Former Taliban Spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan on Internet Terror

So don't take Jawa Report's word on how terrorist propaganda is used to sucker young Muslims. Go strait to the source, the Taliban itself.

The recently captured (former) spokesman of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Ehsanullah Ehsan, admitted that his brutish colleagues realised the potential of the Internet very early on.

“They [the TTP] used social media to deviate minds of youth through propaganda,” he admitted in a confessional video statement, “youngsters were the main targets.” The ostensibly born-again militant then requests the younger generation to be cautious and to not fall for propaganda by terror outfits.

However, in 2011, Ehsan was one of the first Pakistani militants to have a presence on social media. He would tweet from his account, @EhsanTTPJA, now suspended, claiming responsibility for terror attacks and would threaten civil society activities and journalists and world leaders through it.
