+ - DHS believes blogs are for terrorists

Submitted by MirrororriM
MirrororriM (801308) writes "An article at USA Today shows The Department of Homeland Security believes that "Blogging and message boards have played a substantial role in allowing communication among those who would do the United States harm," the department said in a recent notice. "I just can't envision a scenario where somebody posts to a message board, 'I'm getting ready to launch an IED at this location,' and the government will find that," said terrorism analyst Matt Devost. This combined with the U.S. preparing itself for massive civil disorder makes me wonder how much longer until we are completely a police state?"
