Thomas Nicoletti, Special Advisor to the Chairman
Thomas E. Nicoletti retired as a Federal Bureau of Investigation Supervisory Special Agent after 25 years of exceptional service.Nicoletti's professional Law Enforcement career launched after serving for over 5 years as a United States Marine Corps Captain in the elite Force Reconnaissance Companies. Following a SE Asia tour, Tom conducted and later planned Unconventional and Counter-Terrorist Operations world-wide as a member of both US and Allied Special Operations task forces.
Appointed as a United States Secret Service Special Agent, Nicoletti participated in hundreds of Head of State Protective Operations, served on the Vice-Presidential Protective detail, and was an original member of the New York Division Counter Assault Team.
Recruited to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Tom's Investigative and Managerial expertise developed within the secretive Counter-Terrorist Division; culminating in his appointment as the Supervisor's of both the storied New York Joint Terrorist Task Force and the elite undercover Special Operations Group.
In addition to his numerous Investigative accomplishments and formal recognition for continuous exceptional performance, Nicoletti was nominated as the Team Leader of the Washington, DC based SWAT Team, the youngest Special Agent to serve in this position. Based upon his operational performance and unprecedented training experience, Tom was appointed as the original Assault Team Leader of the FBI's storied Hostage Rescue Team (HRT).
Nicoletti then entered the International Counter-Terrorist arena, operating throughout the Middle east and South East Asia conducting sensitive Intelligence and Counter-Terrorist operations. After 25 years of FBI service, Tom spent two years as a Supervisor developing the operational tactics and training within the fledgling Federal Air Marshal Service.
After retiring from active Federal service, Nicoletti then spent 4 years as a Security Contractor to several US Government agencies, operating in both Iraq and Afghanistan. wo of his most rewarding experiences were supervising the training and development of President Karzai's Afghan Presidential Protective Service, and the training and mentoring of the Iraqi SWAT and national Emergency Response Units.

The memo shows several high-ranking FBI officials were involved in approving the approach to the ABC reporter, including Supervisory Special Agent Thomas Nicoletti and Thomas Pickard, then a special agent in charge of the FBI's New York office who eventually would rise to the No. 2 job in the bureau.
Nicoletti was reportedly hired by ABC after his retirement from the FBI, working as a consultant for the network's entertainment division on a movie about the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. He eventually resigned to protest the movie's portrayal of the tragedy.
Nicoletti could not be reached for comment.
A Tragedy of No Importance, 15 April 2005 [cached]
Nicoletti looked the way an agent is supposed to look, square-jawed and solid, right out of Hollywood.
Nicoletti stood in the same spot for the whole interview, a solid hour.Then he picked up the piece of shrapnel.
Nicoletti pulled out his card, and scrawled this on the back:
ON APRIL 17, 1997,Tom Nicoletti and another FBI agent, Peter Hoffman, flew in to Phnom Penh.
Nicoletti and Hoffman quickly focused on Hun Sen's bodyguard unit, which by March 1997 had emerged as a private army of 1500 men, under the de facto control of Hun Sen's lieutenant, Hing Bun Heang.
Over dinner, Hoffman and Nicoletti offered advice to the Cambodian police officials, led by General Teng Savong, about how they should handle their own ongoing investigation.
Nicoletti, who had previously noted that the Cambodian team had come up with nothing, told them that they must blame the military units whose chief had said they were ordered out to the park by Hun Sen's cabinet.He told General Savong that Hun Sen's bodyguards had let the throwers escape.You have to mention it in your report, Nicoletti told him.
"What can I say?"
Hoffman and Taister left Cambodia the next day, Nicoletti soon after.
But the real reason the FBI agents left was that just as they were assembling the evidence pointing toward Hun Sen's inner circle, Nicoletti got the word: The agents were targeted for assassination by the Khmer Rouge.
Quinn (who retired from the State Department when his Cambodia posting ended) told us that the threats were real, but insists that Nicoletti had already come to his house to tell him that the investigation was complete.
Quinn also said that it was Nicoletti who told him about the warnings, not the other way around, and that it was the FBI chief in Bangkok who pulled the agents out, not the ambassador in Phnom Penh who pushed.
A spokeswoman in the Los Angeles office, where Nicoletti was transferred, said that he would not be permitted to speak about this or any other case.He has ignored repeated entreaties to discuss it.
Nicoletti left the FBI to work in the federal air marshall program after September 11, 2001.

In administrative notes to their witness ..., 24 Aug 2010 [cached]
In administrative notes to their witness interview records, FBI Special Agents Thomas Nicoletti and Paul Hoffman frequently wrote that many of the informants "appeared highly reliable," or "appeared credible and fearful of the situation.
Dozens of planned FBI witness interviews were abandoned after Bangkok Legal Attache Ralph Horton, the FBI's representative to Thailand and Cambodia, ordered Mr Nicoletti, then the only bureau representative in Cambodia, to leave Cambodia "on the next available flight."
