FBI DHS Joint Intelligence Bulletin
(U//FOUO) Potential for Unaffiliated Individuals to Conduct Retaliatory Attacks in the Homeland Following the Death of Usama Bin Ladin
9 May 2011
(U//FOUO) This Joint Intelligence Bulletin provides law enforcement and public and private sector officials with information for consideration in the wake of the death of Usama bin Ladin. This information is provided to support the activities of DHS and FBI and to help federal, state, and local government counterterrorism and law enforcement officials deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks directed against the United States.
(U) Key Findings
(U//FOUO) The death of Usama bin Ladin could inspire violent extremist followers to conduct retaliatory attacks in the Homeland. We are particularly concerned that lone offenders—who are unburdened by organizational constraints that can slow operational decisions by established terrorist groups—could attempt a near-term attack using simple improvised explosive devices (IEDs) or small arms tactics against easily accessible, low security targets.
(U//FOUO) At this time there are no credible threats or reporting to indicate the active planning of such an attack. Due to the high operational security and unsophisticated tactics, lone-offender attacks are difficult for law enforcement to detect through existing tripwires and deter.
