    Sept. 11 Prep: Dept. of Homeland Security Advisory (Sept. 4) to Security Personnel Says No Change in Threat Level...For Now

    (Sept. 5, 2003) -- In a Sept. 4 advisory to security personnel publicly posted on the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security web site, the agency has advised there is no change in the national threat level ...for now.

    In the public interest, posts the following advisory...and also provides a link to the agency which readers can use for further updates:

    [begin text]

    September 4 - The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been aggressively monitoring and assessing information with other Federal agencies on potential terrorist threats in the United States (US). Based on a recent interagency review of available information leading up to the September 11th anniversary, we remain concerned about Al-Qaeda's continued efforts to plan multiple attacks against the US and US interests overseas. However, at this time, we have no specific information on individual targets or dates for any attack.

    Arrests over the past several months of key Al-Qaeda members around the world may have delayed or even disrupted some plans. We do know, however, that operatives still at large view attacks on US territory as a priority and that they continue to pursue a range of targets, tactics, and capabilities to accomplish this objective. Al-Qaeda's primary intent is to conduct synchronized attacks against US interests. At the same time, recent terrorist incidents overseas highlight the possibility that Al-Qaeda could opt to conduct lower-scale attacks against "softer" target sets.

    The Department of Homeland Security will continue to work with Federal partners in monitoring and assessing all intelligence reporting relative to Al-Qaeda operations. This Advisory is provided to increase the awareness of appropriate state and local authorities and the private sector responsible for security of critical infrastructure and other potential target sets.

    DHS intends to update this Advisory should it receive additional relevant information, including information provided to it by the user community. Based on this notification, no change to the Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS) level is anticipated; the current HSAS level is YELLOW.

    Meanwhile, the FBI has issued a "be on the lookout" advisory for four men. posts a link to the FBI advisory at:
