Exclusive: Major Events on the Horizon Prompt a Surge in Anti-Terror Efforts

By PIERRE THOMAS

July 28, 2008—


Government officials have been quietly stepping up counterterror efforts out of a growing concern that al Qaeda or similar organizations might try to capitalize on the spate of extremely high-profile events in the coming months, sources tell ABC News.

Security experts point to next month's Olympics as evidence that high-profile events attract threats of terrorism, like the one issued this past weekend by a Chinese Muslim minority group that warned of its intent to attack the Games.

Anti-terror officials in the U.S. cite this summer and fall's lineup of two major political parties' conventions, November's general election and months of transition into a new presidential administration as cause for heightened awareness and action.

This is what the Department of Homeland Security is quietly declaring a Period of Heightened Alert, or POHA, a time frame when terrorists may have more incentive to attack.

According to drafts of government memos described to ABC News, the period would run roughly from this August through July 2009.

During this time, homeland security analysts will be asked to redouble efforts to study terrorism leads. And a number of agencies will be asked to review emergency response plans to a variety of attacks, from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to biological weapons.

Officials also are being asked to make sure they are prepared for all contingencies during the transition from the Bush administration to that of the next president.

In a recent interview, FBI director Robert Mueller told ABC News of his concerns for homeland security.

"When you have a series of events like this which are very public, where you have a number of people that are congregated together, we take additional precautions," he said.

"That means identifying, focusing on the intelligence that's available and scrutinizing it to pieces and running it to ground, to putting in place the precautions to assure the particular events go according to plan and free from terrorist attacks," he said.

At the moment, the nation's public threat level will remain at yellow, or "elevated," but not orange, or "high."

The reasons: There are no specifics indicating an attack on the U.S. is imminent, and U.S. officials do not want to be accused of trying to inject themselves into the presidential campaign.

"That's a balancing act," said Jerry Hauer, former Homeland Security official and ABC News consultant. "They really have to focus on these events and this critical time we're going through as a nation, but they have to be very careful about the public message to not make it look political or like they're fearmongering."

Government officials point to the Sept. 11 attacks, which happened just nine months into a new administration, and the Madrid train bombings, which were carried out just three days before Spain's 2004 general election.

They say history suggests a need to take potential threats seriously -- especially in the very near future.

I'm willing to wager that there won't be a single succesful terrorist plot (aside from what the CIA is doing in the middle east) from now until the end of Obamas second term.

Bush-the-idiot-moron is going to attack Iran. He already said he would do it prior to the end of his term (Jan 20, 2009).

BEWARE and PREPARE. If he attacks Iran, gasoline will go instantly to $12 a gallon and TSWHTF-BT... and peeps will grab their weapons.

The elite are having their conventions and want the Nazi storm troopers to kick some peasant ass for their amusement even though not one politician has ever died in a terrorist attack. Funny only peasants die in them and then they get kicked around by the elite's storm troopers. Sort of like the fact that Israel has never been the victim of a high level terrorist attack. Hummmmm.......

Not one word on mainstream media about the Congressional Judiciary Committee Hearing on the Impeachment and Indictment of the Bush Administration for Mass Murder and High Crimes and Misdemeanors. But, tons of news stories on the US getting ready for WWIII. It's all propaganda. Just like before the Iraq War. It's all lies. The warmongerer's will be stopped this time. Too many good people with healing and truthful hearts now on the Earth. It a time for healing. These news stories about a need for heightened security against terrorists is all BS.

I truly believe that the World is in a State of Divine Grace at this time and no more massive war destruction will ever happen again. Positive thinking is essential at this time. Turn off the mainstream media. It's all BS, crap, fearmongering, warmongering lies.
