Dr. Shackleford's Brainstorm: An Army of Anti-Jihadi Cyborg Davids
An interesting proposal similar to what I've advocated for years now. If the cyber-jihadis want to put their best geeks against our best geeks: bring it on, biyotches.
Only, it wouldn't be like an Army of our Davids vs an Army of their Davids. No, it would be more like an Army of Davids on our side vs a brigade of incompetent fools who should have been paying attention in hacking 101, but instead were too busy doing advanced research on whether or not it is harem or halal to wipe with the right hand.But while there are some private groups (such as the SITE Institute) that monitor jihadist activity on the Internet, I haven’t heard of any that actually attack jihadist web sites. Maybe it’s already being done on a small scale, but much more could be done to target the thousands of Islamist web sites. Hackers, take it away . . .Since the idea seems to be also hitting military circles, perhaps my idea of cyber-privateering might actually go somewhere in the future.
