New Video: Recognizing Terrorism Warning Signs

With Department of Homeland Security funding, the Denver-based Center for Empowered Living and Learning (The CELL) produced this new video called "Recognizing the 8 Signs of Terrorism." The video aims to educate Colorado citizens (and citizens everywhere) on their responsibility to recognize and report signs of terrorist activity to law enforcement. The film is narrated by former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway and Denver television news anchor Kim Christiansen.

As portrayed in this short video, the eight signs of terrorism are:
  • surveillance
  • elicitation 
  • tests of security
  • funding
  • acquiring supplies
  • impersonation
  • rehearsal
  • deployment

The CELL is home to the world's only multimedia exhibit about the history and causes of terrorism and the best known policies employed to combat such current and future threats to American citizens and people around the world.

Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Napolitano tells Bloomberg News that federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies are tracking terrorists with "al Qaeda leanings" in the U.S.
