A high ranking Canadian military official claims the Internet poses a major security threat to Canadian soldiers fighting against the Taliban in Afghanistan. General Peter Atkinson says Facebook is being used by soldiers to convey information to family members about what is going on in Afghanistan, but, the Taliban is accessing that information in order to determine the accuracy and effectiveness of their attacks. “Because of the speed and capacity of today’s technology, we are virtually providing the enemy with his battle damage assessment instantly. We need to make their collection efforts as difficult as possible by denying them 80 percent of the solution.”
OK, Facebook users, just remember the enemy is always keeping tabs on what you say or do. Of course, so is the CIA, but they are the good guys so just let them in on all conversations in the name of democracy.
