The witnesses include a U.S. soldier and a CIA interpreter who said on August 9 that 40-year-old David Passaro kicked the detainee so hard he was lifted from the ground.
They say Passaro also hit Abdul Wali repeatedly with a heavy flashlight during two nights of interrogation in June 2003 at Bagram Airfield north of Kabul.
Wali died soon after the interrogation.
