There is no specific Al Qaeda website, this is obvious.
What there is though, are forums and chat rooms that members of Al Qaeda visit.
Wouldn't have a clue what and where they are and I'm not about to go looking, don't feel like getting a visit from the AFP.
But it's obvious they're out there and it's obvious they're being monitored.
Take this radio interview as an example:
To another part of the Web now, the SITE Intelligence Group has made a business out of monitoring jihadist websites and chat rooms. Al-Qaida has
used those websites in the past to release statements to followers.
Rita Katz is the executive director of SITE and we called on her to find out what has been posted on those jihadist websites since the news broke that
Osama bin Laden is dead. Rita Katz, welcome. Thanks for being with us.
Ms. RITA KATZ (Executive Director, SITE Intelligence Group): Thank you.
BLOCK: And you have translations of what you’ve been reading. What’s the overall tone of the postings today? Are you seeing a common thread?
Ms. KATZ: Well, in general, the jihadi forum members have expressed a gamut of reactions to bin Laden’s death, ranging from outright denial to
lamenting acceptance. Messages for jihad are still filling the message boards. A lot of members are calling for revenge, calling for attacks on –
right in front of the White House, where all the celebrations were taking place.
Al Jazeera are posting this information too, and they're known for reporting Al Qaeda/Osama stories and messages.
