U.S. Issues 'Intelligence Bulletin' on ABC News Taliban Video

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security have issued an "intelligence bulletin" regarding the Taliban video broadcast by ABC News on Monday, the Blotter has learned.

The Bulletin, which was issued to law enforcement officials nationwide on Tuesday, states, "ABC News has obtained a video depicting Taliban military commander Mansoor Dadullah introducing suicide teams assigned to carry out attacks in the United States, Canada, Germany, and Great Britain."


The Bulletin goes on to state that while the DHS and FBI have no evidence to suggest a "specific and imminent threat to the Homeland at this time," the agencies will continue to "monitor intelligence for signs of such plotting or any related activity" and urges recipients "to maintain their high level of vigilance because extremists in these groups remain determined to strike in the West, especially the United States."
