FBI Memo re: Activities of FBI Personnel at Abu Ghraib Prison

May 25, 2004 | FBI | ACLU-RDI 2983
This FBI memo concerns the activities of FBI personnel at Abu Ghraib prison from October 2003 to December 2003. The FBI conducted 15 interviews of military personnel, each being present at Abu Ghraib prison at some point during October 2003 & December 2003. Most persons interviewed said they were un-aware of abuse or misconduct. Descriptions of abuse include a detainee being “stripped naked, kept naked in his cell and subjected to sleep deprivation” and “roughed up” by the hands of American personnel who interviewed him. Another detainee said he saw a detainee spread eagle on a mattress on the floor and yelling and flailing. The memo is heavily redacted.
