FBI alert: Family members of military personnel being approached by ‘Middle Eastern males’

They’re approaching the wives of servicemen with veiled threats.

Even if the White House can’t use the words “Muslim” and “extremist” in the same sentence, the FBI is at least taking domestic Islamic terrorism seriously — especially in light of events that have, until recently, been kept mum.

On July 2, the Denver division of the FBI issued an Activity Alert concerning “Middle Eastern males” approaching the family members of those in active military service.

It reads:

(U//FOUO) In May 2015, the wife of a US military member was approached in front of her home by two Middle-Eastern males. The men stated that she was the wife of a US interrogator. When she denied their claims, the men laughed. The two men left the area in a dark-colored, four-door sedan with two other Middle-Eastern males in the vehicle. The woman had observed the vehicle in the neighborhood on previous occasions.

(U//FOUO) Similar incidents in Wyoming have been reported to the FBI throughout June 2015. On numerous occasions, family members of military personnel were confronted by Middle-Eastern males in front of their homes. The males have attempted to obtain personal information about the military member and family members through intimidation. The family members have reported feeling scared.

(U//FOUO) To date, the men have not been identified and it is not known if all the incidents involve the same Middle-Eastern males. If you have any information that may assist the FBI in identifying these individuals, or reporting concerning additional incidents; in Colorado please contact the FBI Fort Collins Resident Agency at 970-663-1028, in Wyoming please contact the FBI Cheyenne Resident Agency at 307-632-6224.

(U) This report has been prepared by the DENVER Division of the FBI. Comments and queries may be addressed to the DENVER Division at 303-629-7171.

On July 16, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24, made a brazen attack targeting two Chattanooga, Tennessee military installations, killing four Marines and one U.S. Navy sailor before he was himself killed.

It’s getting serious, despite what the White House says.
