"The material that was seized from that residence is being reviewed by an interagency team — CIA, Justice, other intelligence agencies, other law enforcement agencies are all contributing people and machines to go through that material," Holder said.
 
"As we glean information from that material we will make appropriate decisions with regard to who might be added to the terrorist watch list, the no-fly list, all those things," he said. 

Schumer asked Holder if he expected the review would result in the government barring more people from boarding planes and Holder replied, "My guess would be that we probably will."
 
Schumer said the "treasure trove of intelligence material" found by the U.S. Navy SEALS after they killed bin Laden over the weekend was "sort of great and a gold mine, I guess, for us."
