Summary 
------- 
 
¶1.  (S/NF)  The Ambassador chaired a meeting of the core 
Emergency Action Committee (EAC) on September 26 to review 
the Embassy's security posture after receiving threat 
information related to Oman (ref B). The EAC agreed that due 
to the lack of target specificity, the Embassy's already 
heightened security posture and force protection condition 
(FPCON) remain appropriate.  End Summary.

Local Security Situation 
------------------------ 
 
¶2.  (S/NF)  On September 26, the Ambassador chaired a meeting 
of the core EAC to review the Embassy's security posture 
after receiving threat information related to Oman (ref B). 
The discussion opened with a review of the information, with 
SIMO providing the most recent intelligence analysis.  After 
discussing the report, the EAC determined that although it is 
specific in its time-frame, the lack of target information - 
specifically, failing to mention Muscat, the Embassy, the 
American community, or any other target - led the members to 
conclude that existing countermeasures remain appropriate.

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 24 (reftel A). 
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 
the regional and local security and threat environments, as 
well as the most recent threat reporting. Members are 
prepared to take the necessary actions should changes to 
either occur, or should further information become available 
on ref B that would warrant augmentation of any security 
countermeasures.  AMB, DCM, P/E, MGT, A/RSO, SIMO, PAO, CONS, 
DAO, OMC (USDR), and ECA (USCENTAF) participated in the 
meeting.
