Nuclear, Bio, Chemical Weapons Threat Against US
Fed Source Calls Threat "Credible"
8 December 2003-- Communications found on a elusive jihad web site suggests attacks against New York City, Washington and Las Vegas in the US, and
London in the UK. A detailed communications suggesting the spread of weaponized anthrax in New York through disbursement from the air (skyscraper) and
the placement of "dirty bombs" in New York and the other cities mentioned were furnished to federal authorities. The federal contact termed the
threat "credible" and stated that various other foreign intelligence agencies identified the same or similar communications and reported the same to
DHS authorities. No specific information concerning the timing of this event was found.
Note to the reader: this information was obtained from raw intelligence data and it's legitimacy has not been fully confirmed. The purpose of posting
this information/advisory is simply to inform the reader of the current content of terrorist communications. Developing --Jill St. Claire
al Qaeda Re-Issues October Statement
Substantial Increase in Other Clerical Rulings, Signings
8 December 2003--In the wake of the al Qaeda videotape released last week, a religious "statement" originally issued by al Qaeda on 7 October 2003
is again being posted and broadcast across numerous jihad Internet forums. The statement reaffirms the jihad against Jews and Christians and
"occupiers" of all Muslim lands and continues to threaten more attacks in the Arabian peninsula, with particular emphasis on Saudi Arabia. Statement
in Arabic HERE.
In addition to the reposting of the statement from al Qaeda, other statements and rulings are prolific, many which seem to call for attacks
against the US military throughout the Middle East. A complete listing of the rulings is currently being compiled; we will post them in an expanded
section of this web site.
Perhaps most important are communications that suggest that the al Qaeda video is intended to usher in larger and more coordinated attacks
against our military assets and troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and wherever they are based. Numerous references have been found that indicate that when
the al Qaeda video is broadcast in a certain fashion via a particular news agency, this is to signal the start of operations by al Qaeda operatives
already present within the United States. It is relevant to note that among the many items contained in videotape is the praise bestowed upon Abdul
Rahman Jabarah. Jabarah is identified as one of "The Martyrs of the Confrontations," having been killed by security forces in Saudi Arabia on 3 July
2003. Jabarah was born in Kuwait, although grew up in St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada.
ASSESSMENT: Our current findings are consistent with the information contained in a December 5th, 2003 news story in the USA Today in terms of the
increased amount of communications contained on "strategically critical" Internet sites. We initially reported on the increased threat level to the
United States on November 26th, 2003 as detailed in this advisory. Current analysis suggests terrorist interests in "soft targets" such as shopping
malls, the use of official vehicles to carry out homicide attacks, and the continued interest in aircraft (cargo and passenger) to strike the US
during this economically important and religiously significant holiday season. --Jill St. Claire

From correspondents in Singapore
