Center for Strategic Communication

Last night I guest lectured in Stephen Tankel’s class on Al Qaida and information operations.  We were discussing AQ’s lack of television stations and one student noted that the convergence between television and the Internet will probably solve that problem for Al Qaida (or its successors) in the medium term.  After all Al Qaida has a robust presence on the Internet.  I thought that was a very interesting point.  Straight to the head of the class!
