Counterterrorism Fly Team

The terrorist group Al-Shabaab has recently called on its supporters to attack shopping malls, such as Minnesota's Mall of America.  If someone in your area answers that call, who could local law enforcement turn to for help?  Since 2002 the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has had a specialized unit call the Counterterrorism Fly Team:

They are "A small, highly trained cadre of counterterrorism investigators—including Special Agents and Intelligence Analysts—based at FBI Headquarters who stand ready to deploy anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice." 

While it's reassuring to know that these experts exist in the real world, it also sounds like an excellent premise for a new TV show.  (Perhaps "Criminal Minds: CFT?")
