The Army continued its effort to keep the public informed concerning detainee operations by releasing documents today pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
Several inquiries examining all aspects of detention operations have been completed and additional inquiries are underway. The major inquiries are based on more than 1700 interviews. Additionally, more than 350 criminal investigations have viewed allegations of detainee mistreatment. Thus far, allegations against nearly 125 military members have been addressed in courts-martial, non-judicial punishment, and other adverse administrative action.
