+ - EU boss wants to censor the internet

Stony Stevenson writes: European Union Justice and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini has called for ISPs to censor internet searches in an effort to stop terrorists gathering information.

Frattini said that freedom of information should take second place to denying terrorists access to bomb making instructions or other information that could be useful. "I intend to carry out a clear exploring exercise with the private sector on how it is possible to use technology to prevent people from using or searching dangerous words like 'bomb', 'kill', 'genocide' or 'terrorism'," he said.
