ATTEMPTED TERROR ATTACK IN PARIS ON CHARLIE HEBDO ANNIVERSARY:
On 07 January, on the one year anniversary of the
Charlie Hebdo Attack, a man carrying a knife and what was later
determined to be a fake suicide belt attempted to enter a police station
in the 18th district in northern Paris. Shouting "Allahu Akbar," he was
shot dead by French police and police discovered that he was carrying a piece of paper with the ISIS flag printed on it. One year earlier, on 07 January 2015, three men (Cherif KOUACHI, Said KOUACHI, and Amedy COULIBALY) conducted attacks throughout Paris. The KOUACHI brothers killed 10 journalists at the office of Charlie Hebdo on 07 January. Then on 08 January, COULIBALY shot dead a French policewoman. On 09 January, there were twin hostage standoffs with the KOUACHI brothers being killed at Dammartin-en-Goele. In an attack/hostage situation at a Kosher grocery supermarket, four hostages were killed. COULIBALY was also killed after French police stormed the supermarket after the resolution of the other hostage situation.
1998: Kelly Therese WARREN, a former U.S. Army clerk, who was arrested as part of the Clyde Lee CONRAD spy ring, which passed classified defense information to the East Bloc, was sentenced to 25 years in prison. From 1986 to 1988, she had been assigned as an administrative assistant in the section that handled war plans for the Army’s 8th Infantry Division Headquarters in Germany. WARREN was recruited by fellow spy ring member Roderick RAMSAY. Among the documents she passed to Hungarian and Czech agents were secret U.S. and NATO plans for the defense of Western Europe in the event of a Soviet bloc attack. WARREN met CONRAD on the base, at a bowling alley and at a church in Germany to trade her documents for cash.
"Eccleston admitted that he attempted to compromise, exploit and damage
U.S. government computer systems that contained sensitive nuclear
weapon-related information with the intent of allowing foreign nations
to gain access to that information or to damage essential systems.
Protecting our national assets from cyber intrusions is one of our
highest priorities. We must continue to evolve and remain vigilant in
our efforts and capabilities to confront cyber-enabled threats and
aggressively detect, disrupt and deter them.” - Assistant Attorney
General for National Security John P. Carlin, 02 February 2016.
