JTTF's Tommy Corrigan Needs Your Help; Bone Marrow Testing DatesI first met Tommy Corrigan in 2008, when I was working on a documentary about American jihadists who were supporting the war in Bosnia. Since then, he has picked up the phone for me many times, answering a series of increasingly obscure questions that would test the patience of most people.
But then, he's detail-oriented. Many of you already know his name. Corrigan is a former detective with the FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force. He played a crucial role investigating the World Trade Center bombing and its aftermath, including a plot to blow up New York City landmarks that was thwarted thanks to the JTTF's efforts. He spent years after investigating Al Qaeda until he retired to open a pub on Long Island.
Corrigan and friend Matt Curran are in need of bone marrow transplants. The Marrow Registry is holding two testing sessions in New York and Long Island to look for compatible donors.
The test is fast and painless, but it can help save a life. If you're in the New York area, please stop by one of these locations to be added to the registry:

"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
