New Methods in the Terror War

The real front lines of the Terror War are our television screens. Leveraging the free publicity terrorists get in the media, they make their own videos to guarantee more air time. Improving on their usually low-quality videos, terrorists in Iraq have recently released a mini-documentary showing how they work. Part recruitment film, part advertisement, the highlight of the video is bombing assassination of the former chairman of the Iraqi Governing Council, Izzedine Salam. Read more about it here. As we have said all along, the battle against terror cannot be won until the media itself turns on the terrorists and starts vilifying them instead of advertising them.
