Approved For Release 2000/08/08 : CIA-RDP96-00789R000100240003-2 RiUOR, l July 4th, 1986 Preventable Terrorist Event Site #1 - Not far from the Empire State Building (see map for approximate location), early afternoon, clear, nice day. A sedan and what seems to be a white van are parked along the east side of a one way, north-south, wide street or avenue. The van is behind the sedan. There seems to be two men seated in the van. The man in the passenger seat may have an automatic weapon beside him. Walking around on the sidewalk beside the sedan is a man with black hair and a substantial long mustache (AOL-"Turkish type"). One other man may be seated in the sedan. The man outside the vehicle acts as a leader. He glances occassionally at his watch and also in the direction of the World Trade Center. Later, when the sun is lower and reflecting off of the high-rise glass windows, the leader gets into the sedan and heads south, followed by the van. (Not sure if the leader is driving or is a passenger). Site #2 - See map. Sedan and van drive north up a street (not as wide as an avenue). The leader exchanges glances with a man who is walking slowly south on the sidewalk. Another auto, smaller than the sedan, is parked along the east side of the street, pointed north. This auto was parked here earlier by the man on the sidewalk. Site #2 - Later, after twilight, sky blue-black. Fireworks beginning to go off in the sky in the direction of the harbor. Sedan and van are now near, possibly double-parked, alongside of the smaller sedan. The leader is at the rear of the small sedan; its trunk is open. He is bent over and seems to be doing something with a device which may have been transferred from one of the other vehicles to the small one. This device resembles a long, wide, thick-walled, heavy pipe. It has a sort of box attached to it. Site #3 - Later now. The small sedan is driven by its original driver to a street near the Wall Street part of the city (see map). The vehicle is oriented south and seems to be driving slowly on the right (west) side of the street. It seems that the 'objective' is on the left side of the street, just ahead down this street. At this point, information ceases to be available. Approved For Release 2000/08/08 : CIA-RDP96-00789R000100240003-2 Ap ~Avf2`D~ 1 P.~. a Nv\v L=,..J ~(VLtrN r lid -ITT- -JA ITT, -E. ? _ _... '' ; I.
