FOX VIDEO TAMPA - For terrorists, the internet is a virtual town square. It’s used by Al Qaeda for recruiting and training. The FBI knows this, and so does Bill Warner, a private eye in Sarasota, Florida who spends his time online tracking terrorist websites.
“They got this Jihad Jane, Jihad Jamie, these people are popping out of the woodwork now,” Bill Warner said, explaining why he tries to get these sites shut down. He is one of a growing number of people trying to smoke out terror groups. Aaron Weisbard, who runs a web site called Internet Haggannah, has a similar goal.
Weisbard says sometimes terrorist recruiting information isn't in plain view. It's often hidden in places you'd never expect. Terrorist files were stored on a web site for the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department. Weisbard claims some of the credit for uncovering this information. It led to the capture of a notorious terrorist that went by the name Irhabi 007.
”Communications is the number one weakness of any terrorist group,” agrees Joseph Navarro who retired after 25 years at the FBI. Navarro specializes in counterterrorism and has written several books on the subject. Bill Warner says whenever he gets information, he's careful to work with law enforcement, and so far it's always worked out.
