TAKE THEM ALL DOWN
'Let's not let the extremists on the Internet,' " the senior U.S. counterterrorism official said. "I don't think that's possible. Yes, we could go around shutting down Web sites, but it doesn't really work as a strategic weapon against al-Qaeda."
WHO SAID THIS?.... wrong .....wrong...... WRONG in so many ways and on so many levels.
Doesn't work as Strategic weapon...
Leaving up 6,000 terrorist web sites, has worked wonders,
Leaving up their PUBLIC command and control.
Leaving up their propaganda, running 24/7
Leaving up their public recruiting .
Leaving up the links for funding?
We have found sites with phone numbers, even bank account numbers for Public donating to terrorists.
Leaving up their lies, heinous violence videos, beheadings, executions.
THAT HAS ALL WORKED WELL.
SURRENDERING THE INTERNET TO aL QAEDA HAS WORKED WONDERS.
TAKING DOWN HUGE NUMBERS IS A Strategic weapon!!!
If it wasn't for the Internet al Qaeda would have went the way of so many other
terrorists groups, oblivion.
The Military leaders that think the WWW doesn't matter or isn't important in the GWOT
need to be replaced.
The WWW allows al Qaeda to survive.
To sell their contorted view of Islam world wide, to independent self actualizing CELLS.
And some counter terrorism "EXPERT" SAYS:
"shutting down Web sites, but it doesn't really work as a strategic weapon against al-Qaeda."
Is the Military's feat of the Internet endemic?
If we carry the current pardign forward, we have what 12,ooo or 24,000 terrorists sites the USA is ignoring?
Or maybe they are collecting valuable intel from these sites?
The argument seems to be leave the terrorist sites up to collect Intel,
Well the total number have grown to over 4,000. sites.
And the sites are recruiting others and the number of sites continue to grow.
This paradigm will insure the growth of Jahiddie sites, at what point do they put stopping recruitment ahead of intel gathering?
Feels like the cart before the horse.
Watch them grow and collect info???
