From: Jeffrey Kaye

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

I am requesting a copy of a Military Police Professional Bulletin article, "Torture and Coercion as Police Interrogation Techniques." It dates from Fall 1974, and was written by Captain Robert G. Johnson, according to a list of MP Professional Bulletin article from 1952 to the "present" (believed to be 2012). The article is one of a number listed at the website for Ft. Leonard Wood, and the URL for that list is "".

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. It meets the public interest in that it will help fill in gaps in historical and public knowledge about the history of the subject of torture and interrogation i the armed forces, itself the subject of numerous articles and books in the past decade after the Abu Ghraib scandal.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
