Northeast Intelligence Network: Ahead of the rest & proud of it

13 January 2007: It was on January 6, 2007 that the Northeast Intelligence Network, jointly with sister site Canada Free Press warned that airport “webcams” or the online security cameras at airports are being exploited on websites and forums populated by Islamic terrorists and their sympathizers. On January 10, 2007, four days after our article was published, a confidential assessment was jointly issued by the FBI and the U.S. Homeland Security Department stating that “online webcams could be a valuable tool for extremists determined to attack critical targets.”

It was not until January 11, however, full five days after our report warning of this vulnerability that other media sources published this matter of public security, such as the article that appeared on a Canadian media news source web site.
