The Schlesinger Report on Abu Ghraib was released on August 24, 2004. “Of the 300 allegations of abuse that have been made from the 50,000 people detained in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, 155 investigations have been completed and 66 cases of abuse substantiated, the report said. Eight took place at Guantanamo, three in Afghanistan, and 55 in Iraq, the report said. ‘Only about one-third were related to interrogation, and two-thirds to other causes,’ it said. Five detainees died from abuse during interrogations, it said. Many others died from natural causes and enemy mortar attacks. Twenty-three cases of detainee deaths were still under investigation–three in Afghanistan and 20 in Iraq–the report said.”
