Reported Leaked Memo: FBI, DHS Doc Warns Law Enforcement About Possible Islamic State Attacks on U.S. Soil and Includes Ominous Social Media Guidance

Furthers "our concern that calls to violence by ISIL and its supporters could motivate HVEs to attempt attacks in the Homeland."

An alleged, "for official use only" document leaked Thursday showing the FBI and Department of Homeland Security warning local law enforcement to remain vigilant about possible Islamic State attacks on U.S. soil. In fact, the memo even goes as far as to warn officials to monitor their families' social media accounts so as not to reveal a family member's affiliation with the law enforcement officer.

The memo, obtained by Breitbart and dated October 11, has an ominous title: “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and Its Supporters Encouraging Attacks Against Law Enforcement and Government Personnel.”

The purpose, the memo says, is to "provide information on the potential for Islamic State of the Iraq and Levant US-based sympathizers to carry out attacks on law enforcement and government personnel."

It cites examples of threats that have occurred online and overseas, but says such events "further our concern that calls to violence by ISIL and its supporters could motivate HVEs [homegrown violent extremists] to attempt attacks in the Homeland."

It even warns officials to monitor the social media accounts of family members so as to ensure such members are not placing themselves in danger by revealing their relation to someone who works for the government or law enforcement.

While it says the government is unaware of any specific threats, it says "violent extremists who support ISIL could probably attempt to conduct attacks on US targets overseas with little-to-no warning."
