The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has produced a report titled, "Potential Domestic Terrorist Threats to Multi-State Diamond Pipeline Construction Project," dated April 7, 2017. The DHS field analysis report points to lessons from policing the Dakota Access pipeline, saying they can be applied to the ongoing controversy over the Diamond pipeline, which, when complete, will stretch from Cushing, Oklahoma to Memphis, Tennessee. While lacking "credible information" of such a potential threat, DHS concluded that "the most likely potential domestic terrorist threat to the Diamond Pipeline is from environmental rights extremists motivated by resentment over perceived environmental destruction."
