Terrorist Websites Aided by U.S. Firms
Enom,Inc., a Bellevue, Washington-based company, provides registrar and whois protection services for Hamasonline. The Dread Pirate Bluto has the details here.Enom, Inc., also provides services for 357 Hosting--a Dutch company with ties to terrorists--including the Taliban. A couple of days ago we also pointed readers to this post by Dan on the possible symbolism used by 357 Hosting and its connection to 911. All of this leads me to believe that both the FBI and CIA are operating in pre-911 mode when it comes to dealing with the presence of terrorist organizations on the internet. These sites should be treated as military targets and taken down. Instead, the FBI treats terrorism on the internet as a criminal matter.
Explain to me how it is a bad thing to have anyone interested in supporting or joining Hamas send their ip addresses and with it, their real world physical locations to a website hosted in America?

Again, that is pre-911 thinking. This is not a criminal investigation, it is a war. In war, you take out the assets of the enemy.

A subpeona would get the info from the registrars, would bust the "whois protection" service.

Deception is vital to defeating a guerilla opponent. There are some strategies that only work if the opponent is unaware of the strategy.
I really want to say more because I like being right, but winning this war is more important than me being right, so patriotism requires discretion on this issue.
