US helps Russia trash Islamic militant Web sites

Now that's what we call Net Aid

The FBI has offered Russia a helping hand in cleaning up the Web from Islamic militants fighting in Dagestan. According to a report by the BBC the Feds have offered to trash Web sites set up by Islamic militants and "eliminate" them. Although there has been no official confirmation it would not be the first time such tactics have been used in international disputes. Earlier this year it was reported that the CIA had been given the go-ahead by President Clinton to wage a cyberwar against Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic. Tim Richardson
