This document is the CIA's copy of one of many sworn statements regarding the interrogation and subsequent death of Iraqi Major General Abed Mowhoush. This statement is also included in CID Report 0027-03-CID679-64999 released by the DOD. The CIA version contains different redactions than the DOD version. The interviewee, whose name is redacted, describes the beating of Mowhoush by his interrogators, stating that he was beaten and slapped in the face, midsection and thighs for about 5-10 minutes. After the beating, Mowhoush fell to the ground and was struck by a hose. When asked why the interrogators felt the need to beat Mowhoush, the interviewee responds that "he was giving them the wrong answers."
