Attack on US embassy in Cairo
September 4, 2018 | Brainwave Science
A would-be bomber tried to hurl an explosive device into the US Embassy in Cairo but was stopped and arrested by Egyptian security forces, according to reports. The man was detained after throwing an explosive device which detonated near the US Embassy.
No casualties were reported. A witness said she heard a blast and then saw a man with a backpack that had caught on fire close to the Semiramis Hotel, across the road from embassy premises. The suspect was also carrying a firearm and a second explosive device, according to Egyptian security forces. The area around the embassy has for decades been heavily policed, with concrete barriers blocking vehicular traffic in its immediate vicinity. The British Embassy is located across the road from the U.S. embassy building.
The US Embassy in Cairo said on its Twitter account that it was aware of the incident and asked people to avoid the area. The area was cordoned off by the security forces shortly after the incident and there was an unusually heavy presence with dozens of officers monitoring the premises.
Since 2013, terrorism has increasingly disrupted life in Egypt, especially in the Sinai. According to the Tahrir Institute, Egypt has suffered more than 1,700 attacks over the past four years. US Embassy has become the soft target for terrorist and extremists in recent years. In September 2012, US Embassy in Egypt was attacked by thousands of men, who were then reported to have scaled the embassy walls, tore down the flag of the United States of America and replaced it with a black Islamic flag. In a recent attack, the US Embassy in Beijing was attacked in the same manner as this. US Embassy around the globe has faced 12 terrorist attacks in a decade.
Today, the Egypt-US partnership is critical not only to the stability of the Middle East and North Africa but also as a bulwark against global terrorism and violent extremism. It is pivotal for the Egyptian government to investigate by using non-invasive, torture-free investigative techniques to obtain important and accurate intelligence and lead to eliminate and arrest the responsible terrorist organization and using the same technology to reverse engineer the terrorist network and eliminate all the existing terrorist network in Egypt.
After the unending war against terrorism, law enforcement personnel hope to interrogate a terrorist suspect with such forensic technology that would allow interrogators a flawless way to extract information about planned attacks and accurately decide whether a suspect is foot-solider or mastermind of the plot. The technology to crush terrorism has already been developed by Brainwave Science and it’s called iCognative. The technology relies on a better-known foolproof source to extract intelligence- Human Brain. This technology can very well be the miracle cure to solve this case with the preservation of human rights as well as the presumption of innocence from a criminal justice perspective.
iCognative‘s dynamic specific screening power when deployed by law enforcement changes the whole power equation. The transformative power of this technology emboldens the meek law enforcement forces to be offensive rather than defensive against terrorizing forces. Easy to learn, automated iCognative can be installed and used with no limitations on any suspect as it supports human rights and is non-invasive.
iCognative when utilized by law enforcement agencies swiftly delivers valuable and accurate intelligence, missing links and other vital information related to this case. With a 45 minutes highly accurate and virtually unbeatable iCognative test, Egypt law enforcement personnel with over 99% accuracy can identify valuable and accurate intelligence such as a terrorist organization behind this attack, Co-conspirator/sympathizers, type of explosives used, and much more vital information associated to this attack. The iCognative system record and analyzes the brainwave response to each specific crime-related information (stimuli), collected through investigations, flashed on a digital screen to arrested suspect and determine with over 99% accuracy if the information under question is present in the suspect’s brain or not.
The sole potential solution for Egypt law enforcement to counterbalance the impact of terrorism and domestic unrest is through Brainwave Science‘s iCognative. This unbeatable weaponry has a proven track record of supporting the law enforcement agencies protecting innocents and help apprehend extremists without any further delay.
