¶2.  (SBU)  On September 24, the Ambassador chaired a meeting 
of the full EAC to review the Embassy's security posture 
following 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.  Members, 
including Duty Officer, cited no security incidents among 
their staffs or family members over the weekend, while CONS 
confirmed that there were no reported security incidents or 
security-related queries from the private American citizen

EAC Conclusion 
-------------- 
 
¶3.  (S/NF)  The EAC concluded that there have been no 
substantive changes in the local security environment since 
the last meeting held on September 21 (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.  AMB, DCM, P/E, MGT, A/RSO, SIMO, PAO, CONS, MSG, DAO, 
OMC (USDR), ECA (USCENTAF), and Duty Officer participated in 
the meeting.
