Worldwide Attack Matrix
The Worldwide Attack Matrix
is a document describing covert anti-terror operations in 80 countries in Asia
, the Middle East
. It was presented by CIA
director George J. Tenet
in a briefing held at Camp David September 15 2001
. The Washington Post
was the first to publicly mention the document in a series published January 2002. At the time of presentation the operations were already going on or being proposed.
The actions, underway or being recommended, would range from "routine propaganda to lethal covert action in preparation for military attacks". The plans, if carried out, "would give the CIA the broadest and most lethal authority in its history".
