Summary
-------



1. (SBU) Summary: The Deputy Chief of Mission chaired a
meeting of the core Emergency Action Committee December 1 to
review the Embassy's security posture prior to the local
weekend. Members noted no new threat reporting specific to
Oman, and concluded that there have been no substantive
changes in the local security environment since the last
meeting (reftel). Accordingly, the Committee concurred that
the Embassy's already heightened security posture and FPCON
remain appropriate. End Summary.

Security Environment


--------------------------





2. (SBU) The Deputy Chief of Mission chaired a meeting of
the core Emergency Action Committee ("EAC") December 1 to
review the Embassy's security posture prior to the local
weekend. Noting no new threat reporting specific to Oman,
nor any changes in previously reported assessments of threat
environment, the EAC continued to characterize the local
security situation as stable.



--------------------------


Sustained Vigilance


--------------------------





3. (SBU) Prior to concluding the meeting, RSO reiterated
that members of the EAC should continue reinforcing to both
their staffs and family members the need for vigilance
regarding all aspects of personal security, including the
need to maintain a low profile and to remain unpredictable.
RSO also re-emphasized the importance of immediately
reporting suspicious activity or security-related incidents,
especially those involving suspected surveillance, to Post
One.



--------------------------


Conclusion


--------------------------





4. (S/NF) The EAC concluded that there has been no
substantive change in the local security environment since
the last meeting held on November 27 (reftel), and that the
Embassy's already heightened security posture and FPCON
remain appropriate. Nonetheless, the EAC remains acutely
aware of the need to monitor both the regional and local
security and threat environments, and is prepared to take the
necessary countermeasures should changes to either occur.
DCM, RSO, RMAS, P/E, CONS, DAO, OMC (USDR), and ECA
(USCENTAF) participated in the meeting.
