AQ and IT
Posted by Warren Strobel
McClatchy Blog

Today's reading: Mark Lynch over at Abu Aardvark has an interesting take on how advanced information technology is affecting Al Qaida. There's a lot there, but bottom-line, Lynch concludes that AQ is losing its edge here, and the very technological forces that helped propel the terrorist group to prominence could prove to be an Achilles' Heel.

"Overall, those technologies which have empowered AQ to date seem to have largely run their course," he writes. Article:

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
It's actually a very interesting problem in information theory, but hardly unique to Al Qaida.
