Taliban winning the new media War 2.0?

The skilful use of old and new media technologies by terrorist organisations threaten to undermine the efforts of Coalition armed forces in countries such as Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to an Australian National University (ANU) researcher.

Speaking to Computerworld ahead of the War 2.0: Political Violence and New Media conference being held at the ANU, Prakash Mirchandai, a visiting fellow at the ANU Strategic and Defence Studies Centre, said terrorist organisations such as Al Qaeda had successfully harnessed technologies such as video and mobile phones to bypass Coalition messages conveyed by mainstream media.

If you look at where the Taliban is getting its message across to the non-committed Afghanis it is through video, he said. Theyre shooting Jihadist videos which are very sophistically edited and put on DVDs and the Internet.
