'Dark Web' Project Takes On Cyber-Terrorism


www.foxnews.com

"Since the events of 9/11, terrorist presence online has multiplied tenfold," says Hsinchun Chen, director of the University of Arizona's Artificial Intelligence Lab. "Around the year 2000, there were 70 to 80 core terrorist sites online; now there are at least 7000 to 8000."

Those sites are doing everything from spreading militant propaganda to offering insurgency advice to plotting the next wave of attacks, making the net, as Chen also points out: "arguably the most powerful tool for spreading extremist violence around the world."

Prediction:

With in the next 16 minutes a post will appear stating 2 things.

1. Hah! Yeah Fox News fair and balanced my a$$!

2. Yeah more scare tactics form the neo-cons to support their cause.

I for one agree with your OP. This is just a snippet of what the Gov. does to combat terror. Heck, this is in the public eye. Imagine what never makes it out!

Could it possibly be that due to the wider definition of "terrorist" that we have these days, that more sites fall under the net? As has been seen many times, peace loving granny or pro-Constitution papa could fall under the definition of "terrorist" according to some government agencies.

Another question, if in fact there are now 8000+ "terrorist" websites out there, what are we going to do to stop the spread of extremist violence? Blow more people up?
