FBI Counterrorism Officials Named

New leaders were announced Thursday for the FBI’s key counterterrorism positions and for its large field office in New York City, the latest in a string of changes made by Director Robert Mueller. Pasquale J. “Pat” D’Amuro, who has held the top two counterterrorism jobs at FBI headquarters since shortly after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was named as assistant FBI director in charge of the New York office. D’Amuro previously held several key positions in the New York office, where he started his FBI career in 1979. He oversaw investigations into the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the 1998 terrorist attacks on U.S. embassies in Africa and the 2000 attack on the USS Cole in Yemen.
