The Army Times reports on May 17, 2004:

"Newark attorney Paul Bergrin, who is representing Sgt. Javal Davis, one of the MPs facing court-martial for abuse of prisoners, said the 'MPs were being told on a consistent basis' by military intelligence, 'We are not getting enough information from our interrogations. You have to soften them up.'"
