FOX NEWS..."Feds urge vigilance 1 year after bin Laden's death". WASHINGTON – Just days before the one-year anniversary of Usama bin Laden's death, federal authorities are telling partners around the country there is no specific, credible threat to the U.S. homeland but they remain concerned "lone wolf" terrorists could use the date to avenge the former Al Qaeda leader's death.
In an intelligence bulletin issued late Wednesday, 4/25/2012, the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Northern Command note that terrorist groups such as Al-Shabaab in Somalia, Northern Africa's Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, and the Pakistani Taliban have called for revenge against the United States for killing bin Laden during the May 1, 2011, raid on his hideout in Pakistan.
What is Comming Soon? Ansar Al-Mujahideen English Forum (AMEF).
The bulletin says Al Qaeda or its affiliates would view an attack "on this anniversary as a symbolic victory," especially in the wake of losses suffered by Al Qaeda through U.S. drone attacks and other efforts overseas.In addition, according to the bulletin, authorities remain concerned that so-called "lone-wolf" extremists not already identified "will execute attacks with little or no warning on or about the anniversary of bin Laden's death."
A report issued Wednesday by the European Union, looking at how terrorism has changed in Europe over the past year, says the "threat has evolved" since the deaths of bin Laden and other terrorist leaders. MORE FROM THIS SOURCE.
The EU Terrorism Situation and Trend Report (TE-SAT) was established in the aftermath of the 11 September 2001 attacks in the United States of America (US), as a reporting mechanism from the Terrorism Working Party (TWP) of the Council of the EU to the European Parliament. The content of the TE-SAT is based on information supplied by EU Member States, some third states (Colombia, Croatia, Iceland, Norway, the Russian Federation, Switzerland, Turkey, and the UNITED STATES) and partner organisations (Eurojust and Interpol), as well as information gained from open sources.
Radicalisation to violence remains a critical component of the terrorist threat. Radical thinking becomes a threat when individuals or groups engage in violence to achieve political, ideological or religious goals. Highprofile media exposure or propaganda efforts via the Internet may assist radicalisation and inspire further like-minded individuals to plan and commit attacks.
Terrorist and extremist groups have a substantial online presence, and the Internet has become the principal means of communication for terrorist and violent extremist individuals and groups. The internet is used for a range of purposes, including instruction, propaganda, recruitment, dispatch of members to conflict areas, fundraising, cooperation with other terrorist organisations, and the planning and coordination of attacks.
“Combating terrorism and violent extremism is a huge challenge which requires innovative measures and cooperation between many stakeholders. Law enforcement authorities need to monitor suspicious activities, intelligence needs to be shared between agencies and information from the public needs to be considered. One fear is that the upcoming Olympic Games in London could be a target, which of course we must do our utmost to prevent,” says Rob Wainwright.
The TE-SAT is a public report produced by Europol on the basis of information provided and verified by the competent law enforcement authorities in the Member States of the EU. The arrests and incidents that took place in the EU in 2011, as referred to in this report, are those that Member States have reported to Europol for the purposes of the TE-SAT.
A substantial proportion of terrorist propaganda on the Internet is distributed by a limited number of Internet forums. Some have thousands of members, many of whom will further distribute messages to other forums that have no apparent terrorist affiliation. In addition, individuals posing as media outlets edit, translate and publish terrorist content issued by foreign terrorist groups, and texts or multimedia content produced based on such material. Some terrorist organisations have designated particular forums or media outlets as their official communication channels. MORE FROM THIS SOURCE
