A Q's Web of Terror.....MySpace

excerpt: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=1706430&page=...

In a secret basement, the officers collected a treasure trove of computer equipment, including several laptops, printers and CD burners, as well as advanced video equipment.

While this discovery provided Pakistani and American counter-terrorism officials with a unique insight into al Qaeda's operations after 9/11, it only confirmed what they already knew about the organization's heavy reliance on modern information technology and, more specifically, the Internet.


High-Tech Terrorism

After relying heavily on fixed and thus vulnerable Web sites until early 2002, al Qaeda quickly switched to hiding its online operations within more legitimate bulletin boards and Internet sites offering free upload services or connecting through such popular social network sites as Orkut and MySpace.

2. Who writes this drivel?
Like they're supposed to use carrier pidgeons? Are we supposed to be stunned that OBL can read? How about cell phones? Are the terrists exploiting cell-phones too? I'll bet they use email. This is a good example of how racism makes you think stupid thoughts.
