The following is the complete text of the unclassified F.B.I. memo, read on the Senate floor by Senator Durbin.<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>As requested, here is a brief summary of what I observed at GTMO.<br><br>On a couple of occassions, I entered interview rooms to find a detainee chained hand and foot in a fetal position to the floor, with no chair, food, or water. Most times they had urinated or defacated on themselves, and had been left therefor 18, 24 hours or more. On one occassion the air conditioning had been turned down so far and the temperature was so cold in the room, that the barefooted detainee was shaking with cold. When I asked the MP's what was going on, I was told that interrogators from the day prior had ordered this treatment, and the detainee was not to be moved. On another occassion the A/C had been turned off, making the temperature in the unventilated room probably well over 100 degrees. The detainee was almost unconcious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his own hair out throughout the night. On another occassion, not only was the temperature unbearably hot, but extremely loud rap music was being played in the room, and had been since the day before, with the detainee chained hand and foot in the fetal position on the tile floor.

In this case, some people manufactured outrage that the above action would be suggested more at home in a totalitarian regime than in America. Is that inaccurate? Is forcing people to [censored] themselves right at home next to baseball and apple pie?<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
