Lahmar: Allegations of Abuse, Detainee Statements in his CSRT

From my first day in Cuba, I asked the interrogators to questioned [sic] me regarding the bombing of the Embassy. They tried to avoid asking me questions regarding that matter. On occasion, they told me they knew I didn’t attempt to blow up the Embassy; they only brought me to Cuba for information. They told me if I gave them information, they would let me go. I refused to talk until they interrogated me on the matter regarding the Embassy [or "until they addressed the accusation of the bombing of the Embassy," in the Tribunal Records]. This lasted for eight months before they gave up on me talking. I was punished and placed in solitary confinement for three months (p. 758 of his Detainee Statements or p. 4904 of his Tribunal Records).
