Schmidt-Furlow Report Enclosure 25: Summarized Witness Statement

Mar. 23, 2005 | DOA | SOUTHCOM | ACLU-RDI 2347
Summarized witness statement of a Second Lieutenant stationed at Guantanamo between February and November 2003. When asked about various allegations of abuse, the 2LT states that they had no personal knowledge of abuse or the specific allegations in question. However, the 2LT states that they did hear, while at Fort Huachuca "Tiger Team University” for interrogators, that certain interrogation techniques were employed. One such episode involved a female interrogator who reportedly touched a detainee on the shoulder and knee, then leaned in close to the detainee's face, and whispered comments or questions in his ear. Also the use of load music and yelling at detainees as a "Fear Up Harsh" approach were standard techniques. The interview summary is incomplete and it is apparent that additional pages exist.
