Threat Matrix: Daily Terror Threat - Thread Twenty-Two

Threat Matrix: Daily Terror Threat
Thread Twenty-Two (Index)

The Threat Matrix

The title refers to a daily report given to the president of the United States detailing the most serious terrorist threats against the country. To tackle those threats, the government has formed a top-notch task force to infiltrate the terror cells and cut off the danger.

"Every morning, the president receives a list of the top ten terrorist threats - this list is known as the threat matrix."

We here at FR are trying to be in conjunction with the daily reports around the world that involve threats. We try to provide a storehouse of information that takes hours of research.

YOU be the judge and get informed!
Threat Matrix - Daily Terrorism Threat

Connect these dots, now
Full Story
"We should have secured the Mexican border."

That could be the pitiful lament we hear from negligent U.S. officials if Al Qaeda pulls off an attack on the United States using weapons of mass destruction smuggled across our southern frontier.

Were that horrendous event to happen, leaders in the administration and Congress would be justly hit with the same question that was perhaps unjustly cast at them and their predecessors after the unprecedented Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks: Why didn't they connect the dots?

"In a purely strategic sense, waiting until Iran has nukes would make a lot of sense. Why attack the U.S. in a big way, thus giving us an excuse to take out Iran's nukes, when all they have to do is wait a few more months? If I were Iran, I would put all the pressure I could on Al Qaida to hold off."

Babbin and Eagleburger were on MSNBC last night and both confirmed the existence of a rumor (not its veracity) that Iran has obtained 3 nuclear warheads on the black market.

I am not sure if this is a rehashing of the old rumors that they acquired 3-4 tactical warheads from Kazakhstan in the 1993-1994 time frame or if this is a new story.

In any case, the public time frame on indigenous nuclear production is based on the *known* facilities. The North Korean example shows that the known facilities are merely the iceburg's tip of a clandestine manufacturing infrastructure. Before the existence of the covert uranium enrichment program came to light, most experts put the time frame in years, not months. I assume enrichment has been proceeding for some time at underground sites unknown to the international community.

My guess is that the concerns Powell expressed with regard to warhead design are connected to their satellite launch scheduled to take place sometime in the next few weeks or months. Like the North Korean missile test of 8/31/98, it will seek to demonstrate a capability to deliver a nuclear payload to the continental United States (by missiles in addition to martyrs).

The UBL pre-election threat was aired (not delivered) less than 48 hours after the lunar eclipse.

It is difficult to establish correlations when we are only able to observe successful attacks while attempted attacks that are unsuccessful are unknowable.

The doctrine of the "hidden Imam" is also known as the "occultation".
The "grazing effect" will be seen in Texas - - outside San Antonio and just south of Houston.
The opposite of an occultation (a concealment) is an apocalypse (a revelation).

German police raid 30 sites linked to jihadist group


From the BBC, with thanks to Susan:

German police have raided more than 30 sites believed to be connected to a banned Islamic organisation, al-Aqsa. The raids happened a day after the country's top administrative court upheld a 2002 ban on the group.

The German government alleges that the charity raises funds for the Palestinian militant movement, Hamas.


Al-Aqsa, which says it raises funds to alleviate poverty, had won permission to continue fundraising on a temporary basis last year.


The raids were conducted on 34 sites in Berlin, Bremen, Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia.


The Interior Ministry says the police seized "extensive" materials.


The German Interior Minister, Otto Schily, said the raids had targeted sites connected with two groups suspected of taking over from al-Aqsa in 2002.


He said if the suspicions were confirmed, he would ban the new groups as well.

"German police foil 'terrorist' plot to kill Iraqi leader"

3 December 2004


ARTICLE SNIPPET: "BERLIN - An apparent bid by extremists to assassinate Iraqi interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi on Friday was foiled after police arrested three suspected Iraqi terrorists, German Federal Prosecutor Kay Nehm said Friday.

"We saw a considerable threat to Allawi," said Nehm at a news conference in Karlsruhe, adding: "There were increasing indications an attack was being planned."

German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder met Allawi in Berlin amid tight security after police earlier on Friday stormed nine apartments and business in Berlin, Stuttgart and Augsburg, arresting three members of the banned terrorist group Ansar al-Islam.

Nehm declined to say if those arrested had planned a bomb attack but he said telephone taps had alerted authorities and that parts of Allawi's two-day visit had been cancelled."

To me it appears that Putin is slowly taking over any of the competition.

This with Yukos is said now to be taxes, but was rather personal in the beginning.

Maybe, get all the competition out of the country.

Threats HUMMMMMMMMMM

Russia ready to strick terrorist bases

MOSCOW: Russia said on Friday that it was prepared to launch cruise missile attacks against suspected terrorist bases outside its borders, with a top general warning that Moscow would use everything at its disposal for the attack.

“We will use long-range precision cruise missiles and bombs if we get such an order,” Russia’s air force chief Vladimir Mikhailov was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies. “We will use everything that is at our disposal.” Mikhailov did not specify which nations he had in mind or what sparked his warning.

Trucking company puts GPS technology in all its trucks to monitor drivers

Good story here about Los Alamos

SNIP: Two Missouri professors seeking ways to track civilian automobiles for General Motors have discovered a way to detect and conceivably even detonate so-called Improvised Explosive Devices," Soldiers for the Truth says. It sounds a lot like what the Army already has, in its Warlock series of radio frequency jammers.

Simply stated, the scientists have figured out a way to eavesdrop on the ether to detect ambient electronic noise floating around when the mad bombers set up their devices in preparation of setting off an ambush. Both the transmitter the insurgents need to send out a radio signal ordering the detonator to explode and the detonator itself, emit these radio signals.

Putin wants a man from Chechnya that we allowed to stay in the United States.

To me it appears that we are in the next one alone, if Putin arms our friends and enemies, then they won't be standing in line to cover our backs.

If you dig deep enough, you will find early ties to the terrorists in Russia, to the Russian government.

No, I am not smart enough to fill in all the blank spots, but all one needs to do is read todays news and ask why they are arming those who are against us.

After reading acsa.com (which I take sometimes with a grain of salt), I come to the conclusion that the actions of Musharif (sp?) should be closely watch. I'm sure that he is helping terrorists either by letting them get by with illegal activities, or actually supplies weapons (including WMD) to them. We have a very unusually relationship with Mush..."keep your friends close, and your enemies closer."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammed_bin_Laden

In 1968, Mohammed bin Laden was killed in a plane crash near San Antonio, Texas when Osama was only eleven-years-old.Following Mohammed bin Laden's death, his eldest sons, principally Salem bin Laden, renamed the organization, "Binladen Brothers for Contracting and Industry" and continued to expand their late father's company until it employed more than 40,000 people. In 1988, Salem bin Laden died when his ultra-light aircraft crashed after hitting power lines near an air park north of San Antonio, Texas.The "Saudi Binladin Group" as it is now known, is involved in construction, engineering, manufacturing, and telecommunications. Construction projects include airports, housing complexes, tunnels, and bridges. The group is also involved in city planning and real estate development. The Saudi Binladin Group is Egypt's largest private foreign company and negotiated with the Lebanese government to rebuild part of central Beirut under a US$50 million contract.

That OBL considers himself (as well as many others) the Mahdi is well understood. So far he has not availed himself to link that to celestial events, and there have been many here looking for that to happen.

In a purely strategic sense, waiting until Iran has nukes would make a lot of sense.

I can agree fully with this theory, especially in view of current events.

I agree about ACSA. Musharif is in a delicate position and may try to play both ends against the middle. As long as his military is loyal to him he can put the face forward as a WOT allie. But he can't go too far. However, if he allows the terrorists to seem like they are getting away with too much, India may get an ichy trigger finger which would be disasterous for him and Pakistan. Yes indeed, keep him VERY close.

Good points/comments. One of them was:

Babbin and Eagleburger were on MSNBC last night and both confirmed the existence of a rumor (not its veracity) that Iran has obtained 3 nuclear warheads on the black market.

I had not heard this before. If the rumor is true, it creates a strategic nightmare. As you know, the leadership of Iran has publicly stated that allah would be pleased to see 100 million Muslims die, if Israel were destroyed in the process. Mutual Assured Destruction does not seem very effective against this mindset.

Under this mindset, the only target that might deter a nuclear attack on Israel is Mecca. The only nation that would attack Mecca is Israel, and then only if Israel has been wiped out by a nuclear first strike.

Contrary to the hot blooded opinions of some Freepers, the United States would not destroy Mecca even if we were nuked. The only way the U.S. would destroy Mecca is if the war against terror becomes an all out war between all of Islam and the rest of the world. Even then we would probably hold back, hoping to win the war some other way.

When will Al Queda pull the trigger is the question???

All we can do is speculate (tied to celestial signs? the Iraq elections? Muslim "holy" days? Jewish or Christian holy days?). If our intel agencies knew for sure, we would probably also know enough other details that we could stop it.

I doubt we will get another Bin Laden tape, either. The next one is likely to be after the fact, or an "in five minutes" type of warning/gloat.

A sure sign that a huge attack is imminent would be if "someone" blows up the Dome of the Rock mosque. It would be blamed on Israel, of course, but would be such a perfect way to generate Muslim rage (and justification for the use of nukes) that Al Qaida could easily choose to do so itself. The building itself may not be considered "holy". Even if it is, they may feel the end justifies the means.

"I don't think it was sabotage but I'd like the investigators to finish their jobs," said Houston Fire Chief Terry Stone. "We're not ruling out anything."
