Maybe our watching those Arab sites in the other thread is not as silly as I thought. It seems that the web is popular for terrorists contacting each other.

Looks like Carnivore is hard at work.....

LONDON (Reuters) - Cyber investigators are scouring the World Wide Web for clues on any future suicide bomb attacks, deploying satellites and other high-tech wizardry to hone in on suspicious Web surfing activity.

Intelligence officials had warned some kind of attack would occur in Saudi Arabia before Sunday's suicide bomb blast in Riyadh after finding evidence on anonymous postings on Arabic Web sites and other forms of Internet chatter. The strike killed at least 18 people and wounded 120 others.

"The Internet is a very useful open source for investigators. But as with any unattributable piece of information, tips must be corroborated and verified, and only then can they be added to the overall intelligence mix," a British cyber investigator told Reuters.

Something has always told me that the Internet is not the major medium for communications. Sure, there may be the odd encrypted thing in graphics, but I am not certain that the internet is a heavy requirement. Look at 9/11, things are much more open and self-evident. Not much secret internet stuff was required for that. I wonder why.

On the other thread I was looking more for suspected al-qaeda propaganda (suspected because I believe they would hide their true identity). I had a feeling they send messages for terror attack plans but that wasn't what I was looking for.
