The ongoing cyber war between the military and the CIA is getting nasty, with the agency crying foul after losing its favorite terrorist message board. And now Saudi princes and Texans are being dragged into the fight, too.
The Pentagon's special hacker unit, called Joint Functional Component Command-Network Warfare, took down a website set up by Saudi intelligence and the CIA to bait terrorists after it says the site was being used by fighters to plan attacks inside Iraq. One counter-terrorism official disputes this, telling the Washington Post:
"The site wasn't a pipeline for foreign fighters, it was a broad forum for extremists."
Oh, well in that case!
The attack also shut down 300 servers in Texas, Germany, and Saudi Arabia, which really pissed off the royal family, who considered the site their "honey pot" of terrorist information.
