ABC NEWS: Federal authorities today urged law enforcement across the country to be alert for possible attacks inside the United States in retaliation for U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic group ISIS, the brutal terrorist group that beheaded American journalist James Foley and has seized vast swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. In a joint bulletin issued to local, state and federal law enforcement, the Department of Homeland Security and FBI said that while they are “unaware of any specific, credible threats against the Homeland” and find most threats to the U.S. homeland by supporters of ISIS “not credible,” they cannot rule out attacks in the United States from sympathizers radicalized by the group’s online propaganda.
“Because of the individualized nature of the radicalization process – it is difficult to predict triggers that will contribute to [homegrown violent extremists] attempting acts of violence,” the bulletin states. Moreover, such lone offenders “present law enforcement with limited opportunities to detect and disrupt plots, which frequently involve simple plotting against targets of opportunity,” according to the bulletin.
The Biggest Terror Plot Since 9/11, Al Qaeda Threat: Officials Fear 'Ingenious' Liquid Explosive. http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/al-qaeda-threat-officials-fear-ingenious-liquid-explosive/story?id=19871892. There are growing concerns that an al Qaeda affiliate could use a new generation of liquid explosive, currently undetectable, in a potential attack, according to two senior U.S. government officials briefed on the terror threat that has prompted the closing of nearly two dozen U.S. embassies earlier this month.
Though the Transportation Security Administration has long been concerned about liquid explosives being used in potential devices -- as it was during the failed Christmas Day bombing in 2009 -- the new tactic allows terrorists to dip ordinary clothing into the liquid to make the clothes themselves into explosives once dry. "It's ingenious," one of the officials said. Another senior official said that the tactic would not be detected by current security measures.
Memo Warns About Terrorist ‘Dry-Runs’ on Airplanes, I Witnessed ‘Dry Run’ on US Airways Flight 2095 on 9/9/2013. 10 NEWS..Orlando, Florida — It was a US Airways flight bound for Florida on September 2, and some airline pilots believe it also may have been a dry-run for terrorists. The 10 News Investigators have obtained an internal memo that details a frightening incident that brings back memories of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Since then, federal efforts have gone in place to prevent a similar attack, leading many to believe another attack what happened on 9/11 could never happen again. Wolf Koch, who flies Boeing 767s for Delta Airlines and is the Aviation Security Committee Chairman for the Air Line Pilots Association International, says that belief “is very foolish.” Koch describes the events of 9/11 as “an incredible attack on us. It was very well orchestrated and they’re going to try it again… 100 percent, no question in my mind. They’re going to try it again.”
On September 9th, 2013 I was on US Airways Flight 2095 out of Newark Headed to Sarasota Fl with a stop in Charlotte NC. I was in seat 6B, seated directly in front of me were two Arab males, they were about 22 years old and 26 years old, the one seated to my left spent the whole time of the flight, about 1 hour and 15 minutes, making diagrams of the cabin, making note of where the drink cart was kept and notes on the activity of the flight attendants. The flight attendants (all women) appeared to be alerted about the two Arab males and kept close tabs on them. The Two Arab males spoke no English during the flight, they both had on NY Yankee baseball caps and wore black t-shirts and jeans and the older Arab male made frequent trips to the bathroom. I watched these two Arab guys intently as we took off and landed. The two Arab males had identical clothes on, were these clothes the new tactic that allows terrorists to dip ordinary clothing into liquid to make the clothes themselves into explosives bombs once dry
"Jermaine Lindsay (L) on a dry run doing surveillance for the 7/7 terror attacks in London, they all had backpacks":
Upon arrival in Charlotte the Two Arab males made a quick departure and I followed then as they headed for their connecting flight which appeared to be to Fort Lauderdale Fl, they both had large backpacks as a carry-on. The younger Arab male did not speak or understand English, the older Arab guy had to explain everything in Arabic, these guys were not Yankee baseball fans, they were posers. I say it again "The two Arab males had identical clothes on, were these clothes the new tactic that allows terrorists to dip ordinary clothing into liquid to make the clothes themselves into explosives bombs once dry."
Hey let’s get real here I have been in the spy business for 18 years these two Arab dudes were doing surveillance.
