Terrorist Websites Aided by U.S. Firms

Enom,Inc., a Bellevue, Washington-based company, provides registrar and whois protection services for Hamasonline. The Dread Pirate Bluto has the details here.

Enom, Inc., also provides services for 357 Hosting--a Dutch company with ties to terrorists--including the Taliban. A couple of days ago we also pointed readers to this post by Dan on the possible symbolism used by 357 Hosting and its connection to 911.

All of this leads me to believe that both the FBI and CIA are operating in pre-911 mode when it comes to dealing with the presence of terrorist organizations on the internet. These sites should be treated as military targets and taken down. Instead, the FBI treats terrorism on the internet as a criminal matter.
