Its has been reported that the F.B.I. state and local police are warning local dive shop in Rhode Island and southern Mass. to be on the look out for three to five man trying to buy dive gear (wet suits, mask and tanks). When asked by one dive shop to show certification they were not able to show it and did not even know they had to have it. it has been reported that these man are of middle eastern descent and spoke with a English accent. This on on the heals of three divers spotted around a proposed LNG site. The men around the LNG site where never found after a search my the US Coast Guard and local police.4 July 2007

It was first reported by a local news station WPRI 12 then I followed up with local environmental police I am trying to lock down and post the FBI warning. I will re post as soon as I have that information. On one note the news was mislead about the date of the LNG site. It may have very well happened in 2003 but it happened also in 2007. Living but a block away from the site like myself you are always worried about things like this.

That is one of 3 major hard targets in the north east on the water and I can guarantee you that the protection in all 3 is more than adequate to suppress any challenge that may occur. The feds are continuously performing mock attacks on each of them unannounced. I believe it was the special ops section from Wackenhut that was bounced out of one of them for not passing the challenge a couple of times.
When ever a LNG tanker comes into that port all and every thing is demanded to not move until the tanker which is escorted by several LE agencies and the Coast Guard in modern swift boats has docked and under the jurisdiction of the security force assigned.

All U.S. ports and harbors are now protected by various methods. If an intrusion occurs, above, on, or below the water in any high profile area the information is dispatched in real time to response crews, i.e. swift boats, eod, LE, Coast guard, etc.
I know nothing is 100%, but, believe me it's pretty dang close if not. Just google "miuw": "marine inshore undersea warefare" and "IBU": "inshore boat units". Also the Coast Guard uses similar systems and work closely together with the MIUW and IBU's.
