Obama spokesman announces interrogation unit.
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama has approved creation of a new, special terrorism-era interrogation unit to be supervised by the White House, a top aide said Monday, further distancing his administration from President George W. Bush's detainee policies.

The new unit does not mean the CIA is now out of the interrogation business, deputy White House press secretary Bill Burton told reporters covering the vacationing Obama at Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard, Mass.

Burton said the unit will include "all these different elements under one group," and it said that it will be situated at the FBI headquarters in Washington. The unit would be led by an FBI official, with a deputy director from somewhere in the government's vast intelligence apparatus, and members from across agencies. It will be directly supervised by the White House.

Separately, Burton said that a recommendation now before Attorney General Eric Holder to reopen and pursue prisoner abuse cases is a decision solely for Holder to make without any intervention from the president.

The structure of the new unit the White House is creating would depart significantly from such work under the previous administration, when the CIA had the lead and sometimes exclusive role in questioning al-Qaida suspects.

Obama campaigned vigorously against Bush's interrogation policies in his successful run for the presidency. He has said more recently he didn't particularly favor prosecuting Bush administration officials in connection with instances of prisoner abuse. Obama still believes "we should be looking forward, not backward," Burton said Monday.

More pablum for the slaves. The exact same people will be doing the exact same things as they've been doing since the torture began. They will change the names and shuffle things around and confuse the issue but NOTHING will change. These people are evil beyond most of our imaginations.

Here is where I look back.
Here is where you fell.
This is where I got up,
Shaking off my tail
This is where your rope trick
Started to look stale.

Interrogation Czar.

Good thing they aren't referring to USA citizens as domestic terrorists for simply disagreeing with the status quo. If that would happening this would be scary and ominous...

so now the white house will be directly in charge of interrogating those pesky arab terrorists...

aren't you glad we aren't considered domestic terrorist for things like subversive bumper stickers and supporting third party candidates for president?

"It will be directly supervised by the White House." Heil Hitler, Obama's SS lives. So does this mean the FBI is easier to control than the CIA?!

From the link:

"The new interrogation unit will be known by the acronym HIG."

What does this stand for?
