Report: Britain to Use Google Against Terrorists

from Fox News

The British government may be deploying a new weapon against terrorists: Google.

According to the tech-related news site The Register, the Home Office’s Office for Security and Counter Terrorism plans to work with “approved” Islamist Web sites to “flood the Internet” with pro-Western viewpoints.

It will train the operators of the pro-Western sites in search-engine optimization, an arcane strategy that basically makes sure your site is near the top of Google, Yahoo and Microsoft LiveSearch results pages.

That way, young British Muslims searching online for say, “jihad,” will get pro-Western Web sites instead of Al Qaeda mouthpieces, or so the theory goes.
