July 6, 2004 | DOA | ACLU-RDI 2538
Sworn statement of Chief Warrant Officer 3 discusses interrogation and detention conditions and practices. "Titan employees don't interrogate?they translate. Interrogators are all military or FBI." Mentions food provided to detainees and changing practices regarding hooding and blindfolds. Refers to an interrogation in which "the reason the guy talked to me was because he had some cuts on his leg, and I put some iodine on his wounds.... Being nice is the best thing you could do." Further states, "There's no reason to put new Jihadists on the street, so that's our policy." States, "A detainee generally doesn't get screamed at worse than a basic training recruit. I am not aware of any physical abuse that has occurred here.... Stress positions are not authorized. Our interrogation techniques are conversation, aggressive conversation."
