Defending the cyber landscape for God and country

What’s It All About

Limiting the ability of terrorists to use the Internet as an operational platform is one of the most significant challenges that lawmakers and national security experts face. The problem could not be more central to winning the war on terrorism.

One of the great ironies of the Internet era is that the very characteristics of the Internet that appeal to government, industry, and private users are some of the same dynamics that make it an ideal operational tool for global terrorist movements. Despite an ever-growing number of Islamic extremist Web sites used to incite or plan violent attacks, the efforts of the United States and other governments around the world have been ineffective at disrupting terrorist-affiliated sites and preventing cyber jihadists’ from spewing their propaganda to the world.

Many violent extremist Web sites have become one–stop terrorist recruitment, training, and planning centers. As traditional means of travel and communication have become increasingly difficult for terrorists, terrorist-related Internet sites have become the de facto way for them to accomplish their mission objectives. Operating with unprecedented openness, jihadist Web masters are capitalizing on our deep respect for freedom of speech to the point that it is costing the lives of our soldiers and increasingly diminishing our way of life.

These jihadist Web sites are operational tools of terrorists and thus they deserve to be treated like the weapons of terrorism they are. Just as screaming “fire” in a movie theater legally exceeds tolerable limits on freedom of speech, so should these Web sites be addressed through legal means. They should justifiably draw a response from law enforcement. Inciting violence against innocent people should likewise be intolerable to peaceful societies. Yet, governments seem powerless to stop them – lost in a fog of how to legally and ethically respond.

We can wait no longer. It is our duty to respond to these threats in a way which protects life, liberty, and justice for all people. Enough is enough.

  15. cawscw April 10, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    My new hero, finally someone who is doing something meaningful to up set the terrorists. Thank You.

  16. Brian Bass April 10, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    I have to wonder if the government/law enforcement would do anything more than monitor sites that exist for the purpose of pedophilia connections, hate group connecting, abortion clinic bomb planning, teh mingling of mass murderers, communications among those planning to assasinate a public official or take out law enforcement officers? My guess is that these sites exist, are monitored and continue to be support groups for those involved. I don’t know, I just want to go away from all that crap. Our government is more culpable for the deaths of thousands of Marines, Soldiers, Airman, Sailors and Coasties as any armed enemy when politicians put us into the field then prevent us from engaging the enemy affirmatively; when they nail us with rules of engagement that are suicidal; then make pilots fly the same routes into and out of the same targets only to bomb the same rubble day after day and never take the fight to the ememy’s home soil. Al Qaida Hamaas, all those guys need to be brought down in more ways than one and Islam is not a fuzzy, loving religeon. To project it as sweet and caring is just as dangerrous as a waist bomb in a fireworks factory.

    THANK YOU! I’m glad to see someone with the requisite knowledge, experience and courage stepping up and doing the right thing! “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” – Edmund Burke You, good sir, are doing something. Thank you.

    God bless you raptor and may our dear lord watch over you

  19. Allan Reyer April 10, 2012 at 2:54 pm

    God bless you and anyone who stands up for Christ our saviour. The government is sure doing everything it can to get God removed from our country. God Bless the USA!

  20. Stuart Carrol April 10, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    Sir, what a pleasure to read about your endeavours on behalf of all free people. It seems our Governments do not take the time or effort to take down these sites and disrupt communications (if they are doing this, good on them too!). Keep it up, you are working on behalf of humanity. God Bless.

  21. MRH April 10, 2012 at 3:05 pm

  29. Mike April 10, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    Dear Th3raptor
    Many thanks for what you’re doing in our behalf. My personal view is that Islam is antithetical to our United States Constitution, and therefore cannot coexist with Her.
    Our “politically correct” society is largely to blame, with Islam there to take advantage of the rip in our moral fabric. No longer are we “One Nation Under God”…we are falling into the same trap which has caught France, Switzerland, England, Germany, Denmark and on and on. The United States is also threatened under Islams repressive and sadistic weight.
    I personally believe, if “muslims” were required to actually read the Qu’ran, they’d drop it.
    Since our government would rather ignore the problem, we must do what we may to secure a free future for our country/children. As a Vietnam Vet, all I can repeat is what a friend of mine said. What happened to the country I fought for?.
    Deo volente

  30. John Smith April 10, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    I salute you and your friends for a job well done. Continue your work, PLEASE

  33. Ouch it hurts April 10, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    BTW…. good job in picking a server in Chicago to host your website. ( 74.200.243.251 ) Might want to brush up on what our very own gooberment is up to.

    http://cryptome.org/nsa-ussid18.htm

    Might also want to take a look at the Partiot Act & more specifically the definition of a “Domestic Terrorist”.

    And I quote: (From page 376 – http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/PLAW-107publ56/pdf/PLAW-107publ56.pdf)

    “‘‘(B) appear to be intended—
    ‘‘(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
    ‘‘(ii) to influence the policy of a government by
    intimidation or coercion; or
    ‘‘(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by
    mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
    ‘‘(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction
    of the United States.’’.”

    You sir, are by definition… a “Dometstic Terrorist”. That’s another double edged sword that can be swung back at you.

    • th3raptor April 12, 2012 at 8:37 pm

      You know what, Thorn? I’m not going to post the first part of your rant because it doesn’t belong on MY blog. If you want a blog of your own, I suggest you take the time to create one.

      As for you tracing me, well, you got me. Why don’t you go kick the door down at that address and take everyone who lives there to jail?

      No!

      Wait!

      Don’t do that because some totally innocent person lives in that state, and in that city, and at that address that deserves better than to come face to face with a mental giant of your stature.

      Oh, and by the way, Thorn: Your IP address is 24.245.75.40…..and I DO know where you are.

      So, next time, before you go postal on someone about how good you are at tracing people, it just might be a good idea for you to go out and buy a book, then read it (if you can), and then learn to check your own work. You may also want to visit TOR Project .org while you’re at it, genious.

      Now, run along because we’re trying to accomplish good things around here and you’re getting in the way.

      Thanks for visiting, Thorn. You come ‘on back anytime, ya hear?

      • betyangelo April 12, 2012 at 9:11 pm

        He may as well have called you a turnip, he makes that much sense.

      • n00b April 12, 2012 at 9:33 pm

        I suppose, from what was posted, that Thorn buys into the idea that what constitutes terrorism is relative to the viewer. And based on our definition we are committing acts of terrorism just by defending ourselves from it. I was just introduced to this idea by a professor at the college I’m attending… I’m sad to see it come up again so quickly, it must be catching on with the masochistic crowd. By that argument almost every act of self defense is deplorable. The USA is the only country with enough freedom to allow this type of belief to persist outside a psychiatric ward. Thanks for helping protect that freedom Raptor.

  34. Brian Sullivan April 10, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Keep going! And thank you for what you are doing. I pray to Allah that these animals are stopped!

  35. jon April 10, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    Finally some real action taken. Thank you.

  36. Jt April 10, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    Give em Hell! Wish I could do what you do!! Maybe if alot of our brilliant youths got more involved in, we could stop them forever.

  37. Scott April 10, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Great job Raptor. These scumbags who worship death, camels, and anything but humanity deserve nothing since all they do is deliver death. Since they care nothing about people and kill anyone or anything and then shout ‘allah akbar” they dont deserve the internet or anything. They are the scum of the earth and unfortuantly we all know the next world war will because of these murdering scumbags.

  38. smokeybehr April 10, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    Keep on pwning the hirabi!

  39. Noel K. Desmond April 10, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    All American’s must do what we can to defend and support our country and troops. As a disabled American veteran and grandfather, I have run my own web site for the past three years (www.soundoffgov.com) in defense of our nation against our enemy’s, both domestic and foreign. Rise up Americans, defend your country, you have no where else to go. More power to you Raptor.

  40. Ryan Fay April 10, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    You sir, are a gentleman and a scholar. I for one applaud what you are doing and God Bless you for taking the fight to these terrorists where they have prospered for so long. If only there were more people like you, hackers wouldn’t have such a bad name.

  41. Eddie Thompson April 10, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    I wish I had your skill sets. As it is, I dropped out of PC programming in the early 70’s to earn a living, the rest is history. Kudos!
