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.

Threat Matrix - Daily Terrorism Threat
Threat Matrix: U.S. Terrorism
Expert: Al-Qaida Has Presence In South Florida
Full Story

MIRAMAR, Fla. -- Despite the massive federal, state and local law enforcement effort to stop terrorists from entering the United States, there is no strong evidence of how well it is working.

Many experts are concerned that there are plenty of terrorists or sympathizers already in the country who have been here for years. Some are even citizens.

The Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers were the first wave and now the increasing number of arrests seems to signal a second wave of terrorism in South Florida.

"Threat Matrix is a politically incorrect zone"
From TM'er and Freeper ~Oorang~



Threat Matrix : Code of Conduct
Please pay close attention:
PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES

There will be NO bashing any mods, it will be taken private or there will be NO MORE Threat Matrix !!! That comes from the top!

Please everyone here review the following rules, they are not posted just for fun, they must be adhered to!

Do lead by example - Nothing improves a forum more than posters who reason sharply, write well, and have some perspective about it all. Be one of them.

Do preview - Preview twice, post once. And, ahem, close your HTML tags before you hit the reply button.

Do keep it clean - A bruise or two between Freepers is tolerable, but refrain from abusive attacks, engaging in senseless flame wars, and using profane language. Considering the range of topics we discuss, it's hard to be a family site, but that's what we aim for when at all possible.

Do "take it to the Alley" - The Alley is a public chat room. A link to it is provided on the latest posts page. Invite people there if you want to talk things over or settle a score, so to speak, off site.

Do use common sense - If you read a post that sounds too good or strange to be true, it probably is.

Do stay on topic - FR has varied topics for whatever you need to say

Do keep "vanity" posts to a minimum - Free Republic is primarily a place to discuss news, articles, and editorials. Vanity posts, creations of the poster him or herself, should meet a high standard of quality before one is even considered worthy of posting.

Don't jump threads - If you get involved in an argument in one thread, it's considered poor manners to restart the previous argument in the middle of an unrelated thread.

Don't play games - Don't represent yourself as another person, create or use another screen name to avoid a revocation of posting privileges, misrepresent the site or your role in it

We cannot stress the following enough:
{{{Don't be a whiner - If you really, really find Free Republic or Threat Matrix not to your liking, let the webmaster know directly (jimrob@psnw.com), learn to live with it, or move along.}}}

I left out the Arabic links from this thread, but added a link to the top.. I am in the process of changing that page up a bit, and did not want the older version with the new thread... I'm not sure if I should keep including it with the first post anyway, don't know if people enjoy it.

I'm also doing some more organizing of things behind the scenes, some of the other links up top may be unavailable from time to time.

Also...

I know we have some people who are good with graphics here. I would like to replace both the top TM images at some point in the near future. I am moderately able in that dept., but not nearly as much so as others. If anyone has time in the next few weeks/months, and decides to try something out, let me know... always happy to use freeper ideas here.

I was also thinking it might be helpful to break up TM by month in the future, especially at the rate of current posting. It would make for smaller threads, and easier recollection of data. Any thoughts on this would be welcome as well.

Seventy-five years after the death of his creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes is popping up in historical locales from Hiroshima to Holocaust-haunted Europe in recent portrayals by literary-minded US writers."

Travel Warning
United States Department of State
Bureau of Consular Affairs
Washington, DC 20520

This information is current as of today, Fri Jun 03 2005 00:40:39 GMT-0700.

UZBEKISTAN

June 2, 2005

This Travel Warning is being issued to remind U.S. citizens to the potential for terrorist actions in Uzbekistan. The Department of State has authorized the departure of non-emergency personnel and all eligible family members of U. S. Embassy personnel and urges all U.S. citizens to defer non-essential travel to Uzbekistan. This Travel Warning supercedes the Public Announcement of May 27, 2005.

The United States Government has received information that terrorist groups are planning attacks, possibly against U.S. interests, in Uzbekistan in the very near future. Due to the nature of the threat, the Department of State has authorized the departure from Uzbekistan of non-emergency personnel and all eligible family members of the U.S. Embassy in Tashkent. American citizens currently in Uzbekistan should consider departing Uzbekistan via available commercial options.

Supporters of terrorist groups such as the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, Al-Qaida, the Islamic Jihad Union, and the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement are active in the region. These groups have expressed anti-U.S. sentiments and may also attempt to target U.S. Government or private interests in Uzbekistan. The Department of State urges Americans in Uzbekistan to exercise extreme caution, including avoiding large crowds, celebrations, and places where Westerners generally congregate. In the past, these groups have been known to conduct kidnappings, assassinations and suicide bombings.

Uzbekistan experienced a wave of terrorist violence in 2004. Three suicide bombings occurred in July 2004 in Tashkent, including one outside the U.S. Embassy. Other targets included the Israeli Embassy and the Uzbekistani Prosecutor General’s Office. The Islamic Jihad Union released a statement claiming responsibility for these attacks.

Multiple attacks also occurred in Tashkent and Bukhara in late March and early April 2004. These attacks used suicide bombers, mainly focused at police and Uzbek private and commercial facilities. In late July, approximately 15 people pled guilty in an Uzbekistan court to charges related to the attacks. The Islamic Jihad Union also claimed responsibility for these operations.

In 2003, the U.S. Embassy received information indicating that terrorist groups had planned attacks against hotels in Uzbekistan frequented by Westerners, as well as against other institutions affiliated with or representing foreign interests.

Terrorist groups do not distinguish between official and civilian targets. As security is increased at official U.S. facilities, terrorists and their sympathizers seek softer targets. These may include facilities where Americans and other foreigners congregate or visit, such as residential areas, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, hotels, outdoor recreation events, and resorts.

In addition, on May 13, armed militants stormed a local prison, released its prisoners, and then took control of the regional administration and other government buildings. By the end of the day fighting broke out between government forces and the militants. There were reports indicating that several hundred civilians died in the ensuing violence. There were no reports of U.S. citizens who were affected by these events.

Although the city is reportedly calm at the present time and all registered American citizens in Andijon have reported with the Embassy, Americans are advised to limit unnecessary travel to the Andijon province due to small pockets of unrest. Some U.S.-sponsored or supported humanitarian organizations have decided at this time not to return to Andijon.

Other U.S. government agencies continue to operate and travel normally throughout the region. According to the Uzbek Ministry of Foreign Affairs, border crossings and all airports, except in Andijon, are currently open.

The U.S. Embassy in Tashkent continues to employ heightened security precautions. U.S. citizens should report any unusual activity to local authorities and then inform the Embassy.

The Uzbek Government maintains travel restrictions on large parts of the Surkhandarya province bordering Afghanistan, including the border city of Termez. Foreign citizens intending to travel to this region must obtain a special permission card from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Internal Affairs or Uzbek embassies and consulates abroad.

Americans traveling to or remaining in Uzbekistan despite this Travel Warning are strongly urged to register with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate through the State Department's travel registration website, https://travelregistration.state.gov, and to obtain updated information on travel and security within Uzbekistan. Americans without Internet access may register directly with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. The U.S. Embassy in Tashkent may close temporarily for general business from time to time to review its security posture. The U.S. Embassy in Uzbekistan is located at 82 Chilanzarskaya St., Tashkent, Uzbekistan 700115. The telephone number is 998-71-120-5450. The fax number is 998-71-120-6335. The website is http://www.usembassy.uz.

Travelers should also consult the Department of State's latest Consular Information Sheet for Uzbekistan, the Central Asia Regional Public Announcement, and Worldwide Caution Public Announcement at http://travel.state.gov. American citizens may also obtain up-to-date information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States or Canada, and 202-501-4444 from overseas.

"Student sues after Bible study banned
Claims principal abruptly interrupted discussion during recess"
Posted: June 3, 2005

© 2005 WorldNetDaily.com

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "A 10-year-old elementary school student filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against district officials for barring students from reading and discussing the Bible during recess.

Luke Whitson and his parents, represented by the Alliance Defense Fund, claim Principal Cathy Summa at Karns Elementary School in the Knox County district in Tennessee violated constitutional rights by stopping a playground Bible study.

The lawsuit alleges: "Principal Summa abruptly interrupted certain fourth-grade students while they were in the midst of a Bible discussion during recess, demanded that they stop their activity at once, put their Bibles away and from that point forward, cease from bringing their Bibles to school.""

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "More on this case from the Times Online, with thanks to Jeffrey Imm:

AN AL-QAEDA suspect linked to the September 11 atrocities and the ricin plotters in London can be extradited to Spain, a court ruled yesterday.
Hedi Ben Yousseff Boudhiba, a Tunisian, is an alleged associate of Kamel Bourgass, the terrorist serving life for the murder of a British policeman and the plan to make chemical weapons.

Mr Boudhiba, 45, has been named in a Spanish indictment as a key figure in a cell that helped the 9/11 planners in Hamburg and, more recently, recruited men to fight in Iraq."

"UK Ricin plot informant faces trial in Algeria"

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "What made him give this information? Unfortunately, the story doesn't say. "Ricin plot informant faces trial in Algeria," from Reuters, with thanks to Jeffrey Imm:

ALGIERS - A suspected al Qaeda agent who divulged a plot to attack Britain is due to go on trial on terror-related charges in Algeria on Wednesday, officials said.
Mohamed Meguerba, 37, was arrested in Algeria in December 2002 after jumping bail in Britain, where he had given police information in the biggest British terrorism case since the September 11 attacks in the United States.

Information he gave interrogators led to the arrests of 100 people in an anti-terrorism sweep in Britain. One of them, Kamel Bourgass, was convicted last week of a plot to launch chemical and bomb attacks.

Meguerba faces accusations of being a member of a terrorist organisation operating abroad and of one active in Algeria. He also faces charges of using fake documents and other more minor crimes....

Fearing extradition, Meguerba told Algerian authorities that plotters in Britain were keeping deadly ricin poison in a skin-cream jar and planned to smear it on door handles. British police did not find the poison but found recipes to make it."

"THE REAL IMPLICATIONS OF POSSESSION OF AIR CAPABILITY BY LTTE"
by Commodore RS Vasan IN (Retd)

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "1. The whole of last month has been an eventful one for a small illegal Air Force.With all the publicity and the kind of analysis that seems to have gone with the acquisition of the two fixed wing aircraft and possibly a couple of helicopters many theories have surfaced. Well, many of the flying clubs in the country would have more assets than the inventory in question and no questions would be raised. Yet the acquisition of such air assets by the most successful Guerilla outfit and a declared Terrorist organisation has alarmed observers around the world. If the Prime Minister of India himself expressed concern at this development.it shows the kind of grudging respect that LTTE seems to get from different quarters including India . The Foreign Minister of India likewise was alarmed at this development.

2. The addition of a new capability itself would have not been so worrisome, but when coupled with the proven intent of the LTTE, which has its own suicide squads; it is indeed a matter of concern."

"exit Syrian from deporting bricks and termination first to final liquidations of glass of the scientist started!" <> When I hear of things that are 'glass' I think nuclear, isn't glass created at the blast site? Bricks, made me think of "Yellow Cake", an ore that is very rich, for making bombs. I think it is said to come in bricks, some where or other I read that. 2nd choice for bricks is narcotics. Above is about all I know on the subject, but it jumped at me while reading your posts, so I brought it over here to post from the last thread.

Below is the clipped message from #30 above, my education continues, learned not to put < marks on quotes, it does
not print them....LOL

"exit Syrian from deporting bricks and termination first to final
liquidations of glass of the scientist started!"

Final liquidations of glass sound clearly nuclear (many in FR have
spoken heatedly about turning Iran to glass if they start something)
...out of Syria from dropping/unloading at port "bricks" (all bricks are
radioactive by nature to one degree or another, the "heaviness" of the
brick is an oblique reference to radioactive isotopes possibly
)...deporting could reference those water ports we were all watching a
while back..."termination first"... deadly detonation with a follow-up
blast. For example, in the Clancy story Sum of All Fears I think the
blast that hit Baltimore was only the small detonation part of what
could have been a much bigger explosion.

I wasn't buying this and I see the Pro-Med Moderator did not either...granny . COLI O157, RELIGIOUS CAMP - USA (OREGON) (02) ********************************************* A ProMED-mail post ProMED-mail is a program of the International Society for Infectious Diseases [1] Date: Thu, 02 Jun 2005 09:00:51 -0400 From: Philip Berger Source: Oregon Department of Health Services/Public Health web site: [31 May 2005] [edited] DHS news release 31 May 2005 Drinking water found to be likely Camp Yamhill disease source --------------------- State and local public health officials have identified water contamination as the likely source of last week's disease outbreak at Camp Yamhill in Yamhill County, which sickened more than 50 people. Mel Kohn, M.D., state epidemiologist in the Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS), said the camp's water treatment system, which draws water from the North Yamhill River, may have been overwhelmed by surface water run-off caused by recent heavy rainfall. Kohn said it appears that more than one bacterial contaminant was in the water. "The laboratory has confirmed cases of both E.coli O157 and Campylobacter, both of which cause diarrhea," Kohn said. "Those who were infected suffered varying degrees of illness, but we are glad to say that most have recovered." Kohn said that no food item was implicated and that the large number of infections and the 2 different bacteria types makes food an unlikely culprit. "The camp is planning to upgrade its drinking water treatment system," Kohn said. "We are providing technical assistance to the camp to help evaluate their water system and recommend improvement options. "Meanwhile, the camp is actively working to correct the situation. They're taking steps to obtain clean municipal water and will be able to reopen this weekend," Kohn said. Kohn said the camp director has arranged to bring in drinking water from an approved outside source and will continue to do so until treatment improvements are identified and completed. The investigation, which began last week, involved DHS and 6 county health departments--Clackamas, Lane, Marion, Multnomah, Polk and Yamhill. Exposure to the bacteria was identified as having occurred between 17 and 20 May [2005]. Public health staff interviewed more than 90 students and adults attending camp during that period. (Contact: Bonnie Widerburg (503) 731-4180 Technical contact: Mel Kohn, M.D., DHS (503) 731-4023) -- Philip Berger US Environmental Protection Agency Washington DC 20460 ****** [2] Date: Wed 1 Jun 2005 From: ProMED-mail Source: Register Guard, Eugene, OR, USA [edited] Camp's fouled water likely source of illnesses ----------------------------------------------- Contaminated water is the likely source of a disease outbreak at a Yamhill County camp that sickened more than 50 people, including 7 people from Lane County, public health officials said Tue 31 May 2005. The camp's water treatment system, which draws water from the North Yamhill River, may have been overwhelmed by surface water run-off caused by recent heavy rainfall, said Dr. Mel Kohn, state epidemiologist. Lab tests confirmed the water was contaminated not only with _E. coli_ O157 but also _Campylobacter_, both of which cause diarrhea. No food items have been implicated. Campers at the Christian outdoor school camp were exposed 17 to 20 May 2005, and included 6 students and an adult chaperone from Eugene Christian School. The camp is planning to upgrade its drinking water treatment system. -- ProMED-mail [The water supply appears to be implicated in the transmission of enteric disease here. If this indeed is the case, one would think that enteric illness should have occurred during more than a single period. The initial posting suggested that only the 17-20 May 2005 group was affected. This posting states that more than 50 individuals were sickened, but we do not know how many had _E. coli_ O157, how many (if any) had campylobacteriosis, whether any other pathogens were identified in victims and whether all were from the initially implicated group. - Mod.LL]
