Prisoner Abuse: Rumsfeld handwriting shows aware of techniques; report says civilians share responsibility

The evidence is clear. Yet, will America dare hold it's leadership accountable? Report states both civilan and military leaders share responsibility.

"However I stand for eight to 10 hours a day, why should the stress positions be limited to four hours?"--Rumsfeld, showing he was aware of the report, conditions, and tecqniques

Rumsfeld's handwritten comments on the document.

September 10 is the date the General Fay report is due. Fay was the General who reviewed the contract problems with CACI.

May 27, 2004: CACI publicly announces it is being investigated by the U.S. General Services Administration over contracting rules violations and whether a possible ban from future government contracts. One major issue is that CACI was contracted for purchases of information technology services and equipment. The contract was made through the Defense Department, but administered by the Interior Department. Interior approved an Army request to use the contract to buy interrogation services. At issue is whether this fell outside the contract scope. CACI CEO London also said his company was aware of four other investigations into CACI involved at Abu Ghraib, including the Army’s Office of the Inspector General, the Defense Contract Audit Agency, the military intelligence investigation led by Major General George R. Fay, and the Interior Department’s inspector general. CACI got 92 percent of its revenue from federal clients in 2003.


Good source of timely information.
