Summary

¶1.  (SBU)  Summary: The Deputy Chief of Mission chaired a 
meeting of the core Emergency Action Committee December 1 to 
review the Embassy's security posture prior to the local 
weekend.  Members noted no new threat reporting specific to 
Oman, and concluded that there have been no substantive 
changes in the local security environment since the last 
meeting (reftel).  Accordingly, the Committee concurred that 
the Embassy's already heightened security posture and FPCON 
remain appropriate.  End Summary.

Security Environment 
-------------------- 
 
¶2.  (SBU)  The Deputy Chief of Mission chaired a meeting of 
the core Emergency Action Committee ("EAC") December 1 to 
review the Embassy's security posture prior to the local 
weekend.  Noting no new threat reporting specific to Oman, 
nor any changes in previously reported assessments of threat 
environment, the EAC continued to characterize the local 
security situation as stable. 
 
------------------- 
Sustained Vigilance 
------------------- 
 
¶3.  (SBU)  Prior to concluding the meeting, RSO reiterated 
that members of the EAC should continue reinforcing to both 
their staffs and family members the need for vigilance 
regarding all aspects of personal security, including the 
need to maintain a low profile and to remain unpredictable. 
RSO also re-emphasized the importance of immediately 
reporting suspicious activity or security-related incidents, 
especially those involving suspected surveillance, to Post 
One. 
 
---------- 
Conclusion 
---------- 
 
¶4.  (S/NF)   The EAC concluded that there has been no 
substantive change in the local security environment since 
the last meeting held on November 27 (reftel), and that the 
Embassy's already heightened security posture and FPCON 
remain appropriate.  Nonetheless, the EAC remains acutely 
aware of the need to monitor both the regional and local 
security and threat environments, and is prepared to take the 
necessary countermeasures should changes to either occur. 
DCM, RSO, RMAS, P/E, CONS, DAO, OMC (USDR), and ECA 
(USCENTAF) participated in the meeting.
