U.S. To Form Task Force To Fight Online Militant Propaganda

It should be interesting to see how the government plans on preventing "violent online extremism." I say we tactically nuke Twitter and Facebook and that should solve the problem altogether. Ta-da! No more radical posts on social media. wink

A new group known as the Countering Violent Extremism Task Force will "integrate and harmonize" government efforts to prevent violent extremism in the United States, White House national security spokesman Ned Price said. Some of the changes appear largely bureaucratic, however, and reflect the government's ongoing struggles to address the Islamic State's presence online. President Barack Obama is working to reassure the public that his administration is succeeding against Islamic State in the wake of recent attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California.
