Obama's New Interrogation Unit
Last month we reported on the Obama Administration's plan to shift interrogation of high-value detainees from the CIA.
The Washington Post reports the new plan has now been approved.
Obama signed off late last week on the unit, named the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group, or HIG. Made up of experts from several intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the interrogation unit will be housed at the FBI but will be overseen by the National Security Council -- shifting the center of gravity away from the CIA and giving the White House direct oversight.
