Al Qaeda Images and Digital Forensics

Researcher's Analysis of al Qaeda Images Reveals Surprises is a brief, well-written summary of a forensic analysis of images published digitally by al Qaeda.

It shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the images had been altered before publication.

There's nothing dramatic or startling here, but it's a quick read and a fascinating look at what can be learned from online images and files.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
