SENSITIVE FOR DS/ICI/PII, OTTAWA FOR RSO

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ASEC PTER
SUBJECT: POTENTIAL THREAT TO POTUS, SECSTATE AND SECDEF


1. (U) Sensitive but unclassified, please protect
accordingly.

2. (SBU) On September 4, 2003, the RCMP in Montreal notified
the RSO's Office that during the month of August, a subject
identified as Eric FOREST, a Canadian citizen, DOB:
04/30/1976, indicated to the RCMP that he would travel to
Washington, D.C. to judge President Bush, Secretary of State
Powell and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld for a "September
11th conspiracy." Although FOREST indicated he would cause
the three no harm, he also indicated that he was "Jesus
Christ" and that as such, he would be judging them.

3. (SBU) FOREST later called the RCMP and indicated that
President Bush had been arrested and that he had to travel to
Washington to judge the President.

4. (SBU) On August 31st, the RCMP contacted the Montreal
Police Department which arrested FOREST on a previously
issued warrant. During the arrest procedure, it was decided
that FOREST would be referred to psychiatric hospitals for
evaluation, however, because of Canada's privacy laws, it is
now unclear as to whether or not FOREST is still under
psychiatric observation in Montreal, or if he has been
released.

5. (U) The POC for this matter is RSO Michael H. Nelson,
AmConGen Montreal, (514) 398-0731.
