On April 16, 2015, just three days before the twentieth anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing that took 171 lives, the Department of Homeland Security issued a Joint Intelligence Bulletin with the FBI titled “Twenty Years after Oklahoma City Bombing, Domestic Extremism Remains a Persistent Threat.” It can be downloaded in PDF format here.

The document consists of seven-(7) pages and addresses the threat of “homegrown” or “domestic” terrorism, specifically “in the context of the 20th anniversary of the1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building…” The document provides that “[D]omestic extremism… remains a persistent threat, and the United States has experienced violent ideologically-motivated criminal acts, both prior to and after the Oklahoma City attack. These acts include assaults, arsons, shootings, and use, or attempted use, of improvised incendiary and explosive devices, resulting in death, injury, and property damage.”

The jointly issued bulletin provides a bulleted list of 18 “significant plots and incidents” that occurred from 1 January 2014 through 1 April 2015. Among the incidents classified as a terrorist incident was the response by members of the patriot movement to the Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada in April, 2014. According to this bulletin, the BLM suspended their operations due to “militia extremist threats.”
