He joined the U.S. Navy and became a Captain who has served as Head of International Law at the Naval War College. He also worked as a diplomat at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Italy, and as Chief of Litigation for the U.S. Navy.[1]

9/11

On August 28, 2001, as head of the FBI’s national security law unit Bowman refused to seek a special warrant for a search of Zacarias Moussaoui’s belongings before the 9/11 attacks.

In 2003 FBI Director Robert Mueller personally awarded Marion (Spike) Bowman with a presidential citation for "exceptional performance" and cash bonus of approximately 25 percent of his salary. The award comes shortly after a 9/11 Congressional Inquiry report saying Bowman’s unit gave Minneapolis FBI agents “inexcusably confused and inaccurate information” that was “patently false."[2]

He also thwarted FBI investigations into the anthrax attacks on Congress.[3]
