The Anti-Terrorism Caucus will give Congress the tools and resources it needs to communicate those threats to the public, as well as help them make more informed decisions when it comes to terrorist issues.”
Thousands of jihadists from all over the world are setting up Web sites and chat rooms and teaching others how to use the Internet to create terror cells in their area. These terrorists are technologically savvy and are very successful in using the Internet to achieve their goals. The U.S. has stepped up its cyber terrorism divisions since 9-11, but we are still far behind the terrorists when it comes to the Internet.
The results have been disastrous as they have learned what weapons are most effective against our armor, how to best attack specific military formations, and how to take out targets as they did on Sept. 11. We must not allow the Internet to be a safe haven for terrorists. In order to shut down jihadists on the Internet, our laws need to be brought into the 21st century. We must amend our laws so our intelligence services can monitor foreign users hosting their Web sites on U.S. servers if there is just cause.
