1. Post's Emergency Action Committee (EAC) met on
October 27, 2008, to discuss security planning
for an Election Night event at the Chief of
Mission residence on November 4, 2008.
Approximately 150 guests are expected and USINT
will employ a variety of physical and technical
countermeasures to ensure the security of all
attendees.
2. Based on current threat information, host
country vigilance, and the utilization of USINT
security assets, the EAC is confident that
security planning for Election Night meets Post's
needs.
