A former deputy homeland security adviser to President George W. Bush has been named counterterrorism chief for the New York Police Department, officials said. Richard Falkenrath, who served at the White House until May 2004 before becoming a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, "brings outstanding and impressive academic credentials to this important post," Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said in a statement Monday. Falkenrath will spearhead the police department's aggressive strategy for protecting the city, which Kelly says remains atop terrorists' list of potential targets.
