Strategic Operational Plan Proposal (SOPP) Draft

Click here to download the Strategic Operational Plan Proposal (SOPP) template that is needed to complete this deliverable.

You are an operations officer for the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) and you were instructed by the special agent in charge (SAC) of the task force to develop a Strategic Operational Plan Proposal (SOPP) and to have the first draft as detailed as possible for the SAC's review. He gave you this assignment because you already conducted research on numerous sections of the proposal, and you are expected to incorporate your previous work into this outline. For this first draft, the information needs to be clear and concise, with general substantive work.

The following scenario gives you the necessary information to complete the SOPP:

The al-Qaeda terrorist organization is attempting to infiltrate two cells composed of 12 individuals each into a major metropolitan city in the United States. The al-Qaeda cells are funded by a Russian organized crime faction that is trying to penetrate Chicago, IL and displace Chicago's local syndicate known as The Outfit. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, through external and internal U.S. sources, identified the Russian organized crime (OC) faction and its methodology of money laundering in 2012 but delayed a response because signal intelligence (SIGINT) identified the OC's relationship with al-Qaeda. The city of Chicago was identified as the terrorist organization's main target, but it is not known how the group will gain access to the United States at this time. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) identified that the Russian OC faction is attempting penetration into Chicago's drug, gambling, and prostitution operations for which The Outfit is currently the dominant leader. Chicago police reported three separate assassination-style murders of Russian OC local leaders and attributed the murders to The Outfit.
The National Security Agency (NSA) reported SIGINT between the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) and the Miami-based Russian OC syndicate identifying the transfer of two low-yield nuclear devices to Iranian Ministry of Intelligence operatives at the port of Donetsk, Ukraine during the chaos caused by the separatist move from the Ukrainian government, who in turn where identified by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) as having delivered the two nuclear devices to known al-Qaeda operatives with an unknown destination. The Department of Homeland Security (HLS) has increased the U.S. threat level to elevated.
The CIA identified, through SIGINT (cell phones, texting, and e-mails), that al-Qaeda obtained numerous canisters of sarin gas (also known as GB) and is intent on using it against the United States in retaliation for its role in the Afghan war. The CIA and Department of Defense, U.S. Northern Command Intelligence identified the possible infiltration points for the al-Qaeda operatives to be along the Mexico/U.S. border.
The identification of the leader for terrorist cell number 1 was made by the CIA. The cell is possibly composed of 12 men, of whom 2 are of Arab descent, 7 Philippine, and 1 American. The leader's name is Alwani abu Rayan, but he goes by the alias of Roberto Martinez (his father was Iranian, and his mother was Columbian). The American's name is John Q. Citizen, and he was a resident of Chicago. Chicago FBI conducted a threat analysis based on all source intelligence and identified the O'Hare and Midway International Airports, the McCormick Place Convention Center, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago as possible targets for the potential low-yield nuclear weapons. Through the DEA, the FBI received intelligence that the GB gas is most likely to be used by the second terrorist cell against the leadership of The Outfit. It is believed that the Russian gang may not be aware that their cooperation with the al-Qaeda organization may also include nuclear devices, which may have catastrophic implications to their vision of controlling the territory belonging to The Outfit.
All information has been provided to the FBI, and the FBI has assigned you as their lead planner. You are provided with the additional guidance that the mission parameter dates are from 1 June through 6 July 201X. You were also provided guidance as to the mission: conduct counterterrorist operations in the vicinity of Tucson, AZ to apprehend and destroy terrorist cells infiltrating the United States. Also, conduct counterterrorist operations in the area of Chicago, IL to apprehend and destroy terrorist cells that may have already infiltrated into that area.
The Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) Teams Delta 1 and 2 are assigned to the missions, respectively. Both teams are composed of FBI, HLS, Department of Defense, NSA, DEA, and local law enforcement with a total body count of 45 each.

Analysis of the current situation:

Terrorism is defined as the use of threats and violence in intimidating or coercing in the pursuit of
political aims especially against civilians (Bovenkerk & Chakra, 2004). Organized crimes refer to
criminal activities which are performed on a large scale and controlled and planned by powerful groups.
The organized groups and terrorism of today are so similar that their commonalities are becoming
clearer and their differences are beginning to blur. Organized crimes and terrorism is an ideal match
which may have different goals, but they can achieve their objective through each other. The effects of
technology and globalization, financial institutions, recruiting tactics, methods they share and use to
achieve a task in support of each other, and the underground networks are the major similarities. In the
world of today, terrorism and organized crime do not survive without each other. Their ideologies are
becoming so indifferent and their methods are similar. Terrorist will sometime carry out attacks like

illegal activities, contraband smuggling, bank robberies and kidnapping only for capital benefits to
further their intentions (Bovenkerk & Chakra, 2004). The organized crime groups commit criminal
activities to gain money for power.
A. Discussion of possible or actual terrorist threats to an area of the U.S. or U.S. interest.
Al Qaeda commonly referred to as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant refers to a powerful
terrorist militant group with specifically violent ideologies which call themselves caliphates and claim
religious authorities over all Muslims. It is a Terrorist Organization that was started and motivated by al
Qaida. Al-Qaeda is a powerful Sunni jihadist group which has put under control large Middle East areas
under their governance (Bovenkerk & Chakra, 2004). Infamous for its murderous as well brutal
violence, this terrorist organization and caliphate have accepted the responsibility for various suicide
bombers attacks and other terrorist bombings worldwide; together with the destruction of artworks from
antiquity, building and ancient buildings, as well as priceless monuments.
1. Terrorist organization’s identified or implied mission and objective(s) against the
U.S.
Al Qaida is also referred to as “Salafist jihadists” dedicated to what they view as initial definition of
Islam sacred texts that include Quran (Bovenkerk & Chakra, 2004). They unite that with a belief that the
U.S is the greatest enemy and threat of their faith and a total dedication to violent jihad. The terrorist
organization is barbaric psychopaths’ collection willing to participate in the sordid and most brutal
violence forms without any hesitation of normal human morality born. The grea...
