What You Need To Know
In the run up to the Presidential Inauguration, AlertsUSA wants to take this opportunity to review the security situation for the inaugural and celebration, as well as look at the broader threat environment.
It is expected that between 700,000 and 1,000,000 spectators will attend the presidential inauguration in Washington DC to watch Donald Trump be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. While Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson indicates there are no specific, credible threats to the inauguration ceremonies, it is important for readers to understand there are numerous nonspecific, extremely credible threats overshadowing the event.
Radical Islamists:
In just the last few moths, the Islamic State has released numerous propaganda videos and magazines encouraging followers to carry out random knife and gun attacks, truck attacks similar to Nice, France and Berlin, Germany, as well as random attacks on soft targets such as nightclubs, airport baggage claim areas, restaurants, schools, parades, and other celebrations and gatherings.
Readers are again reminded that just weeks ago, the House Homeland Security Committee released a report within which American citizens were warned that the United States faces its highest Islamist terror threat environment since 9/11, and much of the threat now stems from self-radicalized and lone-wolf attackers. This follows statements by FBI Director James Comey that the bureau has over 1000 active terrorism-related investigations underway across all 50 states.
The Department of Homeland Security has identified 99 different protest groups that are expected to demonstrate over a three-day period next weekend. 63 of those protests are scheduled for Inauguration Day. During interviews with Fox News, representatives of the protest group Disrupt J20, for January 20th, stated the following:
"We are planning a series of massive, direct actions that will shut down the inauguration ceremonies and any related celebrations. We’re also planning to paralyze the city.”
It is the group's reported intent to target everything from the parade to the balls, as well as to stop traffic, public transit and parties.
Given the widespread meltdowns, travailing and expressions of rage by the left over Donald Trump's election win (see this and this), these protests will likely be epic.
National Special Security Event
Presidential inaugurations are classified as a national special security event, or NSSE. This designation requires federal agencies to provide full cooperation and support to ensure the safety and security of those participating in or otherwise attending the event, as well as the community within which the event takes place. The U.S. Secret Service in charge of event security, the FBI in charge of intelligence, counter terrorism, hostage rescue and investigation of incidents of terrorism associated with the event, and FEMA in charge of recovery management in the aftermath of terrorist or other major criminal incidents or other catastrophic events.
Approximately 28,000 law enforcement officials from more than three-dozen agencies will provide security at the inauguration and events taking place during surrounding days. At the inauguration, security perimeters will be heavily fortified with large trucks and other pieces of heavy equipment to prevent vehicular attacks.
In addition, roughly 7,500 National Guard soldiers from across the country will come to Washington, along with about 3,000 police officers from various states. The U.S. Coast Guard has established extensive security zones in the maritime areas and the FAA has severe flight restrictions in place for the National Capital Region during the event.
If you are attending this event in Washington DC, or a similar celebration in your home town, AlertsUSA strongly encourages you maintain a high level of vigilance and awareness. Think risk management. Regardless of your location, know where your exits are at all times and pay attention to the hands of those around you.
AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.
