Al Qaeda is on Facebook

File under: no sh*t, Sherlock:

Terrorist groups are using Facebook to share operational information and to target, recruit and radicalize members of the general public, according to a Department of Homeland Security report obtained by

The DHS report, "Terrorist Use of Social Networking Sites: Facebook Case Study," notes while terrorists have been using social networking sites for quite some time, their strategies for exploiting Facebook have evolved and that they have learned "the inherent value in exploiting a non-ideological medium."

It's good to know that the DHS is catching on to this. But is it just me that worries that the DHS is only two or three years behind a sucky blog like ours?
