CJTF-7.

Contributing

factors

can

be

traced

to issues affecting command and control, doctrine,

training, and the experience of the Soldiers we asked to

perform this vital mission.

The abuses at Abu Ghraib primarily fall into two

categories: a) intentionally violent or sexual abuse and,

b) abusive actions taken based on misinterpretations or

confusion regarding law or policy.

LTG Jones found that while senior level officers did

not commit the abuses at Abu Ghraib, they did bear

responsibility for lack of oversight of the facility,

failing to respond in a timely manner to the indications

and warnings provided by reports of incidents within the

command and as reported by agencies such as reports from

the International Committee of the Red Cross, and for

issuing policy memos that failed to provide clear,

consistent guidance for execution at the tactical level.

MG Fay found that from 25 July 2003 to 6 February

2004, twenty-seven 205th MI BDE Personnel allegedly

requested, encouraged, condoned or solicited Military

Police (MP) personnel to abuse detainees and/or

participated in detainee abuse and/or violated established

interrogation procedures and applicable laws and

regulations during interrogation operations at Abu Ghraib.
