Double-tapping this for maximum exposure.

Quote:
The Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation warned in a report distributed by email late on Friday that the nuclear, energy, aviation, water and critical manufacturing industries have been targeted along with government entities in attacks dating back to at least May.
The agencies warned that hackers had succeeded in compromising some targeted networks, but did not identify specific victims or describe any cases of sabotage.

Quote:
A Desert Hot Springs man has been arrested for allegedly plotting to kill police officers and civilians, police announced Saturday.
The Desert Hot Springs Police Department learned of the plot Friday, Nov. 3, after getting a tip from an acquaintance of the suspect, the department said. Oscar Rene Parra Rincon, 39, was "actively and imminently planning to hunt and ambush police officers," the department said.
Rincon had illegally obtained ammunition to fulfill his plan, which included firing at civilians so that he could then shoot at responding officers, the DHSPD said.

Reference the Manhattan Truck Attack -

Quote:
According to federal court papers, he said:
The attack was a year in the planning and he carried out a trial run with a rental truck last month
He intentionally chose Halloween because he believed there would be more people in the streets
He originally planned to target the Brooklyn Bridge as well
He wanted to display Islamic State (IS) flags on the truck, but decided not to draw attention to himself
He was inspired by 90 graphic and violent propaganda videos found on his phone - in particular, one in which IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi asks what Muslims are doing to avenge deaths in Iraq.

I suspect we'll see this repeated, hence the position marker.

Pictured curled up in failure: Brooklyn-based Bangladeshi cab driver, 27, in a suicide vest who caused rush-hour panic in Manhattan when his 'revenge' pipe bomb exploded too early
Quote:
A pipe bomb went off in an underground tunnel linking the Times Square subway station and the Port Authority bus terminal Monday morning
Police have taken one man into custody, who was wearing the homemade explosive
Quote:
The suspect has been identified as 27-year-old Bangladeshi national Akayed Ullah, who has been living in the U.S. for seven years
Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said the suspect 'supposedly was setting the device off in the name of ISIS' and that it was 'definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended'
CNN reports that the bomb detonated prematurely and that if it had gone off as intended the damage could have been catastrophic
Ullah allegedly told investigators at the hospital that he carried out the attack because 'they've been bombing in my country'
He also revealed that he made the device at his job at an electrical company
The FDNY says three other people reported to local hospitals for minor injuries
The incident happened just days after President Trump sparked demonstrations across the world by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital city
One of the largest demonstrations took place in Muslim-majority Bangladesh

The way this is written, seems like the FBI was on-point.

This police officer is accused of being an ISIS-supporting neo-Nazi. He says he just has a dark sense of humor.

Quote:
Young is the only U.S. police officer to ever face terrorism charges — a case brought after he was under FBI surveillance during six of the 13 years he patrolled the D.C. Metro system.
The 36-year-old Alexandria native is also a Muslim convert who used to dress up as a Nazi officer in reenactments, according to court documents, and kept a prayer list that included Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler. And he’s a Ron Paul supporter who used his vacation time to fight in a civil war on the other side of the world.

I'll just leave this here.

Quote:
Monday’s deadly Amtrak train derailment appears to have been caused by an object on the railway, according to a government official briefed on the crash.
A preliminary investigation suggests maintenance problems are unlikely to blame because the incident took place on brand-new tracks, the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
At least six people were killed and the death toll is expected to rise, the official said.
https://nypost.com/2017/12/18/object...ak-derailment/

Why, you ask?

From mid-August

Quote:
CHICAGO (WLS) --
Now that vehicle-ramming attacks have become the most-favored tactic of terrorists worldwide, jihadists claim to have a new target: trains in the United States, including many that roll in and out of Chicago.

Following a detailed release from Al Qaeda urging rail attacks, the I-Team learned Monday that U.S. Transportation Safety Administration officials have sent an alert to mass transit, passenger and freight train operators concerning "steps that they can take to protect their systems from being targeted by violent extremists."

Al Qaeda's newly released online propaganda magazine "Inspire" features a cover story on train attacks and offers a how-to manual on derailing trains. The goal of derailing or blowing up a train is to create mass casualties and strike fear in commuters and the traveling public.

Quote:
Nine derailers, a piece of railroad equipment used to derail train cars for safety purposes in railyards have been stolen recently, sources said, citing the FBI's weekly intelligence bulletin.
The theft of these items is strange since they are of little use outside of the rail industry, according to the bulletin.
Railroads have been targeted in the past by terrorists, the bulletin said.
It specifically mentioned the Oct. 1995 derailment of an Amtrak train in Hyder, Ariz. In that incident, one person was killed and 78 were injured when parts of the track were sabotaged. The FBI located a derail 50 miles from Hyder.

Or it was speeding at 81 mph onto a curve with a 30mph limit. Luckily on the inaugural journey very few passengers were aboard.

Figured you'd be along with that.

It behooves everyone to point out the Most Dangerous threat, if only for future Situational Awareness. “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?

Sounds like this guy was bounced from the Corps not long after he started.

Quote:
A Northern California man was arrested this week and accused of planning an ISIS-inspired Christmas Day suicide attack on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.
In an 11-page affidavit filed in federal court in Fresno Friday, FBI special agent Christopher McKinney alleged that Jameson espoused "radical jihadi beliefs" on social media. According to the agent, Jameson "liked" and "loved" ISIS-related social media posts, including one that threatened a Christmas attack in New York City.
Jameson also allegedly expressed support for Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek immigrant who drove a rented truck down a Lower Manhattan bike path on Halloween, killing eight people and injuring 11 others.
"I'm glad to know we Muslims are finally hitting back," Jameson wrote to an FBI informant he was communicating with. "The Kuffar deserve everything and more for the lives they have taken," he added, using an Arabic term meaning "non-believer."
Earlier this month, McKinney said an undercover FBI agent began communicating with Jameson and questioned how he might be able to help ISIS. Jameson allegedly responded, "I was a soldier in the Kuffar army before I reverted. I have been trained in combat and things of war. [God willing,] anything of that nature."
Quote:
McKinney said Jameson attended Marine basic training "in or about" June 2009 and trained as a sharpshooter, but was later discharged for failing to disclose a history of asthma

Update at 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 23: Police have identified the suspect as 51-year-old Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty. They say El-Mofty shot at a Capitol Police officer at 3rd and Walnut streets.
Police said he then shot at a Pennsylvania State Trooper at Fifth and Strawberry streets. The Pennsylvania State trooper was slightly wounded.
El-Mofty also fired shots with two handguns at officers at 17th and Mulberry Streets. Officers returned fire and killed him.
Police are looking for any information about El-Mofty. They said he spent time in both Dauphin and Cumberland counties and was recently in the Middle East.

Frustrated MS-13 gang leaders feeling the pressure from the Trump administration’s crackdown are looking to send “younger, more violent offenders” to the United States to take over the role of being enforcers, officials say.

The revelations were made Thursday during a House Committee on Homeland Security meeting on fighting international criminal organizations, where officials discussed the arrests and imprisonment of MS-13 members and leadership over the last year.

Default Americans In ISIS: Some 300 Tried To Join, 12 Have Returned To U.S.

Quote:
An estimated 300 Americans attempted to join the Islamic State and other radical Islamist groups in Iraq and Syria, including a small number who rose to senior positions, according to the most detailed report to date on this issue.
So far, 12 of those Americans have returned home, yet none has carried out an attack on U.S. soil,* according the report released Monday by George Washington University's Program on Extremism.
Caveat: OSINT can have limitations.


Quote:
The George Washington University team scoured online material, reviewed court records, spoke with government officials and interviewed some of those who returned to the U.S. after joining ISIS.
Quote:
Around 50 Americans were arrested as they tried to leave the country, and never made it out of the U.S. The report was able to document 64 individuals who did reach Syria or Iraq.
*
Quote:
Of the 12 Americans who returned, nine were arrested and remain in custody, the report said. Two others are known to law enforcement, but have not been detained, it added. The 12th man went back to Syria a second time and carried out a suicide bombing, the report said.

A former teacher at a Harlem charter school stockpiled bomb-making materials and paid students to break down fireworks to extract gunpowder for the explosives, authorities say.
Christian Toro and his brother, Tyler Toro, were arrested by the FBI Thursday morning after authorities found a bomb-making manual on the teacher's school-issued laptop, 30 pounds of chemicals and household materials used to create explosives in their apartment, a diary that referenced "operation flash" and a handwritten note in a bookbag that said "under the full moon the small ones will know terror."
