It's too bad these are so regular, but this seems to be a rare exception. It says to be on the lookout for a specific Yemeni man.

Although it seems credible, the FBI constantly issues these warnings so that they don't seem totally ignorant when one actually happens.

F.B.I. Warns of Possible Terrorist Attack
By DAVID JOHNSTON

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11 — Based on information law enforcement officials said was obtained from detainees being held at Guantánamo Bay, the F.B.I. tonight issued a new security threat alert, more specific than any one before, warning of the possibility of an attack as early as Tuesday in the United States or Yemen.

The bureau notified 18,000 law enforcement agencies this evening and was to make the threat public on its web site.

"Recent information indicates a planned attack may occur in the United States or against U.S. interests on or around Feb. 12, 2002," the alert said. "One or more operatives may be involved in the attack."

Unlike previous security alerts that had been vague or had no element of timing attached, the alert tonight was highly specific and included both possible perpetrators and the day when the incident might happen. The warning had no reference to any specific terrorist organization, including Al Qaeda.

The alert asked law enforcement agencies "to stop and detain" any of the named individuals in the alert and that all "should be considered extremely dangerous."

The alert identified one possible attacker as Fawaz Yahya al-Rabeei, a Yemeni national born in Saudi Arabia in 1979. It also listed about a dozen associates of al-Rabeei.

A threat alert was already in effect through the Winter Olympics ending on March 11. When that warning was extended on Jan. 3, law enforcement officials said the warning was not based on a specific threat but on general intelligence of the continuing possibility of terrorist attacks against the United States and because the country remained at war with Afghanistan. Since then, the Olympics has driven up the concern among officials.

The bulletin issued to law enforcement agencies tonight listed the names of 16 people, among them Saudis, Yemenis and one man who may be from Tunisia. Law enforcement officials said that they did not know the whereabouts of any of the men or whether any of them might be in the United States.

In recent days, American military officials said the detainees, who include both Al Qaeda and Taliban captives, were becoming more compliant and cooperative.
