Mistakenly Released Memo Warns of Terrorist Threat in Austin, TX in August; Coincides with DHS Exercise















Texas Military Forces says a memo its command received about a potential terror threat in Austin was sent out by mistake.

The force protection alert outlines what it refers to as unconfirmed reports from the Department of Homeland Security about a potential terror attack in Austin sometime Thursday or Friday. If August 8-9 is not a viable option for an attack, the terrorists will carry out their operation on August 29, according to the alert.

“According to anonymous reporting, a group of trained terrorists are planning to conduct attacks in Austin, Texas and Pasadena, California at the conclusion of the Ramadan period,” the document marked for official and law enforcement use states.

The advisory claims unspecified terrorists or a terrorist group will emulate the Boston bombing by using backpack explosives. The target is said to be 6tth Street in Austin, a popular tourist attraction that is crowded on weekends.

“Additionally, the group plans to attack a school and theological seminary in the downtown Austin area and complete the attack with operations at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.”

Multiple law enforcement agencies will also be taking part in homeland security exercises in Austin over the next few weeks.

Agencies taking part in the exercise include the Austin Police Department, Travis County Sheriff’s Office, the University of Texas Police Department and the FBI.

Drills and exercises have served as cover for real or perceived to be real attacks on numerous occasions.
