meeting of the Emergency Action Committee (EAC) on September 
14 to review the Embassy's security posture prior to the

Local Security Situation 
------------------------ 
 
¶2.  (SBU)  On September 14, the DCM chaired a meeting of the 
core EAC to review the Embassy's security posture prior to 
the local weekend.  The meeting opened with a discussion of 
the local security situation, which the EAC continued to 
characterize as stable.  Likewise, the EAC noted no/no new 
threat reporting specific to Oman. 
 
------------------- 
Sustained Vigilance 
------------------- 
 
¶3.  (SBU)  Prior to concluding the meeting, RSO reiterated 
that members of the EAC must continue reinforcing to both 
their staffs and family members the need for vigilance 
regarding all aspects of personal security - to include 
maintaining a low profile, and remaining unpredictable and 
situationally aware.

EAC Conclusion 
-------------- 
 
¶4.  (S/NF)  The EAC concluded that there have been no 
substantive changes in the local security environment since 
the last meeting held on September 10 (reftel).  Accordingly, 
members agreed that the Embassy's already heightened security 
posture and FPCON remain appropriate.  Embassy Muscat 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, P/E, PAO, MGT, RSO, ARSO, SIMO, CONS (Duty 
Officer), OMC (USDR), and ECA (USCENTAF) participated in the 
meeting.
