He also supervised the division’s Evidence Response Team and Hazardous Materials Response Team. In August 2004, he was temporarily assigned to Baghdad, Iraq, where he served as the FBI’s Deputy On-Scene Commander in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Mr. Fowler was promoted to ASAC of the FBI’s Chicago Division in August 2005, assigned to lead the operations of the division’s Counterterrorism Program, which includes the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
