The semantics in their communication are very revealing.
"Forums... have been closed for Technical reasons..."
Note they did NOT say they closed them.
"They will be non-fuctional from the date of the publication of this announcement"
Dated Sept, 29 , 2008.
In fact some of the sites were closed well before this date.
"We are not aware of any addresses or websites for these forums presently on the INTERNET."
They are admitting they are not the webmasters, and admit they might not know all of the
URL's for the websites. Paradigm Intel suggests they have not been in contact with all the webmasters so are not sure. And this confirms they did not order the sites down, as they don't know all the webmasters.
1,000 sites shut down on orders from whom?
No one, no terror group has that kind of authority or power.
There is not that kind of unity in the Intenet Jahiddie community.
"Any news you hear about the reopening of some of these web sites are incorrect."
" unless it is announced though al Fajar"
They don't know how the sites were knocked down, and won't put up new sites till they do know.
They deny that any of the offices of these websites have fallen into enemy hands.
"since when have jihadi websites had permanent offices."
They don't they have permanent computers. And have not assured the ummah that the PC's haven't fallen into enemy hands, or gotten access.
They are scrambling to do some spin control not to look like fools.
They don't know but have to say something.
And they are saying when we figure this out they will try again.
They still don't have a count of downed terror web sites.
They are still doing damage control.
Spin me right round:
