Document: DOD impersonating FBI, using "torture techniques"

This document forms part of the documentation released on 15 December 2004 by various US Government Departments in response to an FOIA court order.

An email is sent from an unknown party in MLDU to DOD. A heavily and strategically censored email will be released to the public in one year's time, who will see it in the following form:

MLDU has had a long standing and documented position against use of some of DOD's interrogation practises, however, we were not aware of these latest techniques until recently.

Of concern, DOD interrogators impersonating Supervisory Special Agents of the FBI told a detainee that [half line censored]. These same interrogation teams then [about one line censored]. The detainee was also told by this interrogation team [about one line censored].

These tactics have produced no intelligence of a threat neutralization nature to date and CITF believes that techniques have destroyed any chance of prosecuting this detainee.

If this detainee is ever released or his story made public in any way, DOD interrogators will not be held accountable because these torture techniques were done the "FBI" interrogators. The FBI will be left holding the bag before the public.
