A recent case may lead to more use of FBI crime fighters and the civilian justice system for combating terror.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – Since the Obama administration took office, there has been a lot of discussion on how to interrogate those suspected of terrorism. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the cooperation of Bryant Neal Vinas, an American born al-Qaida recruit who was taken to New York after his arrest in Pakistan, and given the same rights as any other American crime suspect, may lead to more reliance on the civilian justice system and FBI work for combating terror.
With those rights in place, Vinas reportedly revealed what law enforcement call a “treasure trove” of information. As noted by the AP, an anonymous official states that when Vinas was first captured, he seemed afraid, but after being brought to the United States he opened up and shared information that possibly stopped several planned terrorist attacks in the works, including attacks on the Long Island rail road and New York City transit systems.
The technique used for Vinas could reportedly lead to a new way of handling suspected terrorists as opposed to strict use of traditional CIA interrogations and military detention.
