Sandcrawler PSA: Shut Up Kid!

Well its that time of year once again, that time when we are all reminded how little class and originality today's protesters actually have....

I'm thankful this year to still be alive! And for Rusty and Vinnie and all the other Jawas.

So the Jawas are all going to have a Thanksgiving dinner that can't be beat and we're not going to blog until the next morning. Kid.

Update: Seriously.

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

Dear Facebook

If you had to suspend the same terrorist's account seven times, we at Jawa Report call that a clue.

The ISC's report identified a "substantial" online exchange during December 2012 between Adebowale and a foreign-based extremist - referred to as Foxtrot - who had links to the Yemen-based terror group AQAP, but was not known to UK agencies at the time.

After the murder of Fusilier Rigby an unidentified third party provided a transcript of the conversation to GCHQ.

The information was also said to have revealed that Facebook had disabled seven of Adebowale's accounts ahead of the killing, five of which had been flagged for links with terrorism.

This had been the result of an automated process, according to GCHQ, and no person at the company ever manually reviewed the contents of the accounts or passed on the material for the authorities to check.

GCHQ noted that the account which used the phrase "Let's kill a soldier" was not one of those closed by Facebook's software.

I mean I'm just saying, but I'm sure you're the smart people.

UK Report on Lee Rigby Murder Faults Facebook

Independent:

Facebook was the US web firm that the UK said could have prevented the murder of Lee Rigby, according to reports, after it failed to flag a ‘graphic and emotive’ online chat to British intelligence services.

The Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) criticised the company for failing to flag a conversation in which killer Michael Adebowale told another person to kill a soldier, though members of the committee as well as David Cameron have refused to name it. A number of media outlets have now named Facebook as the site at the centre of the allegations.

The ISC said that if the site had told MI5 about the threat, the killing “could have been prevented”. If the exchange in December 2012 had been picked up, Adebowale would have become a top priority for the security services, the report said.

Facebook said that it guards against terrorist content appearing on the site.

"Like everyone else, we were horrified by the vicious murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “We don’t comment on individual cases but Facebook’s policies are clear, we do not allow terrorist content on the site and take steps to prevent people from using our service for these purposes."

Which is pretty much a bald faced lie. We find that while those who oppose Islamic Terror groups are regularly harassed and banned from Facebook terrorists and their supporters find a safe haven.

Its unclear if this is because facebook fears backlash from groups such as CAIR accusing them of Islamophobia or if its part of the "Watch Only" policy that intelligence agencies espouse that actually end up being harmful in the long run. Recruits are drawn in at a much higher rate than they can be monitored.

Although now they Cyber Jihad has expanded to such a large extent from the days when Jawa Report was created that a take down policy and interfere policy would be too little way way too late.

A quick check of Facebook today show that Islamic State supporters are still on Facebook chatting away promoting IS and terrorism unmolested by the so called Facebook moderators.

So Facebook can't find the groups with ISIS, ISIL in their name?

(suspended even by twitter) Not Facebook

That took me two minutes, with time I'm sure there is more. And I don't even use Facebook anymore.
