How I Became a Jihadist Sympathizer

Originally from the Mid East Quarterly, a fascinating story of a true patriot and a very brave citizen. I wonder what would happen if more of us took up this challenge, or at least some of our more computer savy did so. It has a nice summary which goes like this:
If we are to defeat Al-Qaeda and all it encompasses, governments need to develop a better understanding of the ways Al-Qaeda and its affiliates use the Internet and technology. Intelligence agencies must be allowed to “think outside the box” and incorporate creative strategies that allow them to anticipate where the terrorist movements might next carve their path on the Internet. Western governments lag behind in Internet cyber-warfare with Al-Qaeda. If they do not catch up, they will not gain the upper hand in the war on terror. (full story)
