NEW evening #FOIA thread

An impt #Guantanamo detainee related document I obtained via Mandatory Declassification Review I filed with DOD 7 YEARS AGO

This is a report about the mental health of detainees and the reliability of intel they provided to their captors

This particular report grew out of a prior DOD investigation into whether #Guantanamo detainees were given mind altering drugs to facilitate interrogations.

(@jeff_kaye broke that story open in 2012 based on a docs we obtained)


@jeff_kaye This investigation was conducted to
determine whether JTF GTMO intel reports included
information regarding the detainees' mental health status or their history of medication with substances and to determine the possible effect on finished intelligence.

@jeff_kaye This investigation found "regulatory guidance authorizes health-care providers to share detainee medical information with interrogators. but...execution of these policies at Gitmo has been inconsistent, resulting in confusion health-care providers and interrogation elements"

@jeff_kaye The agencies involved in this investigation include DIA and CIA.

Ultimately, the integrity of intel some detainees provided to their captors can be called into question because their mental health status and whether they were administered psychoactive drugs was not shared

@jeff_kaye (I got this report in December but I was busy working on a bunch of investigative stories that month (and dodging bullets so to speak) and did not have a free moment to crack it open)

@jeff_kaye Still, while this report is heavily redacted it is still a valuable historical document & contributes to our understanding of post-9/11 policies pertaining to the treatment of detainees in custody of the US.

Here's the link to the full report.


@jeff_kaye REMINDER: It took me 7 YEARS to pry this loose!
