"Message Forums on the internet have become the prime method of communication for terrorist groups and sympathizers. They range from "legitimate"ideological religious and political groups, such as the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Al Muhajiroun, linked to the teachings of the radical Muslim cleric Abu-Hamzaal Masri to; insurgent groups and sympathizers, disseminating information on bomb making, computer hacking and software piracy. They decorate their messages with graphics and artwork honoring their martyrs and sometimes providing insights to their plans or intentions. Some of these graphics and pictures can be useful indicators of terrorist activities or sympathizers, or to help the anti-terrorism investigator identify trends and "badguys." This presentation will focus on those found on insurgent websites and message boards, what they are and what they may mean in an effort to increase your familiarity."
