US forces face new inmate abuse claims

Daily Telegraph 9/12/04

"The memo was written by the head of the DIA, Vice-Adml Lowell Jacoby. Following the complaints, he told Mr Cambone, special forces officers "threatened" his men, "instructed them not to leave the compound without permission, informed them that their e-mails were being screened" and "ordered them not to talk to anyone in the US......The Jacoby memo became public this week after civil rights groups sued for its release under the Freedom of Information Act. A Pentagon spokesman said the released papers had formed part of previous investigations of abuse, or ongoing investigations."
