Okay. #66: Now, moving from this location to exit the building, describe how one goes to move from here to the exit of the building... #01: It's a low wooden door to a room with tables-and chairs... and very, very heavy doors, double doors to a, uh, earthen floor compound. It's inside a little wall. It's the only way out. Like some kind of slots, or something, the ceiling. #66: Am I correct in understanding we have a shoebox shaped building inside of a compound with a low wall? #66: Describe the size and dimensions of the shoebox shaped building. #01: It's, uh...30 feet, uh, by 40 feet.

Tell me what makes you say this. #01: Uh...I, I feel like if I follow the main road through this town it goes southwest to northeast. If I go northeast I would go to Teheran, which is like only 15 kilometers away, maybe less. #66: Okay... I have no further questions at this time, I'd like to provide you the opportunity to add anything you would like to... #01: They're all talking about something. #66: Ali ..~ Describe their general state of health. It's like they're not overly concerned about being hostages anymore. The guards are more for keeping people out than worrying about their escape. Guards aren't watching them, they're watching the outside. #66: You had mentioned before that there were two guards inside and more outside. How many outside? #01: I don't know, there's just people watching outside... lounging in the area, only one armed, and he's on the roof. #66: Inside are they armed? #01: Two inside are armed, but they're not, uh...they're not holding their arms, they're like laying on tables, and they're drinking something, talking and drinking something. They don't, they just don't seem to be concerned about the inside, they're only concerned about the outside. #66: Okay.

And there's a...there' a...there's a field there or something, next to the builcjling with some kind of suspended cables and pulleys and thin building with. that's kind of unique, and might be easy to identify t What's the function of these cables and pulleys? #01: I don't know they're hanging in the air, and there's this like loops of cables and pulleys. I don't know what it's for. Maybe not used anymore but still hanging there. That's all I've got, I'm...kind of losing it. #66: Okay, let's draw those things that you have had, then. Okay, we're ready to draw here. #01: Well, let's see. I had a feeling like this, uh...this building, I think I said it was like 30 by 40 feet, it was probably more like 25 to 40, it looked just like a shoebox, it really did. It even looked like it had a roof on it, like a shoebox top. Looking at it from the top, I had like a heavy wooden double doors-at the entrance, and, uh, these were really clear, they were like two dark brown wooden squares, and they were real heavy wood, they were plain as could be, and there was just hinges visible and they were shut. And right inside there was a small room, the back of which had another wooden door, but this was like an older fashioned door of slatted wood of some kind, vertical stripe wood, you know, like great big chunks of wood put, together. And in this ro , was`-? rds, which I'll indicate with "G's" circle. And there s like one or two tables, whI I'll indicate with "T's". Put a little legend down any``t her detai`r d chairs in this ro .- ?r"or some reason I didn t see rust wooden chairs, you know .ust-sal simple wooden table si a circ e on is rug, and they all had, uh, like laying next to them or over on the side, these pillowcases or something, some kind of cloth bags with their clothing and stuff stuffed in 'em. All sitting around and they were like six or somethin . "" is ho nd they were just felt like there was more than five, bu - you know, The walls were stucco over stone, and the stucco was like a yellow, this is both rooms, stucco was like a yellow, uh, very, very, light-okra type color. And then inside this other room, at one corner, was like a walk-in type fireplace and cooking area. Something you could actually walk up under, but it didn't go outside the building, it was just right there in the corner. And there was a big old rug, covered the stone floor, and it's like an earthenware stone floor, e a10 . And there was like, uh, these like f' or six hostages sitting- I m ^ure ab ut the number.

And the guards in the front didn't appear to be concerned about watch- ing the hostages inside, it was like, well, we've got this good old boy agreement, and they're not gonna try anything, so we're not worried about them, but we're more concerned about watching the outside. And then there was a, uh, some kind of a low wall compound that went like this...that's like the compound area. And I'm not sure if this garden was in the compound front, or if it was in the rear. But there was a, I think it mighta been to the rear, uh...some garden to the rear, and there was a road here, that went down the side of the building, and there was a road out here. #66: Okay, you can draw those in from a higher altitude perspective. Before we leave drawing #1, though, I'd like to ask you something now, and I'don't want to lead you into response, but I want to notice something that during the course of the session, at no time did you mention any sleeping apparatus or bathroom apparatus, or anything like that. #01: No. And I, like I said, I was looking for detail in this room, you know, like beds, lamps, pictures on the wall, that sort of thing, and there was nothin' there, it's just like this big rug in this big open, earthen, clay tile floor, with a big upright fireplace that you can walk into in the corner. And I didn't see anything else. #66: Now, one time you did have a feeling, uh, that there was a vehicle that had arrived and there was something, some con- cept or thoughts that you perceived, something about moving from this location. #01: Yeah, and, uh... #66: And in your later, in later looking at this location in a future time you felt that there was foodjthere was food there, or... #01: Yeah, they were, they were delivering food. #66: Somebody was delivering food here, okay. #01: It's being delivered, but it was being delivered locally, I mean it was like coming from across the road and down a block kind of thing. #66: Okay. 6 Approved For Release 2000/08/07: CIA-RE P96-00788R0O1000060001-5 Approved For Release 2000/08/07 : CI - - -5 :,--? II #01: And, uh...I saw a landrover type truck, in the 24 hour period prior... whoever came in the truck is the one that made 'em put all their stuff in the bags, so I don't know if, well, I'd just be guessing if I said anything else. I don't know why there's know, no detail facility there or any- thing... #66: Okay, that's fine, I, I wanted to talk to you about that now that the session is over just noticing that you didn't talk about bedding or anything like that. #01: Clearly there wasn't anything there. #66: Okay. #01: Uh...There's uh...I wanna give you a picture from the front of this building. #66: Okay, and I want a picture from a higher altitude, too. #01: Yeah. The front of the building struck me as really unique, it just really- #66: This is the shoebox building? #01: Yeah, it's the first thing I saw, and it, you know, it just was just like looking at a shoebox. I don't... It was like a framework of stone that, went around the door, double doors in the front like this. And there was just these two big heavy doors. And it was all earth colored and brown, and that was it, and that really struck me as odd, just- #66: Drawing #2 is your very first concept. #01: Front. Very first. #66: Of the front of the building where you feel German is located. #01: Right. I didn't see it in the front view, but I felt like- page 3- along the, where the roof came, and the wall of the building, felt like there was some kind of slots or some- the walls. Right up on the roofline, and I don't know why, I just, you know, I was- #66: Is this from the outside orr the outside or the inside? #01: Yeah. I was just picturing these slots up there, I don't... Maybe some form of ventilation, or something... #66: Now how about a high altitude picture of the, uh, situation. This will be on page 4 then for the higher altitude picture.

And there was a road, about like this...... There was like a row of buildings here...and, building here... And, uh, the compound went like compound I mean an open area with this low wall around it. It might belong to that particular building, or it may be something that some- body decided to put a low wall around. I don't know, you know, it's 'u wan o ansi at it's some pr e encompassed area. All I mean by comp is a low then right here was an area of uh, eables...and pulleys. I wanna, I don't know if I can draw a picture of that or not, all built around an area that's cleared of anything. And .they ware---suspended in the air-,- you --.4c?t ,, like I was gettin' this, uh- maybe I better- I was getting this gestaltic impression of cables suspended in the air. They were like, uh...this kind of an effect...just cables... pulleys. It might help find the building, I don't know... #66: Now, uh, you had from a larger perspective some feeling about, uh, this was located near Teheran but not in the city of Teheran or something. #01: Oh, if you followed this road... #01( For some reason I drew this upside down, I think--d eye this upside down. Um, I'm not sure if I'm upside own or what. If you went this way it's like 15 kilometers. .to, uh, Teheran, ' know how to spell Teheran. #01: Okay, but as I look at this picture for some reason, okay, over here I'm putting the asterisk, I get the feeling that that might be the road to Teheran. Which means my norths might be screwed up. #66: Okay, so what you're saying is now that you have drawn the picture on the page you know that one of these roads would lead to Teheran but you're not too sure which one it is? #01: I don't know if north is straight up and down the page or if north is south on the page, as I'm looking at it now. #66: Okay. #01: You know, it, in my mind I was firmly fixed that as I have drawn this compound and everything, north is to the top of the page, but now, f --sarttis reaso , n I see it drawn on the paper, I fe ike north is south the page. And I don'.t know wha wi es ti ut that's what I'm feeling, so it could be either to top or the bottom of the page.
