U.S. Examines Role of C.I.A. and Employees in Iraq Deaths

The Justice Department is examining the involvement of Central Intelligence Agency officers and contract employees in three suspicious deaths of detainees, two in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, federal law enforcement officials said Wednesday. One of the victims of suspected abuse was an Iraqi major general in the Republican Guard, who died in November 2003, several days after he was questioned at an interrogation center in western Iraq by C.I.A. officers, according to a senior law enforcement official. The official said the Pentagon had identified the Iraqi officer as Abid Hamid Mohush. On Wednesday, a C.I.A. official outlined the cases in which agency employees or contractors are involved but declined to identify any of the agency employees.
