FBI special agent John M. Cole was bushed after putting in another twelve-hour shift at the Washington command center set up to investigate the 9/11 suicide hijackings. In early 2002, the case, codenamed PENTTBOM, was still top priority for all agents.

But Cole had a stack of files waiting for him at his office at FBI headquarters related to his regular duties with the bureau's counterintelligence division managing the national programs for Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. Part of those duties required conducting what are called "risk assessments" on applicants for FBI jobs, especially foreign language specialists, to evaluate their propensity for spying on the United States, among other security risks. Several of their personnel files landed on his desk. He was the final step in their background investigation.
The first file he looked at that night after dragging himself back to his office involved a Pakistani American who had applied for a language specialist position translating Urdu and Pashto, tongues critical to the bureau in its battle against al-Qaida. After thumbing through the paperwork, "I felt something was missing in that file," Cole says. "So I put it aside and came in early the next day to take a closer look at it. After rereading the file, he found several items that were troubling.
For starters, he learned that the applicant's father was a retired general from Pakistan. "I went ahead and ran his name through the Automated Case System and came up with several hits," Cole says in an exclusive interview with me. It turns out he had at one time been the subject of an FBI investigation, an alarming piece of information that was somehow overlooked in the preliminary background check on the applicant. The bureau had opened a case file on her father in the 1980s, when he was the military attaché stationed at Pakistan's embassy in Washington. Having worked that particular target, Cole knew that the military attachés assigned there doubled as intelligence officers. And he also knew that Pakistan's military intelligence was in bed with the Taliban, as well as al-Qaida. In fact, its officers introduced Osama bin Laden to Taliban leaders.
Cole stumbled on another alarming piece of information that gave him great pause about the applicant. Her father, who at the time was not a U.S. citizen, spent six months of the year living in the United States and the other six months living in Pakistan. "He¹s got a lot of friends that are still there in military intelligence, and he more than likely talks to them frequently, living there as he does six months out of the year," Cole says.

Columbia has been a frequent target, no doubt because of the presence of the late Edward Said on its faculty. 'One can be sure that any public statement in support of the Palestinian people by the pre-eminent literary critic Edward Said will elicit hundreds of emails, letters and journalistic accounts that call on us to denounce Said and to either sanction or fire him,' Jonathan Cole, its former provost, reported.
