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

LNG ship attack a potential disaster
Full Story

WASHINGTON - A terrorist attack on a tanker loaded with liquefied natural gas could cause massive damage a third of a mile away and could send a vapor cloud billowing more than 1.5 miles, government scientists say.

With the the nation clamoring for more natural gas, policy-makers are trying to figure out how to safely import large quantities of liquefied natural gas or LNG.

There must be some policy that requires them to immediately say "it's not terrorism" then assess the situation. It's probably called the "move along sheeple" policy. Argggg.

At Godzilla's post 2034 there's a link to Jill's site containing a machine translated Arabic forum written by some foreign guy who had just posted for the first time at FreeRepublic.

I translated the beginning of his story.

What he actually posted at FR was something different (also linked there) and was written in such bad English, (i.e. talking about "earthquicks", and beaches filled with nude people being the cause of the tsunami, etc.) and sounded so ridiculous, that it started off a long and humorous thread.

He, however, was not at all amused and in fact got very insulted. He then (on this Arabic forum) threatened each FReeper who had posted a joke about him, which is probably why this ended up at Homeland Security.

Congress passes `doomsday' plan
By Noelle Straub
Sunday, January 9, 2005

WASHINGTON - With no fanfare, the U.S. House has passed a controversial doomsday provision that would allow a handful of lawmakers to run Congress if a terrorist attack or major disaster killed or incapacitated large numbers of congressmen.

     ``I think (the new rule) is terrible in a whole host of ways - first, I think it's unconstitutional,'' said Norm Ornstein, a counselor to the independent Continuity of Government Commission, a bipartisan panel created to study the issue. ``It's a very foolish thing to do, I believe, and the way in which it was done was more foolish.''

     But supporters say the rule provides a stopgap measure to allow the government to continue functioning at a time of national crisis.

     GOP House leaders pushed the provision as part of a larger rules package that drew attention instead for its proposed ethics changes, most of which were dropped.

     Usually, 218 lawmakers - a majority of the 435 members of Congress - are required to conduct House business, such as passing laws or declaring war.

     But under the new rule, a majority of living congressmen no longer will be needed to do business under ``catastrophic circumstances.''

     Instead, a majority of the congressmen able to show up at the House would be enough to conduct business, conceivably a dozen lawmakers or less.

     The House speaker would announce the number after a report by the House Sergeant at Arms. Any lawmaker unable to make it to the chamber would effectively not be counted as a congressman.

     The circumstances include ``natural disaster, attack, contagion or similar calamity rendering Representatives incapable of attending the proceedings of the House.''

     The House could be run by a small number of lawmakers for months, because House vacancies must be filled by special elections. Governors can make temporary appointments to the Senate.

     Rep. Brian Baird (D-Wash.), one of few lawmakers active on the issue, argued the rule change contradicts the U.S. Constitution, which states that ``a majority of each (House) shall constitute a quorum to do business.

     ``Changing what constitutes a quorum in this way would allow less than a dozen lawmakers to declare war on another nation,'' Baird said.

This type of release always leads me to more questions.
What type of RPG? Can you say 'Komet"?
TNT? What type? Are you sure it is regular "TNT"? Where could it have come from?
As for those detained, were they from the same family?clan?tribe?economic unit? Do they all have the same accent? Do any of them have any scars or tattoos?
A twelve man team sounds about right.

PREVENTING TERRORIST ATTACK:
How You Can Help.


08/02/04


This is a message that bears repeating, no matter where you live in the world: Your assistance is needed in preventing terrorist acts.


It's a fact that certain kinds of activities can indicate terrorist plans that are in the works, especially when they occur at or near high profile sites or places where large numbers of people gather--like government buildings, military facilities, utilities, bus or train stations, major public events. If you see or know about suspicious activities, like the ones listed below, please report them immediately to the proper authorities. In the United States, that means your closest Joint Terrorist Task Force, located in an FBI Field Office. In other countries, that means your closest law enforcement/counterterrorism agency.


Surveillance: Are you aware of anyone video recording or monitoring activities, taking notes, using cameras, maps, binoculars, etc., near key facilities/events?


Suspicious Questioning: Are you aware of anyone attempting to gain information in person, by phone, mail, email, etc., regarding a key facility or people who work there?


Tests of Security: Are you aware of any attempts to penetrate or test physical security or procedures at a key facility/event?


Acquiring Supplies: Are you aware of anyone attempting to improperly acquire explosives, weapons, ammunition, dangerous chemicals, uniforms, badges, flight manuals, access cards or identification for a key facility/event or to legally obtain items under suspicious circumstances that could be used in a terrorist attack?


Suspicious Persons: Are you aware of anyone who does not appear to belong in the workplace, neighborhood, business establishment or near a key facility/event?


"Dry Runs": Have you observed any behavior that appears to be preparation for a terrorist act, such as mapping out routes, playing out scenarios with other people, monitoring key facilities/events, timing traffic lights or traffic flow, or other suspicious activities?


Deploying Assets: Have you observed abandoned vehicles, stockpiling of suspicious materials, or persons being deployed near a key facility/event?


If you answered yes to any of the above...if you have observed any suspicious activity that may relate to terrorism...again, please contact the Joint Terrorist Task Force or law enforcement/counterterrorism agency closest to you immediately. Your tip could save the lives of innocent people, just like you and yours.

RELIEF ORGANIZATION TAKES STEPS TO COUNTER SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN IN WAKE OF TSUNAMI

By Jeremy Reynalds
Special Correspondent for ASSIST News Service

FEDERAL WAY, WA (ANS) -- The devastation caused by the tsunami has left thousands of children orphaned or separated from their families and more than 100,000 in refugee camps.

Child advocacy organization Plan International ( http://www.plan-international.org/wherewework/asia/tsunami04/protection/?view=textonly )  has reported that reports of “criminal exploitation” of tsunami victims have emerged recently. Although the stories are unsubstantiated, governments are being urged to act.

As a result, the Indonesian government has banned children under 16 being transferred from Aceh. Sri Lanka’s National Child Protection Authority has directed people to report unaccompanied children to the authorities while the government is compiling a register of orphaned children.

According to Plan International, there are currently no reliable figures of the number of children who survived but are now separated from their family. And child protection experts in general agree, saying it is still too early to know the full extent of the devastation.

However, a World Vision official said the youngest survivors of the disaster will be at greater risk of neglect, disease, and sexual and physical abuse, unless aid workers and local officials take special precautions to protect them.

“Children are among the hardest hit by this catastrophe,” said Joe Mettimano, World Vision's senior policy advisor for child protection, in a press release. “The pictures of dazed and grieving children wandering around the streets underscores the extraordinary vulnerability they face in this disaster.”

In response to reports of children missing from hospitals and emergency shelters, the government of Sri Lanka has issued warnings about the dangers of inadequate procedures in the movement, treatment, and care of children. Child protection experts fear some children are being trafficked for work or for sexual exploitation, World Vision reported in a press release, and are recommending that relief organizations set up “child-friendly” shelters to keep children safe.

World Vision is establishing these centers across the region as part of its relief effort. For example, in Indonesia, World Vision reported it is setting up 20 children’s centers that will include special tents next to temporary shelters where traumatized children can receive psychological support.

The typical temporary shelter has a very large number of children and adults together, making it easy for children to become separated from family members, World Vision reported. If separated, children's specific needs are neglected, placing them at risk of missing out on receiving life-saving aid such as vaccines, clean water and food, and leaving them vulnerable to mistreatment.

“After surviving the greatest tragedy of their lives, these children are incredibly vulnerable,” Mettimano said in the release. “It is the job of relief organizations and child protection experts, like World Vision, to make sure these children are properly cared for and protected from greater suffering.”

"More Reports of Lasers Shot Into Cockpits"

Tuesday, January 11, 2005

WASHINGTON — 

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "Cathy Viray, spokeswoman for the FBI in Los Angeles, said the bureau is looking into a report that a green light was beamed onto the nose of an aircraft last week as it was taking off from the Burbank airport.

"It's happening all over the place," Viray said Tuesday.

Beginning on Christmas night, there were reports from all over the country of lasers pointed at aircraft cockpits: in Cleveland, Houston, Colorado Springs, Colo., Medford, Ore., and Nashville, Tenn. Many of the reports described a green beam."
