This summarized statement of a female Sergeant, who served as an interrogator at Guantanamo between August 2002 and February 2003 on the Saudi Arabian Team. She states that she was aware that loud music; yelling; temp manipulation (using air conditioners) were being used, but never saw these techniques used. The sergeant says that all detainees got four (4) hours of un-interrupted sleep in a 24 hour cycle. She also provided information on a constant theme mentioned in other documents. The sergeant states that “The translator mentioned that a detainee could not pray if he were "unclean." She was then instructed to purchase some perfumed lotion and rub it on the detainee. “I only rubbed the detainee's arms” she said. She also addressed another issue concerning an alleged lap dance. This Sargent affirmatively states that she “Never” performed a lap dance on any detainee.
