Skip to comments.Too bad to be true? (0's "High Value Detainee Interrogation Group" Doesn't Exist)

Scott has written about the fact that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the would-be Christmas-day bomber, was interrogated by the FBI instead of the "High Value Detainee Interrogation Group." The creation of this Group -- the HIG -- was announced with some fanfare a year ago by President Obama who, having shut down the CIA's terrorist interrogation program, hoped to the counter the impression that he wasn't serious about protecting America.
Dennis Blair testified before Congress that Abdulmutallab should have been questioned by the HIG. He also stated that he was not consulted about this matter and that other important intelligence officials were not consulted either.
The notion that the FBI would interrogate a high value detainee like Abdulmutallab, rather than having the interrogation handled by a special group set up expressly for that purpose, is shocking -- so shocking that Blair slapped his head when he tesitifed about the HIG's lack of involvement. What is the purpose of a "High Value Detainee Interrogation Group" if not to question, or at least play a role in the handling, of a guy sent into the country by an emerging branch of al Qaeda with explosives in his underwear?
Blair's testimony seemed too bad to be true, and that turned out to be the case. But not because the HIG did, in fact, interrogate Abdulmutallab; rather, because the HIG does not actually exist as an operational entity.
Blair made this clear in what must rank as the among the most embarrassing "clarificatons" of congressional testimony ever.

So the socialist muslim from Kenya lied about creating the High Value Detainee Interrogation Group?
Yes, yes he did.
I bet the HIG has been drawing down its budget allotment
He seems to be mentally ill... constantly lies, has roots based in the tooth fairy and muslim lies.. He will say anything ...
OMG!! YES, WE CAN! must have meant..”YES, WE CAN FOOL the STUPID AMERICAN VOTERS!!”
This guy is president of the United States.
I’m sure The Kenyan has been funneling their budget to ACORN, NAMBLA and the ACLU.
“Hello. I’m the man from HIG, and I’m here to interrogate you.”
—fictional TV program
"It [O's Administration ] got rid of key tools used during the Bush administration and has failed to deliver tools it promised to supply as replacements."
That would be the HIG Planning Group (drawing down its budget allotment) which likely has not issued a report on what the HIG should actually be, whenever it is actually created.
Don't hold your breath - we are in good bureaucratic hands... choke.
You know they are getting paid...... WHAT A BUNCH OF.................
