History

CACI was founded by businessman Herb Karr and future Nobel laureate Harry Markowitz who left RAND Corporation in 1962 to commercialize the SIMSCRIPT simulation programming language. The company went public in 1968. "CACI", which was originally an acronym for "California Analysis Center, Incorporated", was changed to stand for "Consolidated Analysis Center, Incorporated" in 1967. In 1973, the acronym alone was adopted as the firm's official name; it no longer stands for anything. CACI's corporate motto is "Ever Vigilant."

Abu Ghraib Controversy

In 2004, the company was linked to the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse along with another US Government contractor, Titan Corp. (now owned by L-3 Communications). CACI employees Joe Ryan and Steven Stephanowicz were investigated in the Taguba inquiry. The Department of the Army found that "contractors were involved in 36 percent of the [Abu Ghraib] proven incidents" and identified 6 employees as "individually culpable" P. W. Singer (March/April 2005) "Outsourcing War". Foreign Affairs. Council on Foreign Relations. New York City, NY] , although none have faced prosecution, unlike DoD servicemen.

According to an early Army report, a CACI interrogator, " [m] ade a false statement to the investigation team regarding the locations of his interrogations, the activities during his interrogations, and his knowledge of abuses". Further, investigators found the CACI interrogator encouraged Military Policemen to terrorize inmates, and "clearly knew his instructions equated to physical abuse".

CACI Response

According to CACI’s website, "the company provided a range of Information Technology (IT) and intelligence services in Iraq. These services included intelligence analysis, background investigations, screenings, interrogation, property management and recordkeeping, and installation of computer systems, software and hardware. Only a small portion of these employees worked as interrogators. The company states that "no CACI employee or former employee has been indicted for any misconduct in connection with this work, and no CACI employee or former employee appears in any of the photos released from Abu Ghraib". CACI also adds that they "are no longer providing interrogation services in Iraq," which concluded in the early fall of 2005 upon the conclusion of a contract with the Department of the Army.

CACI also adds "nonetheless, we do not condone, tolerate or endorse any illegal behavior by our employees in any circumstance or at any time. We will act forcefully if the evidence shows that any of our employees acted improperly, but we will not rush to judgment on the basis of speculation, innuendo, partial reports or incomplete investigations."

CACI also claims on their website that US Government reports generally "concluded that civilian interrogators performed their duties in an appropriate fashion and made a major contribution to the US mission in Iraq." CACI further claims a March 2005 report by US Navy Inspector General and Vice Admiral Albert T. Church shows that despite the publicity surrounding Abu Ghraib, "we found very few instances of abuse involving contractors." cite web|url=http://www.caci.com/iraq_faqs.shtml|title=CACI in Iraq - Frequently Asked Questions]

Radio show comments result in a lawsuit

On August 26, 2005, Randi Rhodes, a host for the Air America talk radio program, claimed that employees of CACI International had raped and murdered Iraqi civilians at the Abu Ghraib prison. CACI sued Air America and its parent company, Piquant LLC, for allegedly making "false and defamatory" charges. CACI sought $1M in compensatory damages and $10M in punitive damages. The claim was dismissed by a US District Court judge on September 21, 2006. [cite web|url=http://forums.therandirhodesshow.com/caci_opinion.pdf|title=Court papers: The USA District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia Alexandria division|format=pdf] CACI is pursuing an appeal, having received permission to do so from a bankruptcy court (which lifted the automatic stay that resulted when Air America filed for bankruptcy protection).

May 2008 abuse lawsuit

In May 2008, four former Abu Ghraib prison inmates, who were all released without charge, brought separate lawsuits in four US courts against CACI and L-3 Communications as well as against three civilians. One of these former inmates, Emad al-Janabi, sued and CACI for allowing their employees to abuse him physically and mentally at the prison.
