WWW.AL-QAEDA: The Reliance of al-Qaeda on the Internet

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


As this report illustrates, al Qaeda represents the worst that globalization and advanced community technologies have to offer. It is a virtual “network of networks”, a Jihadist franchise marketing its messages of death, as well as coordinating and recruiting on the Internet. Since 9/11, al Qaeda operatives have only sharpened their Internet skills and increased their web presence. The findings reported here come from a more general research project hosted and funded by United States Institute of Peace that summarized nine years of monitoring terrorist presence on the Net in the period between January 1998 and September 2007.
