WASHINGTON – The Internet is the most important venue for the radicalization of Islamic youth, the head of intelligence at U.S. Central Command, said in an interview aired yesterday.

Army Brig. Gen. John Custer and other experts described the effects of terrorists' online recruiting and networking methods during a 60 Minutes interview with correspondent Scott Pelley. "I see 16-, 17-year-olds who have been indoctrinated on the Internet turn up on the battlefield," Custer said. "We capture them; we kill them every day in Iraq, in Afghanistan."

  1. that's it! ban the internets! we can start it up again when people don't hate us.

    They are trying to redefine free speech to politically correct free speech that is acceptable to their agendas.



Don't be scared!
