ABSTRACT

Memorandum for William J. Haynes, II, General Counsel, Department of Defense: Re: Potential Legal Constraints Applicable to Interrogations of Persons Captured by U.S. Armed Forces in Afghanistan   [open pdf - 2MB]

This memorandum issues a series of legal constraints that might apply to the interrogation process of persons captured in Afghanistan. Previous decisions such as "Miranda v. Arizona" set that obtaining intelligence for military operations and force protection are observed under a wide range of applications and specifics. This memorandum offers a wide reaching perspective on what could be relevant in this context, as well as custodial interrogation processes.
