Terrorists using ‘dark net’ to plot: report
Mon, Apr 09, 2018 - WARNING MESSAGE: Authorities must deny extremists the use of ‘safe havens’ in cyberspace, a researcher at the British think tank the Henry Jackson Society says
Terrorists and extremists are creating growing numbers of safe havens on the “dark net” to plot future attacks, raise funds and recruit new followers, new research reveals. Terrorist organizations and individuals are evading security services and intelligence agencies by “hiding in the shadows” of the darknet, using encrypted messaging services, to communicate and anonymous cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin to generate funds. Researchers for the Henry Jackson Society, a foreign policy think tank in London, said in Terror in The Dark: How Terrorists Use Encryption, the Darknet and Cryptocurrencies that groups have also been able to create a reservoir of extremist propaganda, saving it from deletion by the security services or tech companies.

Following the five terror attacks last year on British soil, the UK government has dedicated more time and funds to tackling online extremism, yet the report argues that more attention should be paid to the dark net because extremists are still able to operate unchallenged on the anarchic platform. Researchers said that the current encrypted communication app of choice is Telegram, which the Islamic State group has encouraged members to use, with messages including explanations on how to access new dark net sites linked to the group. In November last year, an al-Qaeda-linked organization called al-Sadaqah used a public channel on Telegram to campaign for bitcoin funding.

The report’s author, Nikita Malik, director of the Centre for the Response to Radicalisation and Terrorism at the Henry Jackson Society, said: “We have denied Islamic State territory in the real world, but it has a whole new safe haven in cyberspace which we need first to understand and then to close down.” “The authorities must move urgently to increase their knowledge of terrorists’ activities in cyberspace and their use of technologies such as bitcoin. Regulation in this area has to move carefully if we are to balance liberties with guarding against threats to our security — but the time has come to deny extremists the space they need online to plan fresh atrocities,” she said.

Malik identified numerous sites on the dark net that explain how to make TATP — triacetone triperoxide — which can be made from household chemicals and was used in the militant attacks in Paris in November 2015, Brussels in March 2016, Manchester in May last year and Parsons Green, London, in September last year. One study last year found that of 811 arms-related listings on 24 darknet cryptomarkets, 208 were e-books with instructions for the manufacture of explosives or firearms at home. A preliminary search on the dark net on Jan. 18 by Malik found 1,101 results for instructional material related to “security,” including guides on drugs, fraud, hacking and firearms.

Apart from the CIA and other Deep State actors, the most dangerous terrorist organization in the USA is the National Rifle Association.

What's their death toll?

Oh wait, actually they want to uphold the American constitution, the exact opposite of what terrorists want, which is to destroy America.

They also want Americans to be protected, the exact opposite of what terrorists want.

In other words, you just made up some shit you picked up from far left sources.
