White House terrorism adviser John Brennan said Tuesday a special team of investigators has begun interrogating Faisal Shahzad, top suspect of the failed Times Square bombing.
The special team is made up of investigators from the FBI, CIA and Defense Department. The idea is to quickly extract information from the suspect to head off any plots that might be about to unfold and track down anyone who might have aided the suspect.
He also noted that the team is not designed to gather evidence for prosecution. It works to preserve evidence that might be needed in court.
Because of the sensitivity of the Time Square case, Brennan said that many of the elements that now make up the special interrogation team can not be disclosed for now.
