“Security personnel from the base informed the town of Quantico, the FBI and NCIS,” Bormann said. “While these leaflets may be a hoax, base officials are taking their discovery seriously.”

The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force is leading an investigation to determine if the leaflets are authentic, he said. The leaflets have not been found at any other Marine Corps installations.

The base has not taken any extra security precautions due to the discovery of the leaflets, but the Marine Corps issued an administrative message on Wednesday night telling Marines to report “even the most minor suspicious activity.”

“Every Marine is our first line of defense and we emphasize to them that if they see something, say something,” Bormann said.
