We need to stop these cyber terrorists now ! We need new highly restrictive legislation passed ASAP !

I mean, obviously they have no clue who these people are or where they are, even tho they can post twitter any time they want, and they will probably never be apprehended ... mostly because they're probably sitting inside CIA or NSA HQ.

I would not doubt this.

The whole thing seems like a security exercise.
