1.0  (U//FOUO) SUMMARY: PERSONNEL ATTENDING MILITARY FUNERALS AND OTHER CEREMONIAL GATHERINGS ARE REMINDED TO REMAIN VIGILANT AND AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES. 
2.0.  (U)  THE FOLLOWING IS A SUMMARY TRANSLATION OF A WEB FORUM, IT HAS BEEN EDITED FOR CLARITY-
“THIS IS THE BEST TIME TO TARGET THE U.S. IN A WAY THAT WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT IN ACCELERATING ITS WITHDRAWAL FROM THE OCCUPIED COUNTRIES, ESPECIALLY FROM AFGHANISTAN.  IT WILL INCREASE CALLS FOR WITHDRAWAL FROM THERE BECAUSE THE WAR TURNED OUT TO BE A LOSS.  THIS TARGETING WILL LEAD TO CHAOS AND PANIC IN THE ECONOMY OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY, ESPECIALLY AT THIS TIME, BECAUSE AMERICA IS SUFFERING FROM THE INDICATIONS OF MAJOR ECONOMIC COLLAPSE AND ITS IMPACT WILL EXTEND TO EUROPE AND ASIA.
A.  (U)  WE ALL KNOW THAT THE DEAD BODIES OF AMERICAN SOLDIERS ARRIVE ALMOST DAILY FROM AFGHANISTAN.  THE PREPARATION OF THE DEAD BODIES FOR OFFICIAL BURIAL IS DONE BY THE MILITARY, AND LARGE NUMBERS OF THE ARMY OFFICIALS ATTEND THE FUNERALS, MOSTLY FROM THE SAME STATE OF THE DEAD SOLDIER.  SOMETIMES THE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE, THE GOVERNOR’S ASSISTANTS, A NUMBER OF PROMINENT FIGURES IN THE POLITICAL COMMUNITY AND THE U.S. MILITARY TO HONOR THE DEAD SOLDIER ARE ALSO PRESENT.
B.  (U)  USUALLY, THE PROTECTION OF THIS FUNERAL IS COMPLETELY NONEXISTENT, SO SOMEONE CAN EASILY TARGET THESE PERSONS AT THE FUNERAL.  IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE MARTYR MUST WEAR A MILITARY UNIFORM TO AVOID ATTENTION OR DETECTION, AND TO ENSURE HE CAN APPROACH THE TARGET WITHOUT ANY DIFFICULTIES OR PROBLEM.
C.  (U)  THE IMPACT OF THIS OPERATION ESPECIALLY ON THE MILITARY AND AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL BE VERY STRONG, SIMILAR TO THE CASE OF THE FORT HOOD, TEXAS SHOOTING.  AND NOW WE DO NOT TARGET THE AMERICAN PEOPLE OR THE SENSITIVE AREAS, BUT IT WILL BE IMPORTANT PEOPLE OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY.
D.  (U)  IF THE DEAD SOLDIER HAD A HIGH RANK, THE FUNERAL WILL BE ATTENDED BY THE MINISTRY OF DEFENSE, CHIEFS OF STAFF, ASSISTANT SENIOR SOLDIERS, AND INTELLIGENCE PERSONNEL.  THESE OPERATIONS NEED SPECIAL AND CAREFUL PLANNING BECAUSE OF THE PROTECTION OF THE THESE PERSONNEL.
E.  (U)  AS YOU KILL OUR WOMEN, OUR CHILDREN AND OUR ELDERS, WE WILL KILL YOUR WOMEN, YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR ELDERS.
F.  (U)  WE WILL TARGET YOUR FUNERALS, YOUR CEREMONIES, AND YOUR CROWDS.”
3.0  (U//FOUO) JFHQ-NCR/USAMDW FORCE PROTECTION CONDITION: CURRENT BASELINE FPCON FOR JFHQ-NCR AOR REMAINS UNCHANGED.  NO CHANGES IN FPCON ARE BEING CONSIDERED AT THIS TIME.  
3.1 (U//FOUO) JFHQ-NCR/USAMDW IS NOT AWARE OF ANY INFORMATION INDICATING THAT AN ATTACK SUCH AS IS SUGGESTED IN THIS WEB FORUM POSTING IS IMMINENT OR PLANNED.   THIS POSTING APPEARS TO BE ASPIRATIONAL VICE PLANNING.
3.2 (U//FOUO) THE NATURE OF CEREMONIAL EVENTS TO INCLUDE FUNERALS MANY TIMES BRINGS TOGETHER LARGE GROUPS OF HIGH RANKING MILITARY, STATE, LOCAL AND FEDERAL OFFICIALS AND THEREFORE REQUIRES INCREASED SITUATIONAL AWARENESS.  LOOK FOR THINGS PECULIAR AND OUT OF THE ORDINARY AND IF SOMETHING OR SOMEONE DOES NOT SEEM RIGHT TO YOU, REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY.  
3.3  (U//FOUO) SUGGESTED ACTIONS TO COUNTER POSSIBLE POTENTIAL THREATS ARE:
3.3.1  (U//FOUO) INCREASE VIGILANCE AT FUNERALS, INTERMENTS, AND OTHER CEREMONIES.  BRIEF PERSONNEL, ESPECIALLY CEREMONIAL PERSONNEL, TO BE OBSERVANT AND AWARE OF THEIR SURROUNDINGS AND TO REPORT ANY SUSPICIOUS OR UNUSUAL ACTIVITY TO THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES IMMEDIATELY
3.3.2  (U//FOUO) EXAMPLES OF UNUSUAL ITEMS TO REPORT INCLUDE: 
3.3.2.A.  UNAUTHORIZED OR UNUSUAL UNIFORM APPEARANCE; E.G. NOT WEARING THE DESIGNATED UNIFORM OF THE DAY TO THE EVENT.
3.3.2.B.  MISMATCHED UNIFORMS OR UNIFORM PARTS
3.3.2.C.  MISPLACED PATCHES, INACURATE DISPLAY OF MEDALS OR AWARDS ON UNIFORM, ETC.
3.3.3  (U//FOUO) ENSURE ALL PERSONNEL ARE FULLY AWARE OF THE ARMY IWATCH, OR SIMILAR OTHER SERVICE PROGRAMS, AND HOW TO USE THEM TO REPORT SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES.
3.3.4  (U//FOUO)  RECOMMEND THAT MDW SENIOR COMMAND INSTALLATIONS AND MAJOR SUBORDINATE COMMANDS ENGAGE THEIR CIVILIAN LAW ENFORCEMENT COUNTERPARTS TO INCORPORATE THREATS OF THIS NATURE INTO THEIR COMMUNITY AWARENESS PROGRAMS.
4.0  (U//FOUO) MDW MAJOR SUBORDINATE COMMANDS AND SENIOR COMMAND INSTALLATIONS WILL ENSURE THAT ALL PERSONNEL ARE MADE AWARE OF THIS POTENTIAL THREAT AND THE APPROPRIATE PERSONAL SECURITY MEASURES AND SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY REPORTING PROCEDURES.  RECOMMEND THAT JFHQ-NCR SERVICE COMPONENT COMMANDS FOLLOW SUIT.
5.0  (U//FOUO) THE JFHQ-NCR/USAMDW OPERATIONS INTELLIGENCE GROUP    (J32, PMO OPS AND PROTECTION DIVISIONS) WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS SITUATION AND ISSUE UPDATES AS REQUIRED.
6.0  (U//FOUO) THE POC FOR THIS FORCE PROTECTION MESSAGE IS JFHQ-NCR/USAMDW PMO PROTECTION DIVISION AT[redacted]; DSN: [redacted] OR E-MAIL: [redacted].

Federal officials said on background that there is no evidence “at the moment to either suggest or indicate” that Melaku is associated with any terrorist group. However, the current, mostly Christian Ethiopian government has been working closely in Somalia with the CIA and Navy SEALS to combat Islamic extremists – which has included the employment of Lockheed drones – for the better part of the last decade, according to past and present US intelligence officers and members of the US special operations community.
