shuttah writes: "In the growing Al-Qaeda activity in Yemen, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton revealed today that "cyber experts" had recently hacked into web sites being used by an Al-Qaeda affiliate, substituting the group’s anti-American rhetoric with information about civilians killed in terrorist strikes. Also this week, a statement from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs revealed the presence an Al-Qaeda video calling for "Electronic Jihad." Was this act of Infomation Warfare a strategic response?

While Yemen is no stranger to Al-Qaeda activity, the terrorist group's presence has become more visible with a recent suicide bombing killing 100 military troops in its capital Sanaa."
