As concerns mount that teams of suicide bombers may have already left Pakistan in an attempt to reach targets in the United States, Great Britain, Germany and Canada, the Blotter on ABCNews.com has posted the full one-hour-plus video of the Taliban graduation ceremony that took place in Pakistan on June 9.

Earlier this week, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued an "intelligence bulletin" regarding the video, stating that while there is no evidence to suggest a "specific and imminent threat to the Homeland at this time," the agencies will continue to "monitor intelligence for signs of such plotting or any related activity" and urges recipients "to maintain their high level of vigilance because extremists in these groups remain determined to strike in the West, especially the United States." Today, multiple terror warnings are coming out of Germany, and security is being increased there after German authorities received intelligence reports indicating threats of potential suicide bomb attacks. Earlier this month, just a few days after the graduation ceremony, two German nationals were captured along the border of Pakistan and Iran. The men are suspected of being militant Islamists and were carrying large amounts of cash and fake IDs. While those two men were caught, there are new fears that others made it out of Pakistan and are on their way to their intended targets.
