Terrorist on YouTube

According to a recent article published by Reuters, "Islamic extremists are being instructed on how to use the popular video-sharing site YouTube as a way to disseminate propaganda videos." Specifically, online jihadist are being encouraged to participate in a "YouTube Invasion" and have been provided "several screenshots showing step by step instructions on how to create a YouTube account and to upload material."

Im not really sure why this story is "news" as we have known for quite some time that jihadist and other terrorist groups upload propaganda videos to YouTube and other video sharing websites.

It's possible that this latest effort to create a "YouTube Invasion" is a direct response to the increasing inability of Internet jihadists to keep their primary online forums operational.
