    Dear Friends and Colleagues:
    According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a loose
    network of antiwar groups is planning a "week of action against
    warmongering" to occur December 15 - 21, 2002.  Organizers, who have
    expressed strong opposition to possible U.S. military action against
    Iraq, are advocating "explicit and direct attack upon the war
    machine," and have called for attacks on the headquarter facilities
    and other assets of oil companies and defense contractors, singling
    out Boeing and Lockheed Martin. Department of Defense (DoD) assets
    also represent potential targets for attack.  Organizers have
    referenced an October 14, 2002 incident in San Jose, California, in
    which DoD recruiting offices were damaged and a DoD recruiting van was
    set on fire.  Activists may also target major media companies by
    "sanitizing" newspaper vending machines, jamming or hijacking radio
    and television signals, or attacking broadcast towers and damaging
    Potential victims should be alert to any suspicious activities that
    may be associated with this week-long protest. Information regarding
    potential threats should be reported to local law enforcement and the
    nearest FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.
