Summary:

Human Rights First (HRF) filed 34 FOIA requests, from June 2004 to August 2005, for records pertaining to investigations into the deaths of detainees in custody. HRF's subsequent report listed as examples a dozen detainee deaths as a result of torture, abuse, or force, and nine more detainee deaths in murkier circumstances; the report also used records to build its case that investigations had been insufficient and accountability had been lacking.
