Day 6[edit | edit source]
Tuers was directing a line of prisoners who were apprehended for terrorism suspicions. He informed them that they would have to strip down for a cavity search, after which they would receive their clothes. One of the inmates, Salim, was indignant over his arrest, did not wish to keep moving in the line, and wanted to speak with someone in charge. After a brief exchange, Tuers tried to push Salim along, but he resisted, so Tuers and another soldier forcefully put Salim in a hold with his baton. Nearby, another prisoner, Islamic-American Alliance Director Walid Al-Rezani, shouted out in support for Salim. When Walid refused to get back in line, Tuers struck him and had Walid taken for interrogation.
Walid's support of Salim during the scuffle with Tuers helped build a relationship of trust between the two Muslim men, which figured into later events.
