Emails between Army Colonel and Chief Warrant Officer re: Release of Prisoners from Camp Bucca

Aug. 10, 2003 | DOA | ACLU-RDI 1245
An Army Colonel emails a Chief Warrant Officer at Camp Bucca to establish a list of detainees that are eligible for release from custody. The email states "I have been checking for several days and many of these prisoners do not even have files here. With no paperwork to justify their detention, I am prepared to flush all of them (approximately 350) out of the system and order their release. I can not release anyone who is the subject of a CID Hold, and I was therefore wondering if you have a list of which people held at Bucca are being held there at the request of your agency." The CWO states that he has been working on such a list and attaches a list of potential detainees to be released.
