From the article: 'Celebrated for his computer expertise, Irhabi 007 had propelled the jihadists into a 21st-century offensive through his ability to covertly and securely disseminate manuals of weaponry, videos of insurgent feats such as beheadings and other inflammatory material...

But our future security is going to depend increasingly on identifying and catching the shadowy figures who exist primarily in the elusive online world.'"
