Guantánamo Reprimand Was Sought, an Aide Says

A high-level military investigation into accusations of abuse of detainees at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, recommended a reprimand for the former commander of the prison, but his superior declined to admonish him, said a Congressional aide who has read a report on the inquiry.

Miller, who was in charge of Guantánamo in 2002 and 2003, failed to oversee the interrogation of a so-called high-value detainee who was subjected to abusive treatment but not tortured, the aide said. Instead of reprimanding General Miller, Gen. Bantz J. Craddock, commander of the United States Southern Command, referred the matter to the Army inspector general, according to an account by the aide, who took detailed notes on the report and spoke on condition of anonymity because it had not been released yet.
