‘Psychiatry is a tool for psychiatry’: Former FBI agent speaks about her new role

A former FBI agent who oversaw the investigation into the 2005 Oklahoma City bombing has left her position with the FBI.

Natasha Anderson, the FBI’s forensic psychologist, took over as a special agent in charge of the bureau’s Oklahoma City field office in August.

She will not be retained by the FBI in any capacity, according to FBI spokeswoman Catherine Crump.

Anderson was assigned to the FBI field office at the time of the bombing and became the bureau chief of investigations in the field office, the bureau said.

She had previously worked in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Department of Justice and the U.S. Secret Service.

Anderson is the first of the FBI special agents to step down.
