DYNAMIC PAGE -- HIGHEST POSSIBLE CLASSIFICATION IS TOP SECRET // SI / TK // REL TO USA AUS CAN GBR NZL (U//FOUO) SID Around the World: A TDY to Guantanamo Bay FROM: Customer Account Management (S112) Run Date: 12/22/2003 (S//REL) An early start can have you climbing John Paul Jones Hill to the Joint Task Force (JTF) SCIF while taking in a beautiful sunrise over the Caribbean Sea with Camp Delta looming austerely below on the southern coastline. After a hustled day of tackling a myriad of issues and directly contributing to the global war on terrorism, one might be inclined to drive out to Phillips Park and enjoy a gorgeous sunset over Leeward Landing; however, the day would not be complete without the frequent iguana encounter. Few work environments offer such an opportunity - a rewarding challenge with incredible surroundings. (S//REL) The mission of JTF-GTMO is to conduct detention and interrogation operations to collect and exploit intelligence in support of the global war on terrorism (GWOT), to screen detainees, and to support law enforcement and war crimes investigations. The NSA Liaison Officer (NSA LNO) works in the Joint Interrogation Group (JIG), a major element of JTF-GTMO. The interrogation focus at Guantanamo is strategic; tactical questioning is accomplished in-theater to see what they know, categorize them accordingly, and determine what requirements they can satisfy. (S) The work can be extremely interesting, challenging and very fulfilling. On a given week, the NSA LNO might pull together intelligence to support an upcoming interrogation, formulate questions and strategies for the interrogation, and observe or participate in the interrogation. Afterward, the LNO captures and disseminates pertinent technical information gleaned from the interrogation back to NSA TOPIs for SIGINT development. (U//FOUO) Outside work, fun awaits and opportunities abound. Water sports are outstanding: boating, paddling, fishing, water skiing and boarding, sailing, swimming, snorkeling, and SCUBA. No experience, no problem. Learn how to operate a boat in a weekend, become a certified open water scuba diver within weeks. If you've already mastered these skills, or once you do, the MWR marina rents boats from pontoon party boats to Carolina skiffs to ski boats to kayaks...and recently they've added sailboat rentals, too. The local dive shop has all the gear and tips to ensure a perfect outing. Surround all this water fun with a Tiki Bar and a Jerk House as well as the Bayview Restaurant ... relaxing is easy. (U//FOUO) Water sports not your cup of tea? There are many other activities to round your day off. The library has two dozen internet terminals and over 1000 videos. Or take in a movie at the outdoor theatre featuring a weekly variety of the latest releases. Other activities include: pottery, hiking, nature walks, biking, paintball, martial arts, tennis, racquetball, basketball, softball, and bowling. There are also several swimming pools and gyms. Or, just relax and take in the warmth of the sun. (U//FOUO) If you would be interested in a TDY opportunity at SERIES: (U) SID Around the World '03 1. Coming Soon: SID Around the World! 2.
