Steve Neavling

Christopher M. Piehota, special agent in charge of the FBI office in Buffalo, will leave soon to become director of the Terrorists Screening Center in Washington D.C. , the Buffalo News reports.

“To be honest, it’s one of the first lines of defense in our national security,” he said of the screening center, a multiagency organization known for the “Terrorist Watchlist.”

The center was created a few years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack.

Piehota worked at the center before and helped develop and maintain a database of suspected terrorists and the no-fly list.
