Crime Fighter
    (February 6, 1952-September 11, 2001)
    Born in Atlantic City, New Jersey
    FBI agent (1976-2001)
    Head of the counterterrorism section (1995-2001)
    Investigated the World Trade Center bombing (1993), the Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia (1996) and the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen (2000)
    After retiring from the FBI, became head of security for the World Trade Center
    Killed in the 9/11 attacks
    Subject of the Frontline documentary 'The Man Who Knew' (2002) and the book 'The Man Who Warned America' (2003)
    He clashed repeatedly with his superiors, with the result that he was not sent to investigate the US embassy bombings in Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam (1998).
    He repeatedly conflicted with Barbara Bodine, the US ambassador to Yemen, during the Cole investigation.
    During the months before he left the FBI, he lost track of a briefcase containing sensitive documents, lost an agency Palm Pilot and cell phone, and improperly borrowed a car from a safe house.
    After his death, his three girlfriends and his wife were each surprised to discover there were other women in his life.
    He established the Fugitive Task Force to promote cooperation between the FBI and local law enforcement.
    He coordinated the capture and extradition of Ramzi Yousef.
    At a conference on terrorism (1997), he warned, 'A lot of these groups now have the capability and the support infrastructure in the United States to attack us here if they choose to.'
    His supporters think the missing briefcase (it was recovered shortly with no documents missing) was part of a smear campaign to force him out of the FBI.
    On 9/11, he made a cell phone call to his son, then went back into the WTC to help with the evacuation.
