“The Church Report [the independent investigation of Vice Admiral Albert Church into detainee abuse at Guantanamo (GTMO), released on May 11, 2004] stated of Guantanamo Bay: ‘Detainees were more likely to suffer injury from playing soccer or volleyball during recreational periods than they were from interactions with interrogators or guards. …In our view, the extremely low rate of abuse at GTMO is largely due to strong command oversight, effective leadership, and adequate training on detainee handling and treatment.’ ”
