    Report of violations of the Geneva Conventions

    Excerpts from this memorandum (PDF Format) - A report of violations of the Geneva Conventions by US personnel. Thanks to H of Terrorism News fame for the link: "I was employed by the Defense Intelligence Agency as an Intelligence Officer assigned and under the operational control to [BLANKED OUT]" "On or about 11 May 2004, in Baghdad, Iraq, I witnessed the mistreatment of a TF 6-26 detainee during the initial interrogation after his capture. During the interrogation, conducted by a US Army interrogator, four or five non-interrogator personnel from the Task Force entered the room and began slapping the detainee while he was attempting to respond to the questioning. After approximately 15 minutes, a senior NCO, going by call sign "XO3" entered the room and asked most of the personnel to leave, to include ALL of the interrogators. I am not aware of what specifically occurred during my absence. [BLANKED OUT] officer assigned to the Task Force, was present as well and witnessed the incident. [BLANKED OUT] was observing the interrogation and I was assisting the lead interrogator. A 1" SF Group interrogator also augmenting the unit. I am not aware if this matter has been previously reported." "On 9 May 2004, TF 6-26 personnel detained the wife of a suspected Iraqi terrorist, in Tarmiya, Iraq. The 28 year old woman had three young children at the house, one being as young as six months and still nursing...........During the pre-operation brief it was recommended by TF personnel that if the wife were present, she be detained and held in order to leverage the primary target's surrender......I objected to the detainment of the young mother....."
