I would consider this an Update to SusanHu's diary, DOD Personnel Impersonated State Dept. Officials at Gitmo.

Susan, I've read over your diary and didn't see any mention of this in your diary. If I missed it, I apologize.

Follow me...

Update [2005-5-27 10:48:11 by Stand Strong]: Sorry for the bad links. I don't know what happened but I just woke up, saw the comments, and made the fixes. I apologize for the confusion.

Update [2005-5-27 11:38:45 by Stand Strong]: Fixing a margin error with the links. Hope this works for all of you.

Update [2005-5-29 16:59:5 by Stand Strong]: Coming back from an out of state weekend, I saw comments from Up2Late and another that I hadn't given proper credit for this story. I just want to make clear two things - A: I did not purposely omit the original posters name, only I hurried this along after seeing it at DU and B: that credit should, is, and in the future will will be given, on my part, to the originators (in this case, Up2Late) to those who are responsible for stories that I move along. My sincerest apologies to Up2Late and anyone else whose idea of me may have been sullied by this carelessness on my behalf. I apologize!

Picked this up over at Democratic Underground and so I'll just get right to the point.

More FOIA documents were released today by the ACLU (available on-line click here) in connection with another legal action they are filing in New York Courts today. They are also available in pdf format.

Below is just one of the un-redacted e-mails they posted at their website, in connection to a new Press Release, which I posted in LBN at this link: Link.

The link to the ACLU Press Release at their website is:

E-mail (from CTD employee to Frankie Battle) noting that sender is forwarding this EC up the chain of command, concerning alleged impersonation of FBI Agents at GTMO


Same document as Detainee-2797 with the following unredacted: "Of concern, DOD interrogators impersonating Supervisory Special Agents of the FBI told a detainee that the FBI..." and "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." and "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 (by) the "FBI" interrogators. The FBI will (be) left holding the bag before the public."

Susan, you're the better investigator than me. Feel free to update your diary with this if this was indeed not covered in yours.

Nice - so we got the DOD trying to frame the FBI, yet does everyone remember back after 9/11, how the FBI got so much heat for apparently "dropping the ball?" In my opinion, if the DOD is trying to frame another law enforcing and intelligence gathering AMERICAN force, it just smells way, way, way too much like this is coming from above. Way above.

Possibly the top.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
