According to intelligence reporting, two Norway-based East Turkestan Islamic Party (ETIP) associates on 08/07/2008 held a telephonic discussion about a possible threat to the Olympic Games. In the course of the conversation, reference was made to the number "8", the travel of an unidentified person to Beijing on 08/08/2008, and speculation about whether "it" would explode.

The Chinese Ministry of State Security (MSS) in mid-August told U.S. officials of its findings regarding four telephone numbers possibly associated with a plot to conduct an attack against the President of the United States during the Olympic Games (ref. a). Two of the numbers reportedly were no longer working, one was connected to an associate of a World Uighur Congress (WUC) member, and one was associated with the former wife of a Norway-based East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM)
member. In response to a U.S. request for more information about the travel of an ETIM member between Dubai, Hong Kong, and Beijing, the MSS claimed its investigation did not reveal the individual had entered or exited China, but noted it was continuing to investigate. The U.S. President departed Beijing on 08/11/2008 without incident.
