U.S. President Barack Obama signed off on setting up a special terrorism interrogation team that would be placed at the FBI but report directly to the White House-based National Security Council, a top aide said Monday. The new High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group would be led by an FBI official and comprised of law enforcement and intelligence experts, deputy White House press secretary Bill Burton told reporters covering the vacationing Obama at Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard, Mass. The structure of the new unit differs significantly from such work under the previous administration, when the CIA had the lead and sometimes exclusive role in questioning al-Qaeda suspects.
