New Terror Interrogation Team at FBI: A Shift for Intelligence – Wall Street Journal

Of all the elements of the new terrorism interrogation teams set up by President Barack Obama and announced this morning, among the most important is the fact it will be headquartered at the Federal Bureau of Investigation rather than at the rival Central Intelligence Agency.

The new units will include personnel from a wide range of intelligence and law enforcement agencies, according to White House officials. But by bringing the interrogation units into the FBI, it moves them more definitively out from the world of black ops, where they have resided since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
