But getting back to the point, now it appears that Al Qaeda has figured out the production process and is turning out some hi-fi work. Not to mention the fact that they're utilizing the various new media channels to their advantage. This is where the counter-intelligence game can get really interesting.
Look, we're all entitled to our opinions, but if these guys are sending us all this disturbing, albeit well-manicured, messaging, well, maybe this time we should listen and avoid another 911 tragedy (among many others).
We should also be turning our efforts towards "counter-production" tactics. Instead of recruiting new media talent into agency conglomerates that are more concerned with proliferating useless marketing vernacular and pretending to wield their lofty "integrated strategies", we should send these young mavericks over to the CIA, and inspire some real change. OR, agencies should consider working with our government.
Either way, the power of media is calling us out to rise to the challenge. Maybe we can one-up these bastards by shelling out some wit, as opposed to dispensing mortar shells.
