National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin [November 10, 2021]   [open pdf - 243KB]

This is the November 10, 2021 National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin released by the Department of Homeland Security. From the Document: "The Secretary of Homeland Security has issued an updated National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin regarding the current heightened threat environment across the United States. The Homeland continues to face a diverse and challenging threat environment as it approaches several religious holidays and associated mass gatherings that in the past have served as potential targets for acts of violence. These threats include those posed by individuals and small groups engaged in violence, including domestic violent extremists (DVEs) and those inspired or motivated by foreign terrorists and other malign foreign influences. These actors continue to exploit online forums to influence and spread violent extremist narratives and promote violent activity. The ongoing global pandemic continues to exacerbate these threats, in part due to perceived government overreach in implementation of public health safety measures. Further, foreign terrorist organizations and DVEs continue to attempt to inspire potential followers to conduct attacks in the United States, including by exploiting recent events in Afghanistan. As of November 10, 2021, DHS is not aware of an imminent and credible threat to a specific location in the United States. [...] [1] Be prepared for emergency situations and remain aware of circumstances that may place you at risk. [2] Maintain digital media literacy [hyperlink] to recognize and build resilience to false and harmful narratives. [3] Make note of your surroundings and the nearest security personnel. [4] Government agencies will provide details about emerging threats as information is identified. Listen to local authorities and public safety officials."
