How many suicide bombers were recruited by the Al-Shabaab website while it was left to operate in Vancouver WA, USA?
The far left liberal Newspaper "The Columbian" can take shots at private investigator Bill Warner but when the case is proved that the www.kataaib.net is run by terrorists and had to be shut down by a US government order, they don't report the facts.
See here the Columbian Newspapers article on "Free Speech" blubbering over the terror website;
In our view: Internet Censor Wednesday, May 7 1:00 a.m. COLUMBIAN EDITORIAL STAFF A Florida man's heart might be in the right place, but he is misguided in his bid to get a Vancouver Internet service company to drop a Somali-language Web site. Bill Warner, a Sarasota private investigator ( www.wbipi.com ), wants Dotster Inc. of Vancouver to refuse service to www.kataaib.net.
Warner, who has launched similar purge efforts in other cities with
other Internet companies, says kataaib.net supports an al-Qaida organization in Somalia, where war and genocide are tragic facts of daily life."There are groups like this one that associate with al-Qaida through Web sites that help promote the ideology, help find new recruits and help the effort to support terrorism," Warner said in a Tuesday Columbian story by Courtney Sherwood. "It's not freedom of speech. This site should not be hosted in Vancouver."
Another problem with Warner's approach is the danger of it
leading to abuses. If Web service is denied because of protests from concerned citizens, what would be next after kataaib.net ? Political-advocacy pages? The ACLU? The National Rifle Association? Minor political parties?"We can't just arbitrarily go in and shut down sites based on what someone finds offensive.
Somalia Al-Shabaab (Al-Qaeda) terrorist website www.kataaib.net is shut down, the Domain Pending Cancellation Per US Government Order on Jan 23 2009. The Columbian Newspaper sure looks like a fool now !
