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
Threat Matrix: U.S. Terrorism
Home grown Islamists may hit US: FBI chief
Full Story

WASHINGTON -- The United States could be attacked by "home grown" Islamist terror groups, the FBI's chief has warned.

FBI Director Robert Mueller told the London Financial Times newspaper in an interview published Thursday that the United States could face attacks from "home-grown terrorism" very similar to the July 7 bombings in London that killed 52 people and wounded another 700, Mueller said.

When asked if the United States could face such attacks from "home-grown groups", Mueller answered emphatically: "Absolutely, it could," the Financial Times said.

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.}}}

Several Blasts Occur Almost Simultaneously in Bali; at Least 19 People Killed
http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=1175659

BALI, Indonesia Oct 1, 2005 — Bombs exploded almost simultaneously Saturday in two tourist areas of the Indonesian resort island of Bali, killing at least 19 people and wounding 51 others, police and hospital officials said.

The victims included at least two Americans.

The blasts at Jimbaran beach and a bustling outdoor shopping center in downtown Kuta "were clearly the work of terrorists," police Maj. Gen. Ansyaad Mbai, a top Indonesian anti-terrorism official, told The Associated Press.

Good afternoon Ian. Thanks for the ping and the new thread. As usual, NICE WORK!

Every thing's normal around my neck of the woods today. Found an interesting website about survival communities. With some of the things going on that we DO know about, it may become a very valid option.

Here's a link I found interesting. Contains nuclear targeting info and looks like a left over from the Y2K scare. Wouldn't you know, I right next to a nuke target - Mt. Weather (FEMA). I'm within the red ring that indicates 50% casualties. Depending on this crazy job situation of mine, I may relocate to a MUCH safer area if the opportunity presents itself. Anyway, here's the links:

This one contains the nuke targeting info and fallout predictions:
http://www.ki4u.com/nuclearsurvival/list.htm

Here's a list of survival communities by state:
http://www.ki4u.com/nuclearsurvival/states/aahonor.htm

I'm still browsing them myself. Thought this was an interesting site and wanted to pass it along.

Slow and laid back. Wife running errands. This evening we're going back out to SAM'S Club to restock and top off survival supplies. Then I'm taking her out to a nice steak dinner. I'm getting pretty nervous about the month of OCT. On the PLUS side, Florida's new expanded CASTLE DOCTRINE law takes effect today so I feel a little bit safer. Of course the liberals are all whining. This time, I find their diatribes too insignificant to respond to in light of a potential attack. They might find out the hard way that we were right and they're wrong....but it'll be too late.

October 1, 2005 -- Inside Israel ( www.InsideIsrael.com )

JERUSALEM — In the war with Palestinian terrorists, Israel is learning to follow the money.

What investigators have uncovered is the secret funneling of millions of dollars from Iran and Saudi Arabia to groups like Hamas in the West Bank.

The money played a major role in the five-year offensive, begun in September 2000, that accounted for more than 24,000 attacks by Palestinians on Israelis, including 142 homicide bombings.

Those bombings accounted for 510 Israeli deaths, or just over half the fatalities.

>> I'm getting pretty nervous about the month of OCT. <<

I am too Ex. I am to. Not because of the threats - we've been monitoring them for over a year now. What's making me nervous are all the public announcements about preparedness along side the threats.

I'm well stocked here. I'm also over top of 4 restaurants. Push comes to shove I'll raid them before dipping into my own supplies IF I'm able to stay put.

Sunset here is 6:54pm. Going to watch it from Bear's Den. It's only 20 minutes up the road, only a 1.5 mile hike in, easy parking, and over looks the ENTIRE Shenandoah Vally. It crystal clear today so it should be beautiful.

Biohazard Sensors Triggered-Mall Germ Levels Likely Not a Threat

Washington Post ^ | Saturday, October 1, 2005 | By Martin Weil and Susan Levine

Biohazard sensors showed the presence of small amounts of

potentially dangerous tularemia bacteriain the Mall area

last weekend as huge crowds assembled there, but health officials said they believed the levels were too low to be a threat.

Tularemia symptoms can appear between one and 14 days after exposure, but usually do so after three to five days.

Oooooh a_d HOW I envy you that sight!

I'm also over top of 4 restaurants. Push comes to shove I'll raid them before dipping into my own supplies IF I'm able to stay put.

That's Ragnar Benson thinking at it's best: Clean, cold, precise. I like it.

What's making me nervous are all the public announcements about preparedness along side the threats.

Funny thing...that's what is making ME nervous and they're not playing here in South Florida. I think that's because TPTB have determined that since our area is a cul-de sac and essentially a trap with little or no escape, don't start a panic. Your area has multiple escape routes. I also think TPTB want their families reminded to stock up and get ready to jump while daddy is at work at the Pentagon or White House or Capitol Hill.

Note: The following Worldwide Caution is an exact quote and is current. It was last updated August 2, 2005.
===

http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/pa/pa_1161.html

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE
Office of the Spokesman
This information is current as of today, Sat Oct 01 2005 12:28:24 GMT-0700.

Worldwide Caution

August 02, 2005


This Public Announcement updates information on the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against Americans and interests overseas. This supersedes the Worldwide Caution dated March 8, 2005 and expires on February 2, 2006.

The Department of State remains concerned about the continued threat of terrorist attacks, demonstrations and other violent actions against U.S. citizens and interests overseas. Americans are reminded that demonstrations and rioting can occur with little or no warning. Ongoing events in Iraq have resulted in demonstrations and associated violence in several countries; such events are likely to continue for the foreseeable future. Nation-wide elections in Afghanistan scheduled for mid-September may also trigger violent anti-American actions.

Current information suggests that al-Qa’ida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions, including Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics to include assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings and bombings. Extremists may elect to use conventional or non-conventional weapons, and target both official and private interests. The latter may include facilities where U.S. citizens and other foreigners congregate or visit, including residential areas, business offices, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, hotels and public areas.

In the wake of the July 2005 London bombings and the March 2004 train attacks in Madrid, Americans are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems. In addition, extremists may also select aviation and maritime services as possible targets.

U.S. citizens are strongly encouraged to maintain a high level of vigilance, be aware of local events, and take the appropriate steps to bolster their personal security. For additional information, please refer to “A Safe Trip Abroad” found at http://travel.state.gov.

U.S. Government facilities worldwide remain at a heightened state of alert. These facilities may temporarily close or periodically suspend public services to assess their security posture. In those instances, U.S. embassies and consulates will make every effort to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens. Americans abroad are urged to monitor the local news and maintain contact with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

As the Department continues to develop information on any potential security threats to U.S. citizens overseas, it shares credible threat information through its Consular Information Program documents, available on the internet at http://travel.state.gov. In addition to information on the internet, travelers may obtain up-to-date information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the U.S. or outside the U.S. and Canada on a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444.

Security Forces Nab 44 Terrorists, Seize Weapons Caches

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Sept. 30, 2005 – Iraqi security forces and multinational forces from Task Force Freedom detained 44 suspected terrorists and seized a number of weapons during operations in northern Iraq Sept. 26-30, military officials reported.

"Americans Among Dead in Bali Blasts"
Saturday, October 01, 2005

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "BALI, Indonesia — At least two bombs exploded almost simultaneously Saturday in tourist areas of the Indonesian resort island of Bali (search), killing at least 22 people and wounding about 50 others, officials said. The blasts came a month after Indonesia's president warned of possible terrorist attacks.

The wounded included at least two Americans.

The blasts at two packed seafood restaurants in Jimbaran beach and a bustling outdoor shopping center in downtown Kuta were the work of terrorists, Indonesian President Suslio Bambang Yudhoyono (search) said. He also warned that more attacks were possible."


ARTICLE SNIPPET#2: "The attacks occurred nearly three years to the day that bombings in Kuta (search) killed 202 people, mostly foreigners. Those attacks, and subsequent deadly bombings in 2003 and 2004, were blamed on the Al Qaeda-linked terror group Jemaah Islamiyah."

"Brady Anti-Gun Group Lies to Foreign Tourists"
by Jim Kouri, CPP

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "The Brady Campaign to Control Gun Violence is warning foreign tourists that they may be in danger if they visit Florida. The politically active gun-control group is warning Europeans that a new Florida gun law will increase the likelihood that tourists will be shot in the streets if Americans believe their safety is being threatened. The Brady group is spending big bucks in their attempt to hurt Florida's economy. And they are lying to do it."

News Release

September 30, 2005

STATEWIDE ICE FUGITIVE OPERATION NETS 99 ILLEGAL ALIENS
Violent criminals among the arrested in Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville, and Orlando

MIAMI- U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced today that 99 individuals were arrested by detention and removal officers during a weeklong statewide operation targeting alien fugitives, many with criminal convictions for violent crimes. Operation Clean Sweep is part of an ongoing effort to identify and arrest fugitive criminal aliens that were ordered removed by a federal immigration judge but failed to comply with their lawful orders. Many of those arrested have been in hiding evading law enforcement for years.

The operation was conducted by ICE Fugitive Operations teams in Miami, Tampa, Jacksonville and Orlando.

“Operation Clean Sweep is part of our continued mission to keeping our communities safe by removing dangerous criminal aliens from our streets," said Michael Rozos, field office director for detention and removal in Florida. "Criminal aliens have a very high rate of recidivism and often re-victimize the community in which they reside. By finding and removing these fugitives, we are able to greatly enhance the public safety of Florida, while restoring integrity to our nation's immigration system."

Many of the fugitives arrested during this operation have a history of violent criminal activity that include sexual assault of a child, driving under the influence (DUI), domestic violence, child abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and battery on a law enforcement officer. Some examples of those arrested in this operation are:

Feddy Avila, a 44-year-old national of Costa Rica convicted of assault with intent to commit sexual battery on a minor. Avila was arrested on Sept. 29th in Miami, Florida.

Carol B Sue, a 32-year-old national of the United Kindgom convicted of battery, child abuse, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, strong-armed robbery and burglary with assault. Sue was arrested on Sept. 26th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Sheldon Ramjattan, a 28-year-old national of Trinidad and Tobago convicted of armed robbery. Ramjattan was arrested on Sept. 27th in Lake Worth, Florida.

George Sandiford, a 52-year-old national of Barbados convicted of aggravated battery with a weapon, battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and child abuse. Sandiford was arrested on Sept. 29th in South Bay, Florida.

Badderdin Jakouch, a 22-year-old national of Saudi Arabia convicted of assault, possession of narcotic equipment, shoplifting, obstruction of a police officer and contempt of court. Jakouch was arrested on Sept. 28th in Jacksonville, Florida.

Michael Anthony Houlker, a 51-year-old national of Jamaica convicted of aggravated battery, sale of marijuana and possession of marijuana. Houlker was arrested on Sept. 28th in Deltona, Florida.

Gregorio Flores-Ramirez, a 27-year-old national of Mexico convicted of carrying a concealed weapon and possession of marijuana. Flores-Ramirez was arrested this morning in Haines City, Florida.

Salvador Ochoa-Reyes, a 49-year-old national of Honduras convicted of domestic battery and assault charges. Ochoa-Reyes was arrested Sept. 25 in Bradenton, Florida.

Candido Silva-Aguilar, a 40-year-old national of Mexico convicted of committing a sexual offense against a child. Silva-Aguilar was arrested on Sept. 28th in Orlando, Florida.

Edward Pinnock, a 44-year-old national of Jamaica convicted of sale of cocaine and re-entry after deportation. Pinnock was arrested on Sept. 28th in Cocoa Beach, Florida.

Operation Clean Sweep is a combined effort between Federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies throughout Florida coming together to locate and apprehend fugitives. Participating agencies included: ICE’s Office of Investigations, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Hillsborough County Warrants Division, Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, Haines City Police Department, and Florida State Parole and Probation.

The arrests made in this operation are a result of ICE's National Fugitive Operations Program (NFOP), which is part of ICE's ongoing effort to restore integrity to the nation's immigration system. Last fiscal year, ICE removed a record 160,000 aliens from the country.

The aim of the NFOP initiative is to reduce the number of fugitive aliens in the United States. Fugitives are foreign nationals who have been ordered removed by a federal immigration judge, but failed to comply with those orders. Currently, ICE has 16 Fugitive Operations Teams nationwide which are designed to identify, locate, and apprehend fugitive aliens for removal from the United States. The President's budget seeks $8.8 million in enhanced funding in FY 2006 to increase the number of Fugitive Operations teams around the country. In fiscal year 2004, there was a 62 percent increase in the number of fugitive aliens apprehended by ICE compared to the previous year.

In addition to the Operation Clean Sweep arrests, ICE's Florida Field office arrested 1,075 fugitive aliens so far this fiscal year. Since these individuals have already been through immigration proceedings, they are subject to immediate removal from the country.

"Nuclear Security: Feds Nail Three Illegal Aliens at Nuclear Plant"
by Jim Kouri, CPP

ARTICLE SNIPPET: "In the latest in a series of arrests involving illegal aliens at nuclear facilities, federal agents arrested three illegal aliens in Blair, Nebraska, on September 15 when they attempted to enter the outer secure area of the Omaha Public Power District’s Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station to perform contract work at the plant for the first time.

The three men, all citizens of Mexico, had been hired by an independent contractor to perform maintenance work at the nuclear facility. As they attempted to enter a secure area of the plant, the men presented identification documents that raised the suspicions of Omaha Public Power District security officers. The officers contacted Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials for assistance. ICE agents responded and arrested the men after determining that they were illegally present in the United States."
