual the next day." Interviewee recalled overhearing officers talk about Sanchez saying, in response to the capture of a number of Iraqis during a raid, something to the effect of 'Why are we detaining these people, we should be killing them.'
