WH adviser: High-value detainee interrogation group questions Shahzad

WH adviser: 'High-value detainee interrogation group' questions Shahzad --The elite team of investigators from the FBI, CIA and Defense Department was set up to question terror suspects as soon as possible after an arrest. 18 May 2010 White House terrorism adviser John Brennan said Tuesday a special team of investigators has begun interrogating high-value terrorist suspects in the U.S. and abroad, including the man accused in the failed Times Square bombing. At a foreign policy forum, Brennan confirmed that the so-called high-value detainee interrogation group, or the HIG, has been at work for the past few months. The unit as it exists now is run by the FBI and headed by an FBI employee with two deputies - one from the CIA and one from the Defense Department, the officials said.
