This report reveals the following:
I. A report issued by a Lieutenant General of the United States Army indicates that more than 24,000 interrogations have been conducted at Guantánamo since 2002.
II. A second report, produced almost simultaneously by the Surgeon General of the United States Army, reveals that all interrogations conducted at Guantánamo were videotaped. Thus, many videotapes documenting Guantánamo interrogations do or did exist.
III. An infrastructure for videotaping exists at Guantánamo.
IV. The Central Intelligence Agency is just one of many entities that interrogated detainees in Guantánamo.
V. Each of these entities has identical motives to destroy taped investigations as has the Central Intelligence Agency, and each can apply to its destruction of tapes an identical justification: its interest in “protecting” the interrogators. Any videotapes that may still exist are vulnerable to destruction if they have not already been destroyed.
VI. Because the Government kept detailed logs of interrogations, it is readily ascertainable which videotapes still exist and which tapes have been destroyed. Such an inquiry is crucial to the evaluation—as required by Combatant Status Review Tribunal procedures, the Military Commission Act, and the Detainee Treatment Act—of the reliability of hearsay evidence against a detainee.
