Director Mueller testifying on the Hill/fbi photo

By CNN

WASHINGTON — A special group set up to interrogate captured terror suspects has been mobilized more than a dozen times in the past two years, FBI Director Robert Mueller said Wednesday.

“It’s been effective,” Mueller told a House appropriations subcommittee when asked about the use of the so-called High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group, known as HIG. “Over the last two years I think we’ve had 14 instances where we’ve deployed elements of the HIG to conduct interrogations.”

Mueller did not list the cases in which the HIG was used. A law enforcement official said the HIG can be deployed both overseas and in the United States and can be used in interrogations with U.S. citizens as well as non-citizens.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports that the NYPD activity, which as been written about in the media, is rubbing Michael Ward, head of the New Jersey FBI, the wrong way.

Ward, according to the paper, says the NYPD activity is damaging his agency’s ability to gather info.

“What we have now is (Muslim communities) … that they’re not sure they trust law enforcement in general, they’re fearing being watched, they’re starting to withdraw their activities,” Ward told The Star-Ledger in an exclusive interview. “And the impact of that sinking tide of cooperation means that we don’t have our finger on the pulse of what’s going on in the community as well — we’re less knowledgeable, we have blind spots, and there’s more risk.”

An influential computer hacker turned FBI informant led investigators to his former accomplices, helping federal agents make their first significant crack into Anonymous, a cybergroup that attacks corporate and government websites.

Four members of the international computer hacking group LulzSec were charged Tuesday with a worldwide conspiracy after the legendary hacker known in Internet circles as Sabu exposed the inner workings of the sophisticated attacks.

LulzSec hackers are allegedly part of a loose confederation of computer saboteurs known as Anonymous, which has “waged a deliberate campaign of online destruction, intimidation and criminality,” according to an indictment made public Tuesday in a federal court in New York.
