My favorite computer program used for terror.

achh. I love this program. Just last night I was tracking the San Diego fires with live data (not live images, just fire markers) in 3D. I knew the bad guys could use Google Earth just as well as I could, and here's the official story:

Using Google Earth to target for terror

Al-Guardian reports today that 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's Fatah's 'al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade' terror group is using Google Earth to flesh out targets in Israel for terror attacks.

Members of the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a group aligned with the Fatah political party, say they use the popular internet mapping tool to help determine their targets for rocket strikes.

"We obtain the details from Google Earth and check them against our maps of the city centre and sensitive areas," Khaled Jaabari, the group's commander in Gaza who is known as Abu Walid, told the Guardian.

Abu Walid showed the Guardian an aerial image of the Israeli town of Sderot on his computer to demonstrate how his group searches for targets. [And you all thought Hamas controlled the Gaza Strip. CiJ]
